Experience the fairy tale of ‘The Nutcracker and The Four Realms’ with a new trailer
If there is anyone who understands fairy tales then it’s the incredible artists and storytellers of Walt Disney Pictures and now they’re ready to take audiences into an exciting new world with a reinvention of a classic story in The Nutcracker and the Four Realms which has just released its new trailer.
Experience the wonder and magic below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
All Clara (MacKenzie Foy) wants for a Christmas is a key. A special key that will unlock a priceless gift left to her by her mother. Arriving at her godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, Clara finds herself lost in a fantastical parallel universe where she meets a dashing young soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight) and encounters the nefarious and tyrannical Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren). With the only hope of returning to her home, Clara joins forces with Phillip and the Sugar Plum Fairy (Keira Knightly) to save this fantastical realm and find her special key….before it’s too late.
While the first teaser gave a taste of this magical new film, this new trailer truly takes us inside the fairy tale realm of The Nutcracker. Using both the classic source material by E. T. A. Hoffmann and Tchaikovsky’s legendary ballet as inspiration noted filmmakers Lasse Hallström (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Casanova) and Joe Johnston (Captain America: The First Avenger, The Rockeeter) have crafted an astounding cinematic experience that will sweep you up in its adventure and visual splendor.
The elements assembled including Keira Knightly’s The Sugar Plum Fairy, Helen Mirren’s Mother Ginger, Morgan Freeman’s Drosselmeyer and the film’s exotic winter setting exhibit all of the wonders that we expect from the most classic fairy tales and I like how Hallström and Johnston have worked very hard to convey a sense of fairy tale wonder that is present in the ballet, which has enthralled audiences for decades and which continues to do so.
But being Disney there’s also a modern twist here and I was particularly entranced by the trailers use of a unique rift on No Doubt’s “I”m Just A Girl”, and it charts a unique frame of view for Mackenzie Foy’s Clara who will make an extraordinary journey in order to bring a sense of balance back to the Four Realms.
Get ready for an extraordinary journey of fairy tale storytelling when The Nutcracker and the Four Realms arrives in cinemas on November 22.
