Disney's new world is all kinds of magical

Treat your eyes and check it out.

Congrats Disney, you have outdone yourselves. The people behind some of our favourite fantasy worlds have just given a classic fairytale a big budget makeover and it’s pretty much the most majestic thing we’ve ever seen. Go behind the scenes of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms with their featurette:


  • Recognise Clara, the main character? That’s Mackenzie Foy, AKA Edward and Bella's child from Twilight
  • The pink-haired Sugar Plum Fairy is Keira Knightley - she rules over the Land of Sweets
  • They’re not the only familiar faces: Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and Richard E. Grant also star
  • The world’s been brought to life by the team behind 2017’s Beauty and the Beast
  • The gorgeous Land of Sweets was built using actual candy. Mackenzie Foy told EW the crew had to put signs up telling the actors not to eat it
  • The whole thing’s inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic story and the famous ballet version of The Nutcracker. The Royal Ballet stages a beautiful production every Christmas, which you can catch live on the big screen - find out more here
