Disney has announced that the live-action fantasy movie, “The Nutcracker And The Four Realms”, will be coming to Disney+ on Friday, December 4th.
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 “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.
This will be one of the last Disney movies to leave Netflix in the US and Canada, as the film was part of a deal where all of Disney’s film releases between 2016 and 2018 went to Netflix after their cinema/home video release. However “The Nutcracker And The Four Realms”, along with other films releases during those two years, it’s expected to return to Netflix later in the decade due to an existing second window contract.
“The Nutcracker And The Four Realms” will leave Netflix in the United States and Canada on November 28th.
“The Nutcracker And The Four Realms” is already available on Disney+ in some countries.
