Disney has released the final trailer for The Nutcracker and The Four Realms, and it looks like you may need eye-drops when you walk out. Every inch of every frame seems to be packed with detail.
While I love visually interesting movies, I also want to be able to focus. Every bit of footage we’ve seen from Nutcracker makes me feel as though I won’t be able to do that. We’ll just have to wait and see if it’s just caused by the nature of trailers.
Here’s the official synopsis.
All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. 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. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston, and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.
The Nutcracker and The Four Realms hits theaters on Nov. 2.
