Disney, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, Featurette, Ballet, Ballerina, Misty Copeland

Disney’s “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” Featurette on Ballerina, Misty Copeland.

Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms will be coming to theaters this Friday, November 2nd. One of the ballerinas featured in this beautiful film is Misty Copeland, who is the first African-American woman in the American Ballet Theatre’s 75-year history to be promoted to principal dancer in 2015.

Disney has released a featurette on this enchanting ballerina on YouTube and I was blessed to be able to put it on my blog to show you her talent. Be sure to watch the featurette and see the movie this Friday, November, 2nd!


All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. 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. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston, and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.

Opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 2, 2018.
