The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Trailer

"It's Christmas Eve… A time of mystery… Expectations… Who knows what might happen…?" Disney has debuted the first teaser trailer for another new live-action take on a classic story - The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. Going back to the original story, this one has a darker side (as the teaser trailer teases) and seems to be a mix of Alice in Wonderland and Chronicles of Narnia. This new movie stars Mackenzie Foy as Clara, who gets lost in another realm where she finds gingerbread soldiers and an army of mice. The cast includes Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Matthew Macfadyen, Miranda Hart, Ellie Bamber, and Jack Whitehall. This looks like exactly what you would expect from Disney - magical and pretty much the same color palette and CGI worlds as every other live-action movie they have made in the last few years. But they keep making tons of money, so they keep making these. Check this out.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, from YouTube:

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

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 at godfather Drosselmeyer's (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange, 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. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is co-directed by Swedish filmmaker Lasse Hallström (What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Cider House Rules, Chocolat, The Hoax, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, Safe Haven, The Hundred-Foot Journey, Hachi: A Dog's Tale, A Dog's Purpose) and American filmmaker Joe Johnston (Honey I Shrunk the Kids, The Rocketeer, Jumanji, October Sky, Jurassic Park III, Hidalgo, Wolf Man, Marvel's Captain America). The screenplay is written by Ashleigh Powell; based on the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann. Disney will release The Nutcracker and the Four Realms in theaters everywhere on November 2nd, 2018 next year.

Nice try Disney, but you aren't going to be making a universe out of the NUTCRACKER.

Yeah, I was fighting The Beauty and the Beast and eventually I have given in. This time I'll just take my daughter when it comes and go with her to see it. ,,

Good call sir. That's what us loving fathers do. 😉

I never had problems with that. I am just fading sometimes, but generally, I am more than ok with the whole thing, enjoying times with my kid. Let me kindly return my best regards to you, sir ...

Blandness in all its glory. Our kids deserve better.

tarek on Dec 20, 2017


Hear, hear, a sound of reason. We both know tarek, film industry is what it is, no matter how reasonable everything that is opposite resonates ...

I know. The Force (of money) is strong with Disney.

tarek on Dec 21, 2017


And that is big and strong Force since they also bought Fox.

They may have our numbers. they can take our names. But they'll never have our hearts. Let the sky fall... ;D

tarek on Dec 21, 2017


Well, things are not great, I agree, but I don't see it as to be so dark. 'They' mostly know nothing about us since they are arrogant and ignorant enough not to care about us. We are cool tarek, I am convinced in that, regardless what they have or not ...

I was just playing with Adele'Skyfall lyrics. ;D. We can't stop the train of capitalism, but we can "not take it". If you take my mean Sir (with C3PO voice) ;D

Is it normal to have a movie this finished, nearly a year before its release? Perhaps it was intended to be released this year?
