We had plans to go see this move in the theater but then once my husband was diagnosed with cancer, all of our plans changed. We never were able to make it to see the movie, but I’m happy to know we don’t have to wait much longer now. I have just received word that THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS will be coming to Digital HD and Blu-ray™ on Tuesday, January 29th
About the Movie:
In the coming-of-age tale, “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” Keira Knightley stars as the Sugar Plum Fairy and Mackenzie Foy portrays Clara. Helen Mirren brings much-feared Mother Ginger to life, and Morgan Freeman stars as Clara’s eccentric godfather, Drosselmeyer. Eugenio Derbez and Richard E. Grant play Hawthorne and Shiver, the regents of the Land of Flowers and Land of Snowflakes. Jayden Fowora-Knight was cast as Phillip Hoffman, the Nutcracker soldier come-to-life. Matthew Macfadyen, Ellie Bamber and Thomas Sweet were called on to play Clara’s father Mr. Stahlbaum, sister Louise, and brother Fritz, respectively. Omid Djalili and Jack Whitehall portray palace guards Cavalier and Harlequin, and the film features a special performance by ballet greats Misty Copeland and Sergei Polunin.
Filmed in England at Pinewood Studios and various locations in and around London, “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston. Suggested by the short story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” written by E.T.A. Hoffmann, and “The “Nutcracker” ballet written by Marius Petipa, the screen story and screenplay are by Ashleigh Powell. The film is produced by Mark Gordon and Larry Franco, and executive produced by Sara Smith and Lindy Goldstein. Linus Sandgren, F.S.F., is the director of photography, Guy Hendrix Dyas serves as production designer and Stuart Levy, ACE, is the film editor. Jenny Beavan and Jenny Shircore are the costume designer and makeup and hair designer, respectively. Max Wood and Marc Weigert are the visual effects supervisor and visual effects producer, respectively. Music is by James Howard with a score conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, featuring piano soloist Lang Lang.
