Remember Renesmee Cullen, the adorable vampire/human hybrid daughter of Edward and Bella in the Twilight movies?

Actress Mackenzie Foy (aka, Renesmee) also played Matthew McConaughey’s daughter Murph in Interstellar — and her (inter)stellar performance landed her a Critics Choice Award.

Well Foy grew up and is 15-years-old all of a sudden. We thought she was going to stay 12 forever. #thatvampirelife

But nope, she’s all grown up.

And the actress is now taking on a MAJOR Hollywood role — but this time she’s playing a full-blooded human.

Foy has been cast as Clara in Disney’s upcoming live action retelling of The Nutcracker, according to VarietyAnd we are SO PUMPED ABOUT IT!

Even Foy herself is super excited. She uploaded an Instagram post, stating, “I’m so excited and honored to be apart of this amazing film. A new adventure begins.”

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is based on the classic 1816 story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” by E.T.A. Hoffmann. In the story, Clara’s parents ask her to take care of a Christmas toy Nutcracker doll that comes to life and finds a way to defeat an evil Mouse King with seven heads.

Misty Copeland, the first African American woman ever to land principal dancer in the American Ballet Theater, will also appear in the film as the lead ballerina.

So obviously it’s going to be incredible.
