Misty Copeland joins Disney’s live action Nutcracker film


Lasse Hallström (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, The Cider House Rules, Chocolat) is directing Disney’s live action film, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. It is based on the story by E.T.A. Hoffman.

The film follows a young girl who finds a Nutcracker doll among the family’s gifts and is charged by her parents to take special care of it. Under the cover of darkness, the Nutcracker comes to life, along with an evil Mouse King with seven heads, introducing Marie to the magical world of toys and the brave Nutcracker who will change her life forever.

Ballet star Misty Copeland shared the news that she is joining the film. She will play the lead ballerina role in the film’s sole dance sequence.

The live-action film is being written by Ashleigh Powell.

Mark Gordon is producing, and Lindy Goldstein is executive producing. Sam Dickerman and Allison Erlikhman are overseeing the project for Disney and Sara Smith is overseeing for the Mark Gordon Company.
