Disney Live Action Film Nutcracker and the Four Realms To Open November 2, 2018

Disney Live Action Film Nutcracker and the Four Realms To Open November 2, 2018

An exciting bit of news out of D23’s Live-Action Films panel this week is that Walt Disney Studios is currently working on an adaptation of the classic Nutcracker story titled Nutcracker and the Four Realms.

Disney has lined up an all-star cast for the film including Keira Knightly in the roll of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Helen Mirren as Mother Ginger and Morgan Freeman as Drosselmeyer.  And in a tip-of-the-hat to the classic Tchaikovsky Ballet, esteemed ballet dancer Misty Copeland will round out the production.  The film will also feature cutting edge CG technology including motion capture which will be used to create The Mouse King.

The setting of this whimsical production will occur across four “realms” including the Land of Flower and the Land of Snowflakes.

The piece will be directed by Lasse Hallstrom whose previous credits include A Dog’s Purpose and Chocolat.

We know what we’ll be doing next November!



Readers are encouraged to check back for the latest news and updates regarding this production as well as the many other films unveiled at this year’s D23 Expo.
