The first trailer for The Nutcracker, the new live-action adventure from Disney, has debuted online. Click below to watch it:
The movie stars Keira Knightley, Eugenio Derbez, Miranda Hart, Jack Whitehall, Misty Copeland, Morgan Freeman, and Helen Mirren, with newcomer Mackenzie Foy in the lead role.
The story is a live-action adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffmann's The Nutcracker and the Mouse King and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker.
We follow Clara, a young girl who is desperate to get her hand on a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. When she discovers the key's location, it promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world.
It’s there that Clara 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 brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.
Lasse Hallström, director of The Cider House Rules and What's Eating Gilbert Grape, is in the director's chair.
The Nutcracker will be released into UK cinemas on October 26th.
