Into the Woods Video: Meryl Streep sings! She stars as a witch in the big-screen version of Into the Woods, an adaptation of the Broadway musical, and a new behind-the-scenes video includes snippets of her lovely singing voice, previously heard in 1990's Postcards From the Edge and 2008's Mama Mia.

Ahead of its release this holiday season, Disney has started stepping up the promotion for director Rob Marshall’s (Chicago) musical fantasy Into the Woods. Yesterday we got a batch of new images from the film, and now we have the first featurette which you can watch below…
Into the Woods is a modern twist on several of 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.

The promotional materials for Rob Marshall’s Into The Woods have so far not so much hidden as obscured the idea that the new film, adapted from Stephen Sondheim’s stage musical actually contains music itself. The trailers have yet to include any of the songs, but a new featurette lets the cast show off their pipes at last.Riffing on the stories of the Brothers Grimm, Into The Woods is about a childless baker who attempts to lift a family curse by journeying woods-ward to confront Meryl Streep's harpy. Along the way they encounter classic characters like Rapunzel, Cinderella, Jack (of beanstalk notoriety) and Red Riding Hood, played by newcomer Lilla Crawford.James Corden is the Baker, with Emily Blunt as his wife, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as Cinders' handsome prince, a furry Johnny Depp as the Big Bad Wolf, Mackenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel, Annette Crosbie as Grandma, »
There’s two months to go before the year is out, and we’ve still got a clutch of big titles scheduled for release within that timeframe. One of the most intriguing is definitely Rob Marshall’s Into The Woods. A live-action spin-off of Stephen Sondheim’s smash musical, it boasts a starry cast that includes some of Hollywood’s biggest hitters. With that in mind, Disney are gearing up the marketing machine for their holiday sing-a-long that’s guaranteed to win over the masses. Yesterday, we were finally given a proper look at Johnny Depp as The Wolf, and today we’ve got a new, full-length featurette.
Considering the flick is based on a musical, it’s difficult to sell that aspect to audiences in advance through posters and stills. Thanks to this latest behind the scenes video though, the dazzling visuals and sharp vocal talents of the cast are finally given a preview. »

I am beginning to think Disney's Into The Woods may kill me, it so enjoys toying with my heart. Just yesterday the reveal of the long-shrouded Wolf--brought to life by Johnny Depp, a zoot suit and a costume shop explosion--slaughtered my expectations for this movie musical translation of the Stephen Sondheim Broadway production. But now Disney has unveiled the gorgeous new Into the Woods featurette you see above, which gives us our best look yet at this sprawling world of fairy tales gone feral. There's a lot to take in here, both good and bad. So, let's delve deep Into The Woods' latest featurette for clues of what's to come! Some Singing! This might seem an obvious inclusion considering Into the Woods is a critically-heralded Broadway musical. But so far Disney has been frustrating in its withholding when it comes to actually showing its cast sing. A teaser released »
Into the Woods: Heading to theaters on December 25, Into the Woods is an ambitious stage-to-screen adaptation featuring a plethora of familiar storybook characters. New photos from the musical showcase Johnny Depp (as a wolf), Anna Kendrick (as Cinderella), Emily Blunt (as the Baker's Wife), and Meryl Streep (as a witch), all looking quite colorful. [EW.com] I.Q. 83: Charlie Kaufman, known for offbeat movies (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation), will next tackle a rewrite of I.Q. 83, based on a 1978 novel by Arthur Herzog. Steve Carell is set to star as the leader of a group of scientists who inadvertently unleash a virus that steadily lowers the intelligence of its victims. Kaufman is planning a satirical version of the straightforward novel...

My first journey to Austin, TX and the geek holy land of Fantastic Fest was a whirlwind. Book ended with exhausting, 14 hour drives, the trip as a whole was just mind blowing, inspiring, and so much fun. Bonding with new and old friends, finding some of your personal heroes in the crowd to say hello and snap a picture with, and being able to brag about seeing things before anyone in the rest of the world is but a fraction of the magic. There’s also the Alamo Drafthouse itself which was the newly renovated flagship South Lamar location. This place was like a dream come true for me! The sound system and picture quality in every theater was among the best I’ve seen outside of an IMAX, and every movie was extremely loud like they should always be. There was an amazing swarm of a wait staff to »

