Disney+ released the trailer for the unscripted holiday special “The Hip Hop Nutcracker” featuring Rev. Run of hip hop group Run-DMC.
Run brings us along for a hip-hop reimagining of The Nutcracker ballet set in New York City narrating the story about a young girl, Maria-Clara, who embarks on a holiday adventure to bring her parents back together.
With help along the way from the magical toymaker, Drosselmeyer and the Nutcracker whom Maria-Clara brings to life, the journey takes her from the streets of New York to fantasy worlds where she battles with mice and toy soldiers and back in time to the Land of Sweets in order to find the key to unlock her holiday wish. Will it be enough to rekindle her parents’ lost love before the clock strikes midnight?
Watch the trailer below and mark your calendars to stream it on Disney+ on Friday, November 25, 2022.
