Storyline

The Timeless Christmas Story Comes to Life in a Dazzling New Animated Film The enchanting tale of the Nutcracker prince and his magical kingdom has delighted children for generations. And this lavish new feature-length version makes the timeless Christmas story come alive with dazzling animation. It is Christmas Eve, and the Stahlbaum family is happily unwrapping their Christmas gifts. After all the merriment, seven-year-old Marie receives a very special gift--a mysterious Nutcracker--from her beloved Godfather Drosselmeier. When the house falls dark and silent, Marie discovers that this is no ordinary Nutcracker, but Godfather Drosselmeier's nephew, who was transformed into a wooden toy by the curse of the evil Madame Mouserink. To break the curse, the Nutcracker must win the love of Marie and defeat the malicious, seven-headed Mouse King. With a battalion of toy soldiers brought to life and the help of brave Marie, the Nutcracker defeats the wicked Mouse King and breaks the spell. ... Written by Anonymous

A sweet Christmas classic
1 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As far as the Jetlag Christmas outings go, I do prefer Magic Gift of the Snowman, but still find it an improvement on A Christmas Carol. The ending is perhaps abrupt and the voice acting is a little too corny at times, however the animation is overall warm and smooth, and Tchaikovsky's music proves to be as timeless as ever. I loved all the obligatory three songs too, Seasons of Love is really one to cherish forever, the dialogue is sweet and not too simplistic and the story has all the heart and charm it should. The characters do engage at least, Marie is very likable, the Nutcracker is dashing and the Mouse King is suitably menacing.

All in all, a classic for the festive season, and one of Jetlag's better animations overall. 9/10 Bethany Cox
