Better mark the calendars, The Nutcracker and The Four Realms will be on TV next week.

The 2018 fantasy adventure stars Mackenzie Foy, Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Matthew MacFadyen and Miranda Hart.

Prepare to enter a spectacular fantasy world with a Christmas flavour in this sumptuously designed Disney adventure based on the world of the classic ballet.

Mackenzie Foy stars as Clara, a young woman who more than anything else want to find a key that will unlock a gift given to her by her late mother.

When It finally appears the key is in her grasp, it slips away from her and disappears into a fantastic world consisting of four realms and inhabited by gangs of mice, living toys, and magical fairies.

As she chases after it, she makes a new companion in the form of a nutcracker solider named Phillip, and must venture into the ominous “Fourth Realm” to get the key from tyrant Mother Ginger’s (Helen Mirren) clutches.

And, really, Keira Knightley’s turn as the Sugar Plum Fairy is worth watching the movie for alone.

The Nutcracker and The Four Realms will be available on Sky Cinema and NowTV from Friday, November 8.

And there are plenty of other brilliant films coming this month, too: Dumbo (November 29), Little Monsters (November 15) and Captain Marvel (November 22).
