WE ARE LEAPING OVER DISNEY’S NUTCRACKER AND
THE FOUR REALMS TRAILER
For those who have followed us through the years, you know that our DIVA is a dancer. We were fortunate to have her in one of the best pre-professional schools in Georgia. With this came the opportunity to perform in their yearly Nutcracker performance. This was not a small show by any means. But the second largest in the state just behind Atlanta Ballet!

So after doing this since she was 6 and started as a baby mouse, we have come to know the story and the music very well. Both of us have read the original story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by E. T. A. Hoffmann as well as other smaller versions.
But to hear that Disney was doing a remake, we both literally squealed out loud. You don’t even want to know how loud DIVA screamed when she heard Misty Copeland was cast! Of course, the entire cast is filled with greats such as Morgan Freeman as Drosselmeyer and Helen Mirren as Mother Ginger.

This actually gave me chills. The beauty of the sets and costumes is outstanding. And as a parent who has worked behind the scenes for the ballet, I can only imagine the number of hours that went into it. But unlike the ballet, Disney has a twist on the story we know.
ABOUT DISNEY’S NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS
All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan 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 (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston, and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.
