Disney's Nutcracker & The Four Realms Gets A Colorful First Trailer

Disney's Nutcracker & The Four Realms Gets A Colorful First Trailer

Sadly, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms won't be hitting theaters until 2018. But as Clara soon discovers, there's darkness beyond the vision of sugar plums, and getting home may not be as easy as she thought.

As you can see in the trailer above, the film stars Mackenzie Foy as a girl named Clara, who searches for a unique key that will open a mysterious box given to her by her late mother.

Chocolat director Lasse Hallström is bringing The Nutcracker and the Four Realms to life from Ashleigh Powell's screenplay. Once there, she comes across the Rat King and his soldiers, is whisked away by the Sugar Plum Fairy (a pink-haired Keira Knightley), and gets to watch a performance by IRL ballet superstar Misty Copeland. Her godfather, Drosselmeyer (Morgan Freeman - we don't need to explain what he's been in), presents her with a golden thread at her family's annual holiday party. 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). There may be a greater objective behind Clara's fantastic adventure that could determine the fate of the four realms. Directed by Lasse Hallstrom and produced by Mark Gordon, the fairy tale stars Mackenzie Foy, Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, Matthew Macfadyen, Helen Mirren and more. Helen Mirren also joins the film as the regent for the Fourth Tyrant, where Clara must go in order to retrieve the coveted key.

Both Sorvino and Judd are two of at least 80 women who have accused the producer of sexual assault and harassment. Miramax's comments led Jackson to avoid considering them for the films, he said.

Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms will dance into theatres November 2nd, 2018. Between scenes of a crashing carousel, slashing swords, and a marching army, the trailer warns us: "The legend you know has a dark side".

Regardless, you can ch-ch-check out the trailer (above).
