Storyline

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.

Goofs

Every decorated conifer has the same silhouette, with an identifiable bare patch on the left side of the trees, suggesting that the image was simply recycled once rendered. Real trees look different from each other. See more »

Crazy Credits

The Disney logo plays an alternative version of the "When You Wish Upon A Star" theme that was re-arranged by James Newton Howard and conducted by Gustavo Dudamel with a piano solo by Lang Lang. When the logo is complete, Drosselmeyer's owl flies past the castle and into the opening shot of the movie. See more »

No....just....NO!
28 November 2018 | by ritarou-61757See all my reviews

I could go on for ages to give reasons why this film was a total disaster and not only because of my passion of the original story, the ballet, the music I'm in love with, but because from a film-production / creation point of view. I was so bored about the story that it totally killed my enthusiasm of waiting for a twist to come...when I ACTUALLY had like a 3-4 minutes flash of having seen something better (the disturbing clowns from the circus tent - they were so morbid and bullying that at least it made me feel something about the film for a short time) I turned to my boyfrined and said: "you know what, maybe, it is not THAT bad eventually"...he said opening his eyes: "what? why? I fall asleep..." and then I continued to be bored... -"We will protect the realm!"...against what? the original plot?

  • it is so slow and uncreative that it hurts because we've been waiting for this film to come out for a year, the trailer seemed super exciting but I never had the feeling of being entertanied or be in a flow.
-the nachos were good.
