Where did you watch this movie?

Young Clara (Mackenzie Foy) is looking for 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 (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.

Let the mystery unfold
In 2018, the legend you know has a dark side.
Movie Connection(s):
The film took over the original release date for 2020 film "Mulan", pushing that film's release back to December 20, 2019, then finally to March 27, 2020, when 2019 Star Wars: Episode IX took over for a December release.

The film was shot on Kodak 65mm film.

Lasse Hallström completed principal photography, but due to his unavailability, Joe Johnston took charge for 32 days of reshoots.

This is a feature adaptation of "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King" by E.T.A. Hoffmann.

The movie marks Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen's third collaboration together.

This film is Nick Mohammed's second Disney Movie after the film "Christopher Robin".
