Mackenzie Foy Shines In Trailer For Disney's 'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms'!
model Mackenzie Foy continues to
progress through the ranks of young Hollywood as she makes the jump
to leading lady in Disney’s latest fantasy
adventure The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. The
actress, who is best-known for her memorable moments in the horror
film The Conjuring and the sci-fi masterpiece
that is Interstellar, will be starring in the film
directed by Joe Johnston (Captain America: The
First Avenger) and Lasse Hallstrom(Chocolat). Now, 6 years after she made her feature film
debut in Twilight: Breaking Dawn, the 17-year-old
actress will lead a cast of all stars that
include Keira Knightley, Helen
Mirren, and Morgan Freeman.
Disney recently released its second trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, which is centered around Foy’s character, Clara, a determined young girl who’s tasked with saving the magical world that her late mother invented. This wondrous trailer, which features a slow cover of No Doubt’s “I’m Just a Girl”, is a clear indication that this is not a film you want to miss.
Along with the amazing trailer, Disney has amped up its promotional run for the film inspired by the classic E.T.A. Hoffmantale, and Foy takes center stage in this breathtaking new poster.
Before headlining a Disney film, Foy got her start playing Renesmee Cullen, the daughter of Bella and Edward, in the final films of the Twilight series. Her debut came toward the end of what was at the time one of the biggest franchises in the game, and looking back, she definitely handled it like a boss. Not only was she holding her own with the likes of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who are two indie powerhouses now, but she also kept the production in check with a swear jar. Foy discussed all this and more when she stopped by the Young Hollywood Studio way back when Twilight was all the rage.
Foy has come
a long way since her Twilight days and has
definitely cemented her status as a promising up-and-comer,
especially after winning the 2016 Saturn Award for Best performance
by a Young Actor for her role as Murph
in Interstellar. She can also be heard lending her
talented vocal skills to The Little Prince, the 2016
animated version of the classic 1943 novella that is the
most-translated book in the world and was voted the best book of
the 20th century in France. Forbes even has her on
their list for their choice of who should play Supergirl in the
highly anticipated DCEU film currently in development.
The Los Angeles native will no doubt continue to showcase that she is a force to be reckoned with in the industry, but before she becomes a household name, the actress is looking forward to her next big adventure -- her senior year of high school.
Foy, who has been acting almost her entire life, seems poised for success when her visually-stunning Disney film hits theaters. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms will be a big moment for her, and everyone should be marking their calendars to witness it.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is in theaters November 2, 2018!
