When D23 Expo announced a new movie based on The Nutcracker, my ballerina and I were so excited. Finally a movie that would bring one of our holiday favorites to life in an existing way. Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms new trailer is here and it does not disappoint.
All Clara wants is a key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at her 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.
The Nutcracker and The Four Realms is based on E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale and stars Mackenzie Foy, Morgan Freeman, Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, Jayden Fowora-Knight, and features a special performance by Misty Copeland.
To celebrate the new trailer try making one of these delicious recipes:

The holidays are here! No alarms, no homework, just hanging out as a family, and having fun. It is the time of year for traditions. We have a lot, from baking cookies to picking out the best Christmas tree ever. One of my favorite traditions though, are our movie nights. Once a week, we all get on our pajamas, grab a blanket, and snuggle up in the living room to watch a classic holiday movie.
I love these moments as a family. They are a reminder to my husband and I to slow down. To be in the moment with our children and each other. The kids really look forward to it each week, helping me plan out our snacks and what movie we should watch. My hope is that it will be something they remember when they get older.
I wonder if they will let me use my pillow this time or hog it all like usual?
Planning the perfect family movie night is easy. All you need are PJs, blankets, pillows, snacks, and movies.
