For media educator

The movie The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is inspired by the fairy tale The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written by E. T. A. Hoffmann, which is also based on the famous ballet composed by Pyotr Tchaikovsky. However, Disney's Nutcracker and the Four Realms does not follow the work as such, but develops its world from the elements of the fairy tale. In this Disney version, Clara's mother has died, and the family spends their first Christmas Eve without her.
