Ellie Bamber is the latest addition to Disney’s upcoming The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
Deadline reports that the 19-year-old actress, who recently appeared in Pride, Prejudice and Zombies and will also star in the upcoming Nocturnal Animals, will star alongside Misty Copeland, Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman and Mackenzie Foy in the movie.
Directed by Lasse Hallstrom, the flick is a live action experience of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s 1816 story “The Nutcracker And The Mouse King”.
In the original Nutcracker, one of Clara’s Christmas toys — a Nutcracker doll — comes to life and battles the evil Mouse King with seven heads.
