Under the direction of Rob Marshall, Disney’s Into The Woods will take a darker, more grown-up look at the fairy tales that are so familiar to us all. As we head into the deep, dark forest, we will meet the tale’s possibly evil Witch (played by Streep), as well as Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), her Prince Charming (Chris Pine), the Big Bad Wolf (Johnny Depp), Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford) and Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy). James Corden and Emily Blunt are also on board as the Baker and his Wife, who must confront the Witch to lift a curse that has kept them from having children.
The film also stars Tracey Ullman, Lucy Punch, Christine Baranski and Daniel Huttlestone.
Here’s the trailer:
Here’s the official synopsis:
“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 and Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the Witch (Meryl Streep), who has put a curse on them.
