The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is an upcoming American fantasy film directed by Lasse Hallström. It is based on E.T.A. Hoffmann's, 'The Nutcracker and the Mouse King' and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's ballet, 'The Nutcracker'.
We will meet Clara, (Mackenzie Fox), who desperately needs the key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden threat, presented to her at Godfather Drosselmeyer's (Morgan Freeman) Christmas party, leads her to this key. However, it quickly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It is there that Clara encounters a soldier named Philip (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 Philip must brave the mysterious fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara's Key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.
We will see a variety of Hollywood stars, including Keira Knightly as Sugar Plum Fairy, Misty Copeland as the Ballerina, Miranda Hart as the Dew Drop Fairy and Jack Whitehall as Harlequin.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms will enter UK cinemas the 26th October 2018.
