The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

No one who has ever sat through a performance of The Nutcracker has done so for the slim-to-nonexistent story (something about a little girl opening Christmas presents, a dancing nutcracker who's really a prince, a bunch of evil mice and a Sugar Plum Fairy). Here, Disney tries to amp up the fantasy to Oz The Great and Powerful levels. This involves lots and lots and lots of computer animation. Mackenzie Foy (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) stars. Helen Mirren, Kiera Knightley and Morgan Freeman are in there somewhere too, wearing crazy wigs. 99 minutes PG.
