Disney just released the first trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, an upcoming 2018 fantasy film that’s based E.T.A. Hoffmann’s The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. The film stars Mackenzie Foy, Keira Knightley, Misty Copeland, Jack Whitehall, Helen Mirren, and Morgan Freeman, and comes to theaters on November 2nd, 2018.
“All 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. “
