Final trailer of Disney's 'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms' is out and it promises to be a lavish treat
The film largely takes place in a stranger and mysterious parallel world, which is home to Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, and Land of Sweets
Disney has released the final trailer for its next live-action fairy tale film, 'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms'. Directed by Lasse Hallström (Chocolat) and Joe Johnston (Captain America: The First Avenger), the fantasy drama stars Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Eugenio Derbez, Matthew Macfadyen, Richard E Grant, Misty Copeland, Helen Mirren, and Morgan Freeman.
The film largely takes place in a stranger and mysterious parallel world, which is home to Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, and Land of Sweets. All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key — a one-of-a-kind key — that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. 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 the three realms. 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.
The Mouse House's Nutcracker adaptation was directed by Hallström, before scheduling conflicts prevented him from overseeing the film's reshoots and Johnston stepped in to helm additional photography. They have both agreed to share directing credit on the movie.
'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms' opens in US theaters on November 2, 2018. Check out the final trailer below.
