Nutcracker Mackenzie Foy CineMovie interview

Actress Mackenzie Foy has a black belt and she says that training helped her with the action in Disney's NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS. The Disney spectacular is in movie theaters November 3. Watch the video below. 

You might remember Mackenzie Foy from her debut in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2 as Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward's (Robert Pattinson) vampire offspring. She went on to appear in THE CONJURING and INTERSTELLAR. Now she's starring in a role of a lifetime as Clara in Disney's adaption of the NUTCRACKER. Watch she had to say about scoring the coveted Disney role. 

All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) 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 (Jayden Fowora-Knight), 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 (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston, and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.

THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS opens November 2.
