When Clara finds herself in a strange and mysterious parallel world that’s home to Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets, she must brave the ominous Fourth Realm and its ruling tyrant, Mother Ginger, to return harmony to the unstable world.
When I was a little girl, I saw a production of The Nutcracker on TV. The story captivated me. So, when my dad began the tradition of taking me to a live production every Christmas, it became a treasured moment for us both. Once my daughter was born, we continued the custom. This year, I’m so excited to be able to introduce it to my grandson with The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
Are you excited for the release of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms too? It opens in theatres everywhere on November 2nd. We’ve already made plans to go as a family and see a Stars and Strollers showing of it! In the meantime, download your copy of these free activity sheets.
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.
