Well, here's something new. I never knew that No Doubt's song "I'm Just A Girl" could actually be creepy. There's a first time for everything I guess?
This is a super short trailer, so we didn't get too much off of it. But apparently "Nutcracker and the Four Realms" is based on "Nutcracker and the Mouse King" as well as the ballet "The Nutcracker." I've seen the ballet before. I saw it as a kid on a field trip one time and for what it was, it was pretty cool. I enjoyed on a level that kid pretty much enjoys most things at a point in their lives. I wonder if this new movie will be too weird of a mish-match of stuff. I DO applaud though that Disney is taking a gamble on far less recognizable material. Yes, they are very busy bringing all their animated classics to the live action treatment. Not to mention "Star Wars" and Marvel and their new addition of 20th Century Fox assets. They are a company on fire right now. So I guess its about time to take a risk?
The visuals are, as expected, stunning. There are some good actors up to bat here. The costumes and make-up are jaw-dropping. But just how original is this? Why does this feel like pieces of other movies jammed into one movie? I guess we'll have to wait and see.
