Walt Disney Pictures has released a first look at Meryl Streep as the Witch in Into the Woods.

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, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.

The film also co-stars Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, Lilla Crawford, Daniel Huttlestone, and Tracey Ullman.

Into the Woods is set to be released in theaters on December 25, 2014 and is being directed by Rob Marshall from a screenplay written by James Lapine.

    Dang she looks awesome! I can’t wait for this flick. I’ll see anything with Anna Kendrick anyway. Great cast, and the story sounds interesting.

    you should watch the original broadway show, you’ll be glad you did. you can stream it on netflix. stephen sondheim is a friggin genius. i usually prefer non-musicals when it comes to theater just because there’s a lot of fluff and glib crap out there. sondheim at his worst never approaches that, though. i really wish some really creative collaborators could figure out a way to bring assassins to the big screen. enjoyed the hell out of sweeney todd, though, and tim burton does next to nothing for me these days.

    I will check it out! Thanks!

    Totally agreed on Sondheim! He really is a genius. I love a good musical anyway, and his are some of the best, by far. I loved Sweeney Todd the stage musical, but I didn’t love the movie. I didn’t hate it; it was just too much Tim Burton for me. He has lost his touch; I used to love his flicks.

    I never saw Assassins, but I just read about it, and now I would like them to adapt it as well. Maybe someday! :D
