SWITCH: 'THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS' TEASER TRAILER
All Clara 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 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' STORIES
‘Four Realms’ suffers first and foremost from a painfully convoluted plot, one that requires its screenplay to spend most of its time explaining what's going on with dull exposition.
It looks pretty, and that is essentially where the lauding ceases. Aside from being a film to keep your kids occupied for an hour and a half, there isn’t anything of substance to the proceedings.
