Variety is reporting that Disney has selected Mackenzie Foy to play Clara in The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
Foy’s breakout role was Matthew McConaughey’s daughter in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. Foy will play Clara who is charged by her parents with taking care of a Christmas toy Nutcracker doll which comes to life and defeats an evil Mouse King with seven heads.
The film will be directed by Lasse Hallström. No release date has been announced, but it is presumed to be a holiday release.
