The warm fuzzies you feel every holiday season when watching The Nutcracker are about to be taken to a whole new level. Misty Copeland has been tapped to join Disney’s live-action adaptation of the E.T.A. Hoffmann classic and will no doubt add the perfect amount of #BlackGirlMagic.

Copeland took to Instagram to share the amazing news!
