Unlock the magic and discover the mystery as Walt Disney Pictures releases the official theatrical trailer (or trailer #2) for their upcoming film The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. View trailer below.
All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. 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.
I was hoping that a new trailer for this movie would be released sometime soon, which “now” being soon. This trailer, while shorter than the previous one, explains a bit more of the story’s narrative plot as well as plenty of new footage. I said before, I never really actually seen the stage play of the Nutcracker or even read any novelizations of the story. However, I have seen plenty of cartoon adaptations of the Nutcracker to have a understanding of what the story is about. All in all, The Four Realms looks quite interesting and I look forward to see it (and review) it when it comes out early November.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms opens in theaters on November 2nd, 2018
