When I was a little girl, dancing was my escape from reality. Every year at Christmas time I would live for the moment when I could lose myself in the Nutcracker, the story of Clara and her journey, much like my own where she would lose herself in a magical world brought to life where the world, even with its obstacles along the way, will all be saved by a magical Snow Queen and of course the handsome prince.
The years passed and suddenly I went from being mesmerized by the show to dancing the show and the dream became a reality and to this day, my beloved nutcracker is never far from my side. Now thanks to the imagination and magic of Walt Disney Studios, next November, families everywhere will be taken on a journey into this incredible world as Disney Studios brings to life the story of The Nutcracker And The Four Realms.
The story tells the tale of young Clara and the one and only thing that Clara (Mackenzie Foy) 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 (Morgan Freeman) 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 (Jayden Fowora-Knight), 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 (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.
Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy and featuring a special performance by Misty Copeland, Disney’s new holiday feature film The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is directed by Lasse Hallström and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale. In theaters on Nov. 2, 2018.
Next November, let the magic of The Nutcracker And The Four Realms dance its way into the hearts of your family, and into your imagination.
