Coming Attractions: Into The Woods
Finally there’s a preview for the heavily anticipated Into the Woods, a Disney film based on the Broadway musical by Stephen Sondheim.
Woods is directed by Oscar-winning Rob Marshall (Chicago) and is “set in an alternate world of various Grimm fairy tales… (it) intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales and follows them to explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests”.
If you’ve seen the trailer by now, or seen some stills from the film, you already know why I’m so excited for it.
Yep, that’s Meryl Streep as The Witch, heading an amazing cast that also includes Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Christine Baranski and Johnny Depp. Check out the teaser, which sadly doesn’t include any songs from the film.
I have to say, I’m a little underwhelmed by this clip. However, I’m gonna give ITW the benefit of the doubt and hope that the fantastic cast and solid director will make this one of the best films of the year. Here’s hoping.
