THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS is Disney’s live-action fantasy adventure loosely based on the classic Tchaikovsky ballet.
Young Clara needs a magical, one-of-a-kind key to unlock a box that contains a priceless gift. A golden thread leads her to the coveted key, but it soon disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world.
In that world, she meets a soldier named Phillip, a group of mice and the regents who preside over three realms. Clara and Phillip must now enter a fourth realm to retrieve the key, restore harmony to the unstable land and save the day.
If you love Christmas, ballet and all things sweet, you’ll probably find something to enjoy in this shiny festive fable.
