If you aren’t familiar with The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, here is a little bit of “Skoop” about the movie:
Disney’s dazzling adventure “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms”– inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale and the beloved ballet “The Nutcracker”- carried audiences along with 14-year-old Clara (Mackenzie Foy) to a magical, mysterious world with breathtaking performances by Misty Copeland plus sweets, snowflakes, soldiers, scurrying mice… and no shortage of surprises.
Destined to become an annual viewing tradition for adventurers of all ages, the film arrives home instantly with never-before seen extras and deleted scenes on Digital and Movies Anywhere, and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD Jan. 29, 2019.
Bonus features include a discussion with American Ballet Theatre’s Misty Copeland about her role as the enchanting Ballerina Princess, her personal history with “The “Nutcracker” ballet, and her inspirational and historic rise within the world of dance.
Extras take viewers on the set of “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” to meet both new and reimagined characters, and discover how the Land of Sweets, Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and mysterious Fourth Realm were created to such dazzling effect. Deleted scenes provide a look at magical moments that didn’t make the final version of the movie.
In “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” Clara travels along a golden thread, presented at Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual party, eagerly searching for a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a music box that holds a priceless gift.
When she enters a mysterious parallel world, Clara encounters a Nutcracker soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and three Realm regents, including the Sugar Plum Fairy (Keira Knightley). Ultimately, she must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve the key and return harmony to the unstable world.

Our “Skoop” on The Nutcracker and the Four Realms:
Our girls are almost a decade a part so for us to find a movie that they both like is sometimes a bit difficult. I figured this movie might work for the both of them, however, I wasn’t sure.
I have to say that through out the movie, I heard the following comments from my family:
Disney has definitely outdone themselves this time.
I can only imagine what the budget was for this film!
The dancing is fabulous!
Her dress is so pretty!
If you read the previews about the movie and watch the trailer, one is lead to believe a certain way about a few things. However, once the movie really gets going, you will realize that what you THOUGHT was going to happen, doesn’t!
There is quite the plot twist in the movie that you aren’t expecting! I won’t ruin the surprise, however, you simply must watch the movie to see what I am talking about!
And the dancing by Misty Copeland is brilliant! You will be left spell bound watching her performance throughout the movie!
Since the weather is so brutal out now would be the perfect time to pick up or better yet order a copy of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms!
If you are planning a movie viewing party for The Nutcracker, may I suggest making up a yummy batch of these Mother Ginger Crinkle Cookies? I mean one must have themed movie food right?
