Little known fact about me: I used to be a dancer. I danced for thirteen years before deciding not to go pro (yes, you have to decide that before you turn 15). One of my favorite dances of all time was “The Nutcracker.” It was a big deal to get cast in the ensemble, no matter how big or small your part was. Those memories are just some of the many reasons I’m excited to see Disney’s Nutcracker and the Four Realms this November!
About Disney’s Nutcracker and the Four Realms
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.
Disney’s Nutcracker and the Four Realms Poster
First, this movie is not a new announcement. We knew this film was coming back in 2015 when it was announced at D23. I wasn’t sure what story they were going to be telling with this classic ballet, but it sure looks exciting!Isn’t that movie poster gorgeous? I’ve loved Keira Knightley since her “Love Actually” days, and I cannot wait to see Morgan Freeman as Herr Drosselmeyer and Dame Helen Mirren as Mother Ginger. The costuming might just be my favorite part of the whole thing!
New Trailer for Disney’s Nutcracker and the Four Realms
Also, check out this new trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms! It will give you more of a glimpse and understanding of the story being told in the movie.
It looks a little different than the ballet, but not so different that it will offend the purists, I think!
Did you Know?
E.T.A. Hoffmann penned “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” in 1816. Alexandre Dumas Père’s subsequent adaptation, “The Nutcracker,” was set to Tchaikovsky’s music and the resulting ballet was commissioned in 1891 by director of the Russian Imperial Theatres. Premiering a week before Christmas in 1892, the fairytale ballet—which takes place on Christmas Eve—became a holiday tradition around the world. The New York City Ballet first performed George Balanchine’s “Nutcracker” in 1954.
