The first teaser trailer for the upcoming we get first looks at some major characters in this movie. A quick teaser was released before but this is really a first look at some footage from the movie. No musical portion was shown in the trailer but we can expect that it would be in the full length trailer.
Into the Woods will include stories from Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Jack and the Beanstalk. These stories will have made wishes in the woods with costly effects. It’s based on the musical by Stephen Sondheim’s show from 1987. The movie is going to be more based on the Brothers Grimm version of these stories, but with Disney releasing it, it should remain a family friendly kind of movie.
The movie is going to center around the Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) who make a wish in the woods and it forces them to cross paths with a witch (Meryl Streep). And of course, things from there snowball into more and more problems for people in the story.
This movie seems to be continuing the trend that Disney is doing with their old fairy tale stories. They are revamping them in different ways and a lot more interesting ways. It’s not surprising considering the fact that Once Upon a Time on ABC is one of the networks highest rated shows and the anticipation from their live-action movies could be part of the reason why. Another reason could be that the remake of Les Miserable did so well and even earned a lot of attention from the Academy.
Into the Woods stars Anna Kendrick, Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, and James Corden and is set to come out this Christmas.
