There is a lot of excitement brewing behind Disney’s ‘Into the Woods,’ and for good reason. The film stars Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine and Johnny Depp, all sharing screen-time to bring a laundry-list of classic characters to life.
“Into the Woods” is a musical that jumps between suspenseful thriller and humorous collection of children’s stories. Among the classic tales being retold are Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel. The film is centered around a baker and his wife, as their wish to begin a family sets them on a new adventure. The two are cursed after meeting a horrible witch and must save themselves before it’s too late.
The film is being directed by Rob Marshall, based on a script written by James Lapine. The film is set to release on Christmas day.
