Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: While the movie is light-hearted and family-friendly, there are some really terrifying scenes. When the Nutcracker stabs the Mouse King, we see blood on his chest. Also, the Mouse King's appearance in Clara's house is a lot more scary than in the flashback told by Drosselmeier (though he does retain his comedic personality).

** This is keeping with the original novel, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, in which the Mouse King was featured much more than the play and is the BigBad.



* DisproportionateRetribution: The Mouse King wants revenge against the Nutcracker for the injury to his tail, not knowing it was an accident. He later expands his hatred to include Clara for stopping his vendetta, but mostly because she injured his tail ''again''.
