All Clara 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 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, 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, to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.
Oh my nutcracker! This morning, Disney released the first trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms! The film looks absolutely enchanting and I am so excited for November 2018. What are you waiting for? Watch the trailer below!
Exciting news! Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have our first look at Mackenzie as Clara in Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. The issue features two gorgeous stills along with a little more information about the film! The issue is available on newsstands now, so be sure to go and pick up your copy.
Before Alice stumbled into Wonderland and Dorothy blew into Oz, there was Marie, the young heroine of “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” who was whisked to a magical world of toy soldiers and militant mice in E.T.A. Hoffmann’s 1816 German fairy tale. Tchaikovsky’s celebrated 1892 ballet renamed her Masha, or Clara, but now, in The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, a new fantasy drama in the vein of The Chronicles of Narnia that pulls from both the ballet and fairy tale, she has a name that just might stick. And EW has your exclusive first look at the film right here.
Clara, in this vibrant adaptation helmed by Lasse Hallström (Chocolat), is brainy and bold. “She’s very smart and independent,” says 17-year-old Mackenzie Foy (Interstellar), who plays her. “She loves to think and find the fastest way to solve a problem.” Clara has lost the magical key that will unlock a priceless gift from her godfather (Morgan Freeman). To get it back, she must travel across the Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, and Land of Sweets, where she meets Keira Knightley’s Sugar Plum Fairy. “Clara is just fascinated with her,” Foy says.
But not everything is candy-coated fantasy: There’s also the foreboding Fourth Realm, ruled by Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren). “She’s a fierce character,” Mirren says, “with a modern edge.” But fans craving the classic need not fear. The film nods to Tchaikovsky’s score and has a ballet sequence featuring Misty Copeland. “Pretending to be in these imaginative worlds, it’s why I wanted to become an actress,” Mirren says. “It’s my dream come true, really.”
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms arrives Nov. 2, 2018.

Can you guys believe it? It’s Mackenzie’s 17th birthday. It seems like just yesterday she was turning 10! 16 was a great year for Mackenzie. She got to spend a few months in London shooting The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. We can’t wait to see what 17 has in store. Unfortunately, I did not have time to make a video as I was very busy with school. However, I did put all of the messages together to be viewed on the site. To check it out, click the thumbnail below! Be sure to head on over to Mackenzie’s Twitter and Instagram to wish her a very happy birthday.
