From Chocolat director Lasse Hallström, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms was filmed in the UK and features a number of British stars, including Helen Mirren, Matthew Macfadyen, Miranda Hart, Jack Whitehall and Richard E. Grant, with Keira Knightley playing the Sugar Plum Fairy.

And here’s the first teaser:

The official synopsis reads: “All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. 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.”

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is released in cinemas in the USA and UK on Friday 2nd November.
