Actress Mackenzie Foy, star of Disney’s “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” celebrates the film’s sneak peek with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse at Disney California Adventure. The preview is now playing at both the Disneyland and Walt Disney World resorts for a limited time.
Foy, who plays Clara in the film, met Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse who got all dressed up for a red carpet moment at the Sunset Showcase Theater at Disney California Adventure. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios the preview is inside Walt Disney Presents
We stopped by Disney’s Hollywood Studios this weekend to take in the special preview. It’s a cleverly edited look at the beginning of the film leading up to the main character, Clara finding her way into the four realms. At that point it becomes more like a regular movie trailer. The entire segment is about 12-minutes.
Can’t make it to the parks? Check out the trailer below:
We also really enjoyed this special featurette looking at the ballerina character of Misty Copeland:
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.
Disney’s “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” dances into theaters on 3D on November 2.
