This week Disney released a new trailer and 10 character posters for its new film INTO THE WOODS based on the musical of the same name. The film hits theatres on December 25, 2014 and has a star-studded cast. Meryl Streep, James Corden, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Daniel Huttlestone, Tracey Ullman, Lilla Crawford and Johnny Depp each take on one of the classic fairy tale characters known so well from the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales.
The film is described as follows:
“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.
I have not stopped watching this trailer since it was released. Not only is the original musical just magical but to see the way that the filmmakers have brought it to life is astounding. From the costumes to the make-up, the scenery to the use of color there is nothing about this trailer that isn’t absolutely stunning. I continue to get the goosebumps and teary eyed each time I watch and can not wait till this film hits theatres, it is the perfect holiday gift. Make sure you check out the trailer below and let us know what you think of INTO THE WOODS.
