Bring Home Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

After walking the red carpet at the world premiere of Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, and seeing the film, I was in love. The movie is based on the book, not the ballet, and is a film that families can enjoy watching together for years to come.

One I saw the film, I couldn’t wait to share it with my children. Before opening night, I read them the books, took them to see Misty Copeland perform at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, and even did a fun little craft with them. Then, when they saw the movie, they loved it just as much as I did.

Now, the film is available on digital download, DVD and Blu-ray for families to add to their home movie collections. I immediately added the film to my Movies Anywhere account once it was available, and my daughter and I have been watching it almost every night since.
