As the holiday season sleds ever closer, we must prepare ourselves for the latest slew of Christmas-themed movies. Take, for instance, Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, a family-friendly re-telling of E.T.A. Hoffman's story and Tchaikovsky's ballet 

We've gotten several trailers so far, but Disney has now released the official music video for the film, featuring the song "Fall on Me," sung by Italian singer Andrea Bocelli and his son, Matteo. 

Above all else, the music video is a chance for the studio to show off more of the eye-popping visuals that audiences will see in the finished product, and they do look pretty stunning. Like we've said in the past, Johnston's work on The Pagemaster made him the perfect candidate to co-direct, while Disney's history with projects like Fantasia has no shortage of beautiful imagery. 

Enjoy the music video below:

Doesn't that just capture the indescribable warmth and essence of the holiday season? Tell us it doesn't! Also, it could be too early to tell, but Disney songs often nab Oscar nominations; we wouldn't be surprised if "Fall on Me" is performed at the 2019 ceremony.

Directed by Joe Johnston (Jumanji) and Lasse Hallström (A Dog's Purpose), the movie follows young Clara (Mackenzie Foy), who discovers a magical world created entirely by her late mother

Starring alongside Foy are Morgan Freeman, Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, Eugenio Derbez, Matthew Macfadyen, and Jack Whitehall. 

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms decks the halls with boughs of holly in theaters Friday, Nov. 2. Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
