Clara and Phillip must encounter the fourth realm which is home to the scary tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), and retrieve her key.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms was directed by Lasse Hallström, along with Joe Johnston coming in for reshoots and some post-production work. The film was written by Ashleigh Powell and Tom McCarthy.
