It’s got a huge cast: Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski and Johnny Depp. It’s a musical based on a Stephen Sondheim play and it’s a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales. Yep, the first teaser trailer for Rob Marshall’s “Into The Woods” is here.
Yesterday, new photos from the film surfaced, but today we get a larger taste of this dark fairy tale that intertwines the plots of a few classic fables 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 & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.
“Into The Woods” opens in theaters December 25, 2014. Watch the trailer below.
