Disney's The Nutcracker & The Four Realms Recipe

Will you be enjoying the new release of Disney's The Nutcracker & The Four Realms this weekend?

The movie officially released a couple of days ago, but we tend to enjoy our movies over the weekend when there is more time to relax and take it in.

In “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” Clara travels along a golden thread, presented at Drosselmeyer’s annual party, eagerly searching for a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a music box that holds a priceless gift. 
When she enters a mysterious parallel world, Clara encounters a Nutcracker soldier named Phillip, a gang of mice and three Realm regents, including the Sugar Plum Fairy. Ultimately, she must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve the key and return harmony to the unstable world.
We're also looking forward to the deleted scenes included with the DVD.  These are always a favorite and add so much to a movie.  The Nutcracker and the Four Realms deleted scenes include:
  • The Stahlbaums Arrive- As the Stahlbaums enter the Christmas Eve ball, the butler attempts to announce them to the assembled guests. 
  • Follow Your Ribbon- Drosselmeyer encourages a reluctant Clara to go find her gift. 
  • Clara Asks About Her Mother- Sugar Plum gives Clara a tour of her mother’s bedroom. 
  • Left, Left, Left, Left, Left- Wandering lost in the forest, palace guards Cavalier and Harlequin quarrel about which way to go. 
  • Out with the Old- Sugar Plum makes sweeping changes to the palace decor.
In celebration, Geeks Who Eat has created a delicious cookie recipe inspired by Mother Ginger!
