Into the Woods

Arriving in theaters on December 25th, Disney’s ‘Into The Woods’ adapts the classic stage musical based on the book by James Lapine, who also wrote the screenplay to the movie, which will be directed by Rob Marshall.  The original live production, featured songs and music by Stephen Sondheim.

The modern adaptation features some of the biggest names in Hollywood and now we get a look at some of them!  Check out the images below:

First we see James Cordon and Emily Blunt as The Baker and his wife, a young couple desperate to have a child, who must make a deal with The Witch (Meryl Streep) who cursed them years previously:

And just for good measure, one more of The Baker, this time apparently at the mercy of The Witch:

Next we have stage and screen legend Christine Baranski as Cinderella’s Stepmother, along with her natural daughters, the “ugly step sisters” Lucy Punch as Lucinda and Tammy Blanchard as Florinda:

And here is Cinderella herself, played by Anna Kendrick (The real question being, does this mean she has to change the name of her song to ‘Goblets’?):

And her Prince, played by Chris Pine:

This next peak is much more of a sneak.  But at least we get a glimpse of Johnny Depp as The Big Bad Wolf:

And speaking of, nearly just as mysterious is this image of Little Red Riding Hood (Lila Crawford):

Speaking of youthful protagonists who should stay out of the woods, here is Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) and his mother (Tracey Ulman) as he goes off to sell their only cow, preferably for something that is not magic beans:

Finally, one last fairy tale character, Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy):

Disney has long excelled at bringing children’s classics to both the big and small screen, in live action and animation.
