|Christmas in Czarist Russia, 1900. A spoiled prince lives in a magnificent palace with his magician uncle, Drosselmeier. To test the young prince, Drosselmeier gives him one of two magic nuts. Each one has the power to make a wish come true. The prince carelessly plays with the nut as he muses that life would be much more fun if everyone was a toy. In a flash, the prince and his servants are turned into toy nutcrackers. The evil mouse king that live within the palace walls hatches a plot to take over the kingdom. Drosselmeier persuades Clara, a young girl who is enchanted by the nutcracker prince, to set off on a mission to save the kingdom. Will they be able to reverse the magic spell and save the kingdom from tyranny?|
Editor's NoteThis delightful tale, most famously adapted into a ballet by the great composer Tchaikovsky, has been a perennial family Christmas favorite. Based on E.T.A. Hoffman's beloved children's story, THE NUTCRACKER AND THE MOUSE KING follows a pampered prince who lives in an exquisite castle and gets everything his heart desires. His magician uncle Drosslemeier wants to teach the spoiled boy a lesson. While playing with two magic nuts, the prince carelessly declares that life would be so much better if everyone were a toy. Suddenly, he and his entourage turn into toys. Now, in their absence, the evil Mouseking is trying to usurp the throne. Uncle Drosslemeier enlists the help of Clara to help reverse the spell and save the kingdom from tyranny. Famed actors and comics including Leslie Nielsen (THE NAKED GUN movies), Eric Idle (of MONTY PYTHON), and Fred Willard, add their recognizable voices to the animated fun.
