Disney’s “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” a new re-telling of the classic holiday tale by E.T.A Hoffmann, arrives in theaters in November, just in time for the holiday season. Today, Disney shared a closer look at the characters inhabiting the film’s magical realms with these striking new posters.
Here’s the official film synopsis, courtesy of Disney:
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 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, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston.
The film also features Misty Copeland as The Ballerina, Richard E. Grant as Shiver, Jack Whitehall as Harlequin, and Eugenio Derbez as Hawthorn.
