Disney Releases First Trailer for 'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms'

The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms opens in the USA on November 2, 2018.

Just in time for the holidays, Disney has released the first trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, and it looks absolutely incredible.

Drawing inspiration from E.T.A. Hoffmann's original 1816 German fairytale The Nutcracker and the Mouse King and Tchaikovsky's classic ballet, it follows Clara as she gets transported to another world while following a golden thread meant to lead her to a precious key that's gone missing.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms was directed by Lasse Hallström (A Dog's Purpose, The Hundred-Foot Journey) from a script by Ashleigh Powell. Richard E. Grant and ballet stars Misty Copeland and Sergei Polunin also feature in the cast. Knightley is playing the sugar-plum fairy.

The group, formed by SM Entertainment , shot to fame after the release of their debut EP, Replay, in 2008. Kim released his first solo album in 2015 that reached number one on the Billboard World Albums chart.

In addition to Foy and Mirren, the movie is set to star Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, Misty Copeland, Matthew MacFadyen, Jack Whitehall, and Miranda Hart. With him, she travels to the Land of Snowflakes and the Land of Flowers - but it's in the Land of candies where she finds everyone's favorite Sugar Plum Fairy (Keira Knightley). 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 odd and mysterious parallel world. Helen Mirren also joins the film as the regent for the Fourth Tyrant, where Clara must go in order to retrieve the coveted key.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms hits theaters on November 2, 2018.

As is the way of modern blockbuster advertising, this version of The Nutcracker promises that "the legend you know ... has a dark side".
