We haven’t seen much of anything from Into The Woods – except a teaser image of Meryl Streep as the Witch – until now. Disney is firing up the marketing machine for the upcoming musical mashup which takes some of the most iconic characters from the Brothers Grimm fairy tales and puts them into one exciting story full of song, adventure, romance, and family.
Based on the musical, written by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, of the same name, Into The Woods stars also stars Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, and Johnny Depp. Hit the jump to check it out.
It is a nice little tease that does set the tone of the film, despite not having any musical sequences. That being said, the star studded cast should be more than enough to get audiences excited for Into The Woods, which should have plenty of humor and heartfelt moments. The strong visuals and score should also whet fans’ appetite for this highly anticipated film.
Directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Into The Woods also stars Lilla Crawford, Daniel Huttlestone, MacKenzie Mauzy, Billy Magnussen, Tammy Blanchard, Lucy Punch, Frances de la Tour, Simon Russell Beale, Richard Glover, Joanna Riding, and Annette Crosbie. It opens in theaters on December 25, 2014.
“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.
