The Nutcracker And The Four Realms, Disney’s live-action retelling of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s 1816 story The Nutcracker And The Mouse King, will be released on November 2, 2018 — in time for the holiday season.
It’s had been the same date set for the studio’s live-action version of its 1998 animated feature Mulan. That pic will now get a slot sometime in 2019.
Lasse Hallstrom directs The Nutcracker And The Four Realms, which stars Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Eugenio Derbez, Mackenzie Foy and Ellie Bamber. The movie is produced by Mark Gordon and Larry Franco. The original story inspired Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s 1892 ballet.
Paramount also has an untitled event film scheduled for that date, and Fox is releasing its X-Men spinoff Dark Phoenix starring Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Olivia Munn and Sophie Turner.
Those are huge movies; will anyone blink?
