Disney’s ‘The Nutcracker and the Four Realms’ Featurette explores the Hollywood crafts

It takes many talented people to make a modern Hollywood blockbuster movie. From set design to costumes and everything in between, these craftsmen and women create the fantastical environments that are key to building a convincing world for the big screen. A new featurette trailer for Disney’s “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” features a few of the people involved in crafting the realms:

We love seeing the making of the costumes, hair, make-up and set of “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.” Guy Hendrix Dyas, a two-time Oscar nominee, created the elaborate set. As you might expect he referenced a lot of Russian art and architecture for the film’s design.

About the film:

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.
