I have to admit that the Nutcracker story is one that I’m unfamiliar with. I’ve never read the short story, seen the ballet, or seen any other film adaptation of it. So this Disney film directed by Lasse Hallström (and Joe Johnston for a month of reshoots) is my introduction to the story. Is it a tale worth telling? Read on to find out!
And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
