Go behind the scenes of Disney’s “The Nutcracker And The Four Realms” in this brand new “Crafting The Realms” featurette. Watch as the cast and crew reveal more about the story and show just how much magic is done behind the scenes! 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. Disney’s “The Nutcracker And The Four Realms” opens November 2nd. The video can be found in the video archive while screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.

The Oscars have been handed out, and Helen Mirren made a surprise appearance at the ceremony – not as a presenter (she and Jane Fonda handed the Best Actor trophy to Gary Oldman) but as a presenter to a brand new jetski that was promised to the winner with the shortest speech. Pictures from the arrivals and the show have been added to the photo gallery with more to come. Edit: Lots of additional pictures have been added with many thanks to Ali, Claudia and Maria, your help has been very appreciated.
