I admit I will be very curious to see how this adaptation is received. I’m a little torn myself so I’m looking forward to more and more information being released. The film stars Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, and Mackenzie Foy, and is a live-action take on E.T.A. Hoffmann’s 1816 novel “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” ballet. Foy plays Clara, a young girl who finds a key to a mysterious parallel universe. There, she encounters gingerbread soldiers, an army of mice, and a tyrant, played by Mirren. Knightley stars as the Sugar Plum Fairy and helps Clara on her journey.
The trailer suggests a bit of a more sinister turn to the classic story. The movie joins a number of live-action remakes that Disney has in the works and will be released in time for next on November 2, 2018.
