Journey into the Four Realms featurette from Disney’s Nutcracker movie

A new video mini-feature asks the main actors for Disney’s “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” to introduce us to the magical realms Clary will visit throughout the film. There is the Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, and Land of Sweets. There’s also the ominous Fourth Realm and its ruling tyrant, Mother Ginger, which might hold the key to returning harmony to the unstable world.

This is a great way to understand the backstory of the movie without getting too many plot spoilers.

Is seeing the Nutcracker ballet set to Tchaikovsky’s music part of your holiday tradition? Disney hopes you’re ready to add a new holiday tradition by heading out and seeing this movie.

November 2nd is right around the corner. So we should be hearing a lot more about Disney’s Nutcracker soon.

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” waltzes into theaters on November 2nd.
