About The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
In “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” Clara (Mackenzie Foy) is given a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a gift from her late mother. She’s given a golden thread by her godfather (Morgan Freeman) at the annual holiday party, which leads her to the key – sort of. As soon as she sees the key, it disappears into a parallel world where Clara meets soldier Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight) and a gang of mice.
Clara and Phillip must head into the scary Fourth Realm and face the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren) to find Clara’s Key and bring peace to the unstable world. The movie also stars Keira Knightly as the Sugar Plum Fairy and includes a special performance by Misty Copeland. You can watch the brand new trailer below to get a look into the four realms and this beautiful new world.
