A live-action take on E.T.A. Hoffmann’s 1816 novel “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” ballet, Foy plays Clara, a young girl who finds a key to a mysterious parallel universe. There, she encounters gingerbread soldiers, an army of mice, and a tyrant, played by Mirren. Knightley stars as the Sugar Plum Fairy and helps Clara on her journey.
“It’s Christmas Eve: A time of mystery, expectations. Who knows what might happen?” Drosselmeyer, portrayed by Freeman, asks in the clip. Famed ballerina Misty Copeland is also featured as one of the lead dancers and has a solo sequence in the film.
