'Nocturnal Animals' Star Ellie Bamber Joins Disney's 'The Nutcracker'
The 19-year-old actress, who will star in the upcoming Nocturnal Animals, joins prima ballerina Misty Copeland, Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman and Mackenzie Foy in the flick, which is based on 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.
The movie will be directed by Lasse Hallstrom.
