A big new Into the Woods trailer has been released by Disney, providing quite a lot of footage from their upcoming musical. We’ve said before that we’re approaching this one with caution, not a hundred-percent convinced with the snippets we’ve been given, but this extended look does provide some confidence in an entertaining outing. The production certainly looks grand and the cast look to be putting their all into the singing, so fingers crossed we’ve had no reason to be wary. Although, we’d like to get a film with Meryl Streep in which she doesn’t go around chewing the scenery. Check out the new Into the Woods trailer below.
Into the Woods stars Anna Kendrick, Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, James Corden, Lucy Punch, Lilla Crawford, Mackenzie Mauzy, Daniel Huttlestone, Tracey Ullman, and Christine Baranski.
Official synopsis for Into the Woods:
Into the Woods is a modern twist on 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, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.
