Walt Disney Studios New Trailer And Images From Disney’s INTO THE WOODS! written by Sean Gerber July 31, 2014 Walt Disney Pictures has released the first trailer and new images from INTO THE WOODS. The new spin on classic Brothers Grimm fairy tales sports a stellar cast including Meryl Streep (I could just stop there, couldn’t I?), Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, James Corden, and Johnny Depp. Check out the video and images below for stunning visuals along with a synopsis with more information on the film set to arrive in theaters on December 25. “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. Rob Marshall, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the Academy Award®-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” directs the film, which is based on the Tony®-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics. Produced by Marshall, John DeLuca, “Wicked” producer Marc Platt and Callum McDougall, “Into the Woods” will be released in theaters Dec. 25, 2014.

June 14, 2016 Robert Reineke I don’t know if I’d quite call it a “new spin” as the musical originated in 1986. But, as a Sondheim fan, I’m hopeful that it will live up to the legacy. My concern, which is about modern live action musicals in general, is that I don’t know if the stars have the singing chops to pull it off. Where’s the modern day Julie Andrews and crew, when you need them?
