Splash Entertainment has unveiled plans to develop, produce, and distribute Daisy and The Nutcracker. The educational live-action and 3D-animated specials, starring dancers from the New York City Ballet are based on the company’s production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker. Daisy and The Nutcracker has been co-created by New York City Ballet and Mermaid Media, and written with Gabe Pulliam. Daisy & The Nutcracker specials are about Daisy, a high-spirited, irrepressible rag doll that wakes up one day to find herself in the middle of a magical production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker. The specials incorporate live-action elements into the animation, featuring New York City Ballet’s dancers performing Balanchine’s choreography.
