The Nutcracker Prince is a 1990 Canadian animated fantasy film made by Lacewood Productions and released by Warner Bros. Pictures and directed by Paul Schibli.

Tchaikovsky‘s music to that ballet is used as the main instrumental soundtrack.

The film centers on a young man named Hans who is transformed into a nutcracker by mice, and can only break the spell if he slays the Mouse King and wins the heart of a girl named Clara. The film features the voice talents of Kiefer Sutherland as Hans (The Nutcracker), Megan Follows as Clara, Mike MacDonald as the evil Mouse King, Peter O’Toole as Pantaloon, an old soldier, Phyllis Diller as the Mouse Queen, and Peter Boretski as Uncle Drosselmeier.
