The Walt Disney Studios is beckoning us to take a walk with them, our destination: Into the Woods. At least, that’s how it feels, with the release of a new poster for the upcoming film, starring Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, and Johnny Depp. Meryl takes center stage in this new image, nailing her role as the witch at the heart of this mysterious fairy tale film.

Take a look at the poster and the film’s official description, below:


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 (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. Rob Marshall, the talented filmmaker behind the Academy Award-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” helms the film, which is based on the Tony-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics – including an all-new song for the big-screen adaptation. Produced by Marshall, John DeLuca, “Wicked” producer Marc Platt and Callum McDougall, Into the Woods hits theaters December 25, 2014.

One thought on “Do You Dare Walk the Path Into the Woods?”
  1. I’m excited that one of my favorite books and Broadway plays is being made into a Disney movie. However, some of the changes insisted upon by Disney are going to change the original plot and I fear it will ruin the story. I’m hoping Disney, in all its magic, does this great tale justice. I’ll be first in line on opening day!
