Synopsis: It is Christmas Eve and the Silberhaus children are excited for the festivities to begin. Marie and Fritz are playing in the children’s room when their godfather Drosselmayer arrives and presents them with an early Christmas gift, a Nutcracker. Marie witnesses a great battle between a vast army of toy soldiers led by the Nutcracker against a terrible platoon of mice commanded by the Mouse King. Follow Marie and Fritz’s journey in the Kingdom of Dolls, through the Christmas Forest, past the Almond Milk Sea, and the Palace of the Marzipans.
I have seen The Nutcracker before, but this was a whole new take on the classic. It kept my kid’s entertained the entire time and they especially loved that the main characters (Marie and Fritz) were transported to a candy world of gumdrops, candy canes, lollipops, and more! It’s a cute story and I liked the fact that Alicia Silverstone was the voice of Marie. The Nutcracker Sweet is a great family film to watch this Christmas.
