Disney has released the first trailer for Lasse Hallström's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
Starring Interstellar's Mackenzie Foy and featuring Kiera Knightley, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren, the film takes the classic Nutcracker story and brings it to the big screen. However, it certainly seems to be expanded and twisted on its head with some dark underpinnings. Certainly a greater bit of adventure thrown in here. It looks in the ilk of recent live-action offerings from Disney such as Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast. That's not a bad thing either as that recent slate of adaptations have turned pretty good.
The film is set for release in October 2018, so get comfy waiting for it. Hopefully, it will be a nice Christmas treat for the end of next year.
