Renowned dancer and Principal Dancer with the prestigious American Ballet Theatre Misty Copeland features in this new featurette from Disney looking at the upcoming winter extravaganza that Disney is preparing to unleash this winter in THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS.
THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS features Clara (Mackenzie Foy) and all she wants 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 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, the film is directed by Lasse Hallströmand Joe Johnston, and is inspired by the E.T.A. Hoffmann classic tale.
