Laurie Sparham  Disney

The first trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, Disney's live-action film adaptation of the famous ballet, dropped on Tuesday morning, and judging by the one-and-a-half-minute clip, things are about to get very dark for Clara and company.

Keira Knightley, known for her role as Elizabeth Swann in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series, is the Sugar Plum Fairy.

In the film, Clara (Mackenzie Foy) is determined to locate a key that will give her access to unlock a gift from her late mother. Once inside the castle where the celebration is taking place, she meets up with her godfather, Drosselmeyer (Morgan Freeman), who reminds her that it's Christmas Eve - a time of mystery and expectations.

Ashleigh Powell wrote the script for the movie, and it's being directed by Lasse Hallstrom.

Keira Knightley and Helen Mirren help bring The Nutcracker's fantasy world to life by playing the Sugar Plum Fairy and Mother Ginger, respectively. Clues take Clara to a parallel world where she discovers all kinds of wonderful and risky secrets, and ends up coming into contact with the whimsical Sugar Plum Fairy, played by Keira Knightley. Richard E. Grant and ballet stars Misty Copeland and Sergei Polunin also feature in the cast.

Disney opens The Nutcracker domestically on November 2 and in the United Kingdom, where the film was shot, on October 26. There she has to go through the Land of the Snowflakes, Land of the Flowers and Land of the candies to finally end her journey in the Fourth Realm where Mother Ginger lives to retrieve the key and get home.
