The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
Out Now On-Demand
A young girl is transported into a magical world by a nutcracker toy that comes alive at midnight in this Disney fairy tale adaptation starring Mackenzie Foy (Interstellar).
All Clara (Foy) wants is a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a gift from her late mother. 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 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. 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.
