Prepare for sinister visions of sugarplums to dance in your head because the trailer for Disney’s dark new version of The Nutcracker just dropped.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms trailer opens on Christmas Eve, where Drosselmeyer (Morgan Freeman) forewarns Clara (played by Mackenzie Foy of Interstellar, Twilight) that one never knows what the “mysterious” holiday may bring. (Not exactly how we'd describe Christmas, but cool.)

Enter Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy and ballerina Misty Copeland as...a ballerina. Oh, did we mention that Dame Helen Mirren plays a cruel villainess named Mother Ginger?

Amidst the chaos of crumbling carousels, marching soldiers and Kardashian-level holiday decor, there’s not a single nutcracker in the whole shebang. Guess we’ll have to wait until the film drops at some point in 2018 (presumably Christmas) to find out what that’s all about.
