Disney released a new poster this morning for this year’s holiday film, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
The film is inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s 1816 story, “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” and stars Keira Knightly, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Eugenio Derbez, Mackenzie Foy, and Ellie Bamber.
The film, directed by Lasse Hallström, centers on Clara (Foy), who is searching for the one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (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 (Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms will be in theaters November 2nd.
