It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas, although it looks more like Disney’s ALICE IN WONDERLAND in the final trailer released for Disney’s THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS.

Disney's THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS

From Walt Disney Studios’ Press Release

All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless 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 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 and featuring a special performance by Misty Copeland, Disney’s new holiday feature film Disney’s THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS is directed by Lasse Hallström and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale. In theaters on November 2, 2018.
