The Nutcracker & the Four Realms - 2018 - With Trivial Theater & Katie Fabrick
It's a brand new episode in the Fantasia Series! This past week and a half, I have been sharing episodes from a podcast series on Fantasia, which were all recorded in 2019. Since I was re-releasing the series, I decided that it was now or never if I was going to tackle the 2018 film The Nutcracker & the Four Realms. A film with the flimsiest of ties to Fantasia, but there were ties nonetheless. To spice things up, I invited Katie Fabrick back, as well as Nicki from Trivial Theater, who always makes even the worst movies fun to talk about. Follow Katie online!
