'Into the Woods' Release Date 2014 Starring Anna Kendrick, Johnny Deep, Chris Pine & Meryl Streep, Watch New Featurette Trailer (VIDEO)
Disney's highly anticipated new movie Into the Woods from Stephen Sondheim has released a new featureette trailer, which you can watch above.
The first trailer released did not have any music, but with this featurette, we get to finally hear some signing. Meryl Streep (the witch) sings "Stay with Me" to Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy). Also shown is the song "I Wish" sung by Emily Blunt and James Corden (the baker and baker's wife).
The tales include Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel. To bring this plot and cast alive is a star-studded cast including Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt, Meryl Streep, and Johnny Depp in the mix.
Into the Woods was originally a musical written by Stephen Sondheim (also known for his work Sweeney Todd, and writing the lyrics for West Side Story), is a tale about tales; classic fairy tales to be exact. Many have been waiting years for the film adaptation of Into the Woods and now it is officially coming.
Some are wary that the movie will be a let down from the original musical and that Disney will take out some of the musical's elements to create a less challenging and more widely appealing story. However, Sondheim, who is widely regarded in the musical world released a statement saying, "When the conversation with the teachers occurred, I had not yet seen a full rough cut of the movie. Coincidentally, I saw it immediately after leaving the meeting and, having now seen it a couple of times, I can happily report that it is not only a faithful adaptation of the show, it is a first-rate movie."
Into the Woods is set to release to theaters on Christmas Day 2014.
