Teaser released for Disney's 'The Nutcracker And The Four Realms' — stars Morgan Freeman & features Misty Copeland as lead ballerina

Disney has dropped a teaser trailer The Nutcracker And The Four Realms, their live-action adaptation of 1816's  The Nutcracker And The Mouse King, which itself is the basis for the famous ballet of the same name.

Directed by Lasse Hallstrom and produced by Mark Gordon, Its stars include Mackenzie Foy, Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, Matthew Macfadyen and Helen Mirren.

The film also features a performance by Misty Copeland in the role of a lead ballerina.

It's description: All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) 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 (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
