Rediscovering a Classic

Disney’s awakening force concerning old favorites isn’t limited to Star Wars these days…

Christmas and the holiday season is the time to be surrounded by loved ones, including nieces and nephews who enjoy learning about a fun new movie to get excited about. At this point in the year, there’s an unrivaled collective energy that has the truest power to bring people together. Even the stress of shopping for those perfect gifts in these final days (who, me?) is no match for the Christmas joys of late December and the promise of the impending new year. And one of these joys is the timeless classic “The Nutcracker.” I remember going to the theater with family to see the cinematic version (a longgggg version) when I was a kid. It’s one of those stories you don’t forget.

However, according to Disney, “The Nutcracker” is a story almost as old as time that can be reimagined for a new generation. And, apparently, there are four realms that push the boundaries of vibrant imaginative curiosity we never knew about…

The theatrical release date is a bit off into the future on November 2, 2018. Still, if there’s one studio that can sustain movie magic, it’s Disney.

Actress Mackenzie Foy (the trailer’s young heroine) famously played young Murph in Christopher Nolan’s 2014 space epic Interstellar. In that film, Ms. Foy’s affecting performance was limited to earth. In The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, she’s the one who takes off into unknown galaxies realms.
