Disney has two big productions coming out in November and the first one is their reimagining of the Nutcracker called The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. They have released a bunch of featurettes that tease everything from the dancing we’ll be seeing to the sheer amount of details that was put into all of the sets and costumes.
Next we have a bunch of TV spots that tease some new footage from the movie and give us some clues about what changes this version is going to make to the story.
Out of all of Disney’s movies coming out this year this is the one that people seem to be the most unsure of. Lots of people go to see the ballet every Christmas but does that mean there is an audience for a movie?
Summary: All Clara wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key-which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip, a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, directed by Lasse Hallström, stars Mackenzie Foy, Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, Matthew Macfadyen, Helen Mirren, and Eugenio Derbez. It will be released on November 2nd.
