In his homeland of Alagaesia, a farm boy happens upon a dragon's egg -- a discovery that leads him on a predestined journey where he realized he's the one person who can defend his home against an evil king.
A classic Disney fairytale collides with modern-day New York City in a story about a fairytale princess who is sent to our world by an evil queen. Soon after her arrival, Princess Giselle begins to change her views on life and love after meeting a handsome lawyer. Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?
1920s Vienna. Nine-year-old Mary lives in a home filled with lovely things and loneliness. Bothered by bratty brother Max and neglected by well intentioned, but distracted, parents, she yearns for companionship and adventure. On Christmas Eve, Mary's beloved Uncle Albert arrives with the gift of a wooden nutcracker doll. Later that night, Mary's imagination brings the doll to life. Introducing himself as "NC," he takes her on a wondrous journey through a stunning dimension where toys assume human form and everything appears ten times larger. But danger lurks. An army of toothy rat creatures, led by the flamboyant Rat King and his devious mother, has unleashed a plot to overthrow humanity. When NC is captured and placed under a paralytic spell, Mary, Max and a spirited band of toy sidekicks must rescue him from the Rat King's clutches and thwart his wicked plans to 'ratify' the world.

As Uncle Albert sings the song about the pebble to Father and Mother in the study and the camera moves back and forth the ink smudge on Father's right ring finger changes in size and colour. See more »
What is a waste of time? To watch any movie with a rigid mindset
The Hoffman's classic is for the first time in hi-tech style (and in some pseudo 3D), with Tchaikovsky and even Dr. Albert. One would be pleased to see the favourite story albeit in a new rendition, but...
You can't please them all. One says "too rush", another "too slow". One says "music is nice", another "dumb music" (meaning Tchaikovsky, perhaps). And so on.
Cutting long story short, people with mechanical mindsets do always want a wetter water.
Ratdogs certainly do not like toys...
