Disney's 'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms' Trailer Debuts

The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker

Knightley is playing the sugar-plum fairy. It started with Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and is growing with the latest The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. It is being directed by Lasse Hallström (A Dog's Purpose, What's Eating Gilbert Grape) with reshoots by Joe Johnston (Captain America: The First Avenger, The Rocketeer). There may be a greater objective behind Clara's fantastic adventure that could determine the fate of the four realms.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, Disney's gritty reimagining of the classic holiday ballet (and weird German fairytale), finally has a trailer. Clues take Clara to a parallel world where she discovers all kinds of wonderful and risky secrets, and ends up coming into contact with the whimsical Sugar Plum Fairy, played by Keira Knightley. The first trailer also offers up a glimpse of Morgan Freeman as Drosselmeyer, Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, and Helen Mirren as Mother Ginger, the despotic ruler whom Clara must find a way to overcome. 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 unusual and mysterious parallel world.

Clara and Philip end up facing the dangers of the Fourth Realm, where Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren) rules.

The film also stars Morgan Freeman, ABT ballerina (and hardly seen in the trailer) Misty Copeland, Miranda Hart, Eugenio Derbez, Jack Whitehall, and Ellie Bamber. Let us know in the comment section below!

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