From Disney, the studio that brought you Beauty and the Beast, comes the reimagined tale of The Nutcracker. When Clara’s mother leaves her a mysterious gift, she embarks on a journey to four secret realms—where she discovers her greatest strength could change the world.
Let the mystery unfold.. A young girl is transported into a magical world of gingerbread soldiers and an army of mice. In Disney’s magical take on the classic The Nutcracker, Clara wants a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box holding a priceless gift. A golden thread presented at her godfather’s holiday party leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. There Clara encounters a soldier, a gang of mice and the regents of three magical Realms. But she must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve her key and return harmony to the unstable world.. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Wiki
I was very disappointed by the quality of this movie. Thought it would be worth watching due to the cast. I was wrong. Don’t watch it.
Art direction, production design, and set design are gorgeous, costumes are amazing, Mackenzie Foy is beautiful as Clara, and Keira Knightley is addicting as Sugarplum. With that being said, the movie unfortunately lacks good story and good character development, which are the main elements that make up a good film. Don't understand why Disney felt the need or thought it was a good idea to reinvent the whole story and stray so far from the original story of the ballet.
I don’t know why Disney did so much advertisement it’s a bust. The movie is too rushed into and hard to follow and the acting is so cringeworthy. The plot twist with the sugarplum fairy being bad and mother ginger being bad was a bad move. We only saw her one time before she was revealed to be good. It was also really boring. Probably wrong on the directors part.
Sweet, lovely and easy to watch story on a rainy day.
i'm ok with drastic changes to the classic, IF it is done well. this would be the ideal story to do that with. the original (as a play or ballet) is probably the worst example of well-plotted entertainment; 30 minutes of intro, then 20 minutes of the actual story, followed by 50 minutes of celebratory ending. it is really just lamely thought out excuse to allow 15 important parts to the up & coming dancers. Disney COULD have fixed that with their rendition. they chose to drastically change it. again, that's ok, IF they do that well. an interesting idea for a twist, but it just came across as doing it JUST to be different, and it fell flat. the title character wasn't even any kind of nutcracker. come on! so much opportunity was missed. visually it was beautiful, and the acting was good. just.... *sigh*
Please lower the HD price for this movie.
I thought this was a good movie!! I love that Mathew McFayden and Keira knightly was in it . Reminds me of pride and prejudice days !!! The movie was fantastic had some resemblance of chronicles of narnia vibes but a good wholesome movie !!
The characters were not pleasant enough make it more adult-ish😤😡
It was missing a lot of the feeling that Disney put in to there movies and I’m sorry to say, but it was really disappointing. I waited a whole year for this movie to come out. I was hoping for something new and exciting, but it was really predictable of what was going to happen, but I really liked the beginning. 🙂
Pourquoi est-ce UNIQUEMENT fourni en français?
I literally only watched for Renesme. But she was a hoot!! 10/10
Why is it only in French? I can’t find the English version on iTunes.. I want to watch it but I only speak English
was expecting a great movie, but was left a little confused as to what the point the story was trying to tell, i thought they would have elaborated on the realms more and adventured through them but instead focused on the bad guy, and by the end of it the main character didn’t 'grow' or 'learn' which is usually the reason for telling this type of story. i also feel they missed alot of opportunities for "magic" and "wonder'...disappointed :(
LOVED it 💗💗💗
It is not letting me watch it and payed 18$ like bo bo I want to watch it
The Nutcracker may in fact be the worse movie I have watched all year. I don’t know what the pitch for this movie was but I would love to know who the person at Disney was who thought to combine Tim Burton’s version of Alice in Wonderland with The Chronicles of Narnia. It just doesn’t fit together, the characters are bland, the movie tries to have a clever plot twist which fails completely and Kiera Knightly’s character actually irritated me. She sounded like she was on LSD & Helium throughout the shoot. If you have a young child, they will probably like this. As an adult I would recommend not being in the same room/touching this movie with a 10ft pole.
I would recommend this for a Christmas movie section anywhere, there were some bites that almost made me cry, I love this movie, it show that you need to find out how could you help change the world to be a better place, please continue the great work Disney, we look forward to see more great movies by you.
This is a great movie I went and saw it today it was fantastic. The costumes the music it was so good. There was a funny part in the movie where Clara meets Mother Ginger. It was hilarious. The clowns were just funny. Great acting by Morgan Freeman. I’ve seen him in Dolphin Tale 1 and 2. I would go and watch it again because it was a great movie. Thanks Disney for making all the movies possible.
This movie is not the best. The casting is great but it does not live up to the hype. At sometimes the movie can be fantastic with CGI effects but it can also be bit silly and boring!
