Misty Copeland is joining Disney’s live-action “Nutcracker” film. Ms. Copeland, a principal dancer at American Ballet Theater, announced her involvement with the project on Instagram.

Ms. Copeland will play what a Disney spokeswoman called the lead ballerina role in the film, “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.” Lasse Hallstrom will direct; Ashleigh Powell wrote the script, adapted from the 1816 E. T. A. Hoffmann short story “Nussknacker und Mausekönig” (“Nutcracker and Mouse King”).
