The upcoming fantasy movie stars Twilight's Mackenzie Foy, veteran actor Morgan Freeman, British actresses Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren and Knightley's Pride & Prejuidice and Anna Karenina co-star, Matthew Macfadyen.
Based on the classic Tchaikousky ballet and E.T.A Hoffman's story The Nutcracker & the Mouse King; Foy is Clara, a young girl in search of a rare key which will unlock a box holding a priceless gift from her late mother. During her godfather's (Freeman) annual holiday party, she recieves a golden thread which leads her to the key but it disappears into a strange and mystical parallel world...of ginger soldiers and an army of mice.
Directed by Lasse Hallstrom, The Nutcracker & The Four Realms is to be released on the 2nd of November this year ( a very long time to wait, yes), postponing the release of the live action version of Mulan.
