About the Movie

The colorful holiday classic is finally brought to the big screen, designed by famed children's story author and artist Maurice Sendak, and written for the first time to be as close as possible to the original story. A lavish, exciting and heart-warming celebration of dance, of music, and of life. Based upon the Pacific Northwest Ballet's original production.

An Absolute Classic

This movie is a favorite from my childhood--the costumes and music always completely hypnotized me. After spending 2 hours searching my parents' house for the missing VHS tape that I used to watch, I typed "nutcracker" into iTunes with very little hope...but lo and behold, here it is! I highly recommend this holiday classic for the delightful costumes and perfectly done music. Well worth the money, and will be enjoyed by children and adults.

The Only Version I Love

Been looking for this on DVD forever, has yet to be released. Thanks Itunes, its the only Nutcracker I've seen thats sufficiently creepy instead of fruity with mice in tutus. Made my Christmas day!

This one!

I gotta say. I just love this version of the Nutcracker. I'm a fan of the ballet and I've seen quite a few renditions but none seamed to strike a chord as well as this one. I actually saw this version of the ballet performed live a couple years ago in Seattle. If there's a Nutcracker movie to be seen, this is the one to see. It may have ommited the Sugar Plum Fairy but it's still excellent.
