Disney has released the new trailer for the upcoming Nutcracker film, and it looks spectacular!
The film is seasonally set for a pre-Christmas release on November 2nd.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms will model a similar plot to the classic ballet performance.
In fact, the movie will even feature Misty Copeland, legendary ballerina for the American Ballet Theatre.
My two summers spent at ABT’s Summer Intensive were the most informative of my training. It is one of the only programs I have experienced that gave me true insight into what it is to be held responsible for my craft in preparation for becoming a professional. To be surrounded by dancers from all over the world and to be taught by some of my own idols, as well as ballets biggest influences, was invaluable to my training there. The summer is a perfect entry point on your ABT trajectory! Link in profile
Misty made history when she became the company’s first female, African-American principal ballet dancer.
So don’t worry! The new film will still incorporate professional, beautiful ballet dancing.
The film stars Mackenzie Foy as young Clara, Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, and Morgan Freeman as Drosselmeyer.
Other big names include Matthew Macfadyen, Richard E. Grant, Helen Mirren, and Jack Whitehall.
In the movie, Clara attends her godfather Drosselmeyer's annual holiday party, during which she disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world.
The young girl encounters a soldier named Phillip, 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 travel to the Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve Clara's key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world, according to IMDB.
What a fantastic cast to to bring one of our favourite, magical ballets to life! Check out the new trailer below:
