The teaser trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, the new fantasy film from Disney, was released online on Tuesday and checks all the boxes for fans of Beauty and the Beast.

The film is the latest in line of live-action fantasy remakes from Disney, following the massive success of films such as Jungle Book, Maleficent and Cinderella.

Joe Johnston, the helmer of Captain America: The First Avenger, has been roped in by Disney to direct the reshoots for the film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, original director Lasse Hallstrom has not been sidelined but rather was unavailable due to scheduling issues and that he will be involved with post-production.

The cast, consisting of Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, ballerina Misty Copeland and Morgan Freeman, among others, is pirouetting in place for the shoot, which sources say will last 32 days and comes armed with material written by Tom McCarthy, the Oscar winner behind the drama Spotlight.

“The film is in very good hands in London while I’m away. I will return to post-production after the holidays,” Hallstrom said.

The movie is scheduled to be released on November 2, 2018. Next up for Disney are live-action remakes of Aladdin and Mulan.
