We have some first look images and a teaser trailer for Disney’s “Into the Woods” that is set to arrive in theaters on December 25, 2014!
This new film from Disney is a modern day twist on some of the well loved Brothers Grimm fairy tales. There are intertwining plots of a few chosen stories. “Into the Woods” will explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests in a fun, humorous and heartfelt way. This musical will showcase the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy) that will be all combined together by an original story that involves a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt) who hope to begin a family. Plus, their connection with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has cursed them.
Acclaimed filmmaker, Rob Marshall, will direct.