There must be a room in Johnny Depp‘s mansion devoted solely to the silly hats he’s worn in past films (do you think he ventures back in there to re-wear them now and again? Could Depp’s Willy Wonka top hat stack on top of his Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter top hat?). And if that’s the case, he’s got another prized piece of headwear to add to the collection: one crisp grey fedora, sporting two large wolf ears and a tuft of extraneous fur. That one’s courtesy of Into the Woods, the latest silly-hat feature Depp’s got in the works (as well as another Pirates of the Caribbean, another Alice in Wonderland and Mortedcai, which may only be going the silly mustache route for now, but where mustache goes, hat often follows). We’ve seen trailers and images for Into the Woods before, but »

Stephen Sondheim's sprawling Broadway fairytale "Into the Woods" gets the big-screen treatment this Christmas Day. Director Rob Marshall leaves the "Pirates of the Caribbean" to return to his musical "Nine" and "Chicago" roots, leading a top-drawer cast that includes Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine and Johnny Depp as various characters from Grimm stories. The musical was adapted by James Lapine, who co-wrote the original book to accompany Sondheim's music and lyrics. This new featurette from EW is basically a puff piece touting the efforts of Marshall, whose "Chicago" won Best Picture in 2003. But the video offers our first real sense of "Into the Woods" aside from the trailer--and includes plenty of singing from the witch (Streep) and Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), especially. (Toh! contributor Susan Wloszczyna breaks down the film's Oscar and box office prospects here.) »

Following yesterday's laughable reveal of Johnny Depp as The Wolf in Disney's adaptation of the Broadway musical Into the Woods, a new featurette has popped up that finally shows the melody side of the film that wasn't present in the first teaser trailer. The featurette lays out the story a little clearer as an ensemble of characters are all wishing for something, and Meryl Streep's elderly witch tells them to go into the woods to have their dreams come true. But of course, it's not that simple. Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, James Corden and more belt out a tune and we get to see Tracey Ullman in the film too. Watch! Here's the featurette for Rob Marshall's Into the Woods from YouTube: If you haven't yet, watch the teaser trailer for Disney's musical Into the Woods right here.

Yesterday, we got our first look at Johnny Depp in Into the Woods on four covers from Entertainment Weekly. Along with the covers, EW released some production photos from the film too. However, the bigger release is that of a new featurette about the film, which actually features a tiny bit of singing. The first trailer really kept that a secret by having no singing in it whatsoever. It always bothers me when studios are afraid of saying, "Yes, our film is a musical." I know there is an anti-musical bias out there, but duping people into seeing your musical will only make them angrier. Of course, we still do not get a lot of singing in the new video. We hear very brief snippets of the opening prologue, as well as Meryl Streep with a few lines from "Stay with Me". At least they are getting the word out there. »

We've already gotten a sneak peek at what the actors of "Into the Woods" will look like in their fairytale roles. Now, a new featurette gives audiences their first listen to stars like Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, and Anna Kendrick singing the musical's iconic tunes.
The clip is interspersed with interviews from stars like Blunt and Streep, who praise director Rob Marshall ("Chicago") and songwriter Stephen Sondheim, and discuss the timeless themes that the film portrays.
"The theme very much is, 'Careful what you wish for,'" says Blunt.
Marshall also explains why "Into the Woods" appeals to such a wide audience.
"It's not just a musical, it's not just a comedy, it's not just a drama -- it's all of those things, interwoven," the director notes.

The first trailer for the upcoming movie only provided a quick shot of The Wolf's paw.
Streep stars as The Witch, Kendrick plays Cinderella and Pine is her Prince. Blunt and Corden round out the cast as The Baker and his Wife.
Sondheim has said Disney executives have made some changes to his musical - removing some sexualisation and more adult moments - and he has written a new song »
Into The Woods is Disney's big budget musical opening this Christmas and the type of tentpole film designed specifically for Oscar consideration. Like Les Miserables before it, Into The Woods is based on a Broadway play that has had a long road to the big screen. With a huge cast of stars including Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt, and more, it was surprising that the first trailer didn't showcase any of the singing. I mean, it is a musical, right? A new »

Following yesterday's EW covers and new images, Disney has now released an extended featurette for Rob Marshall's adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's classic musical Into the Woods. The Disney production stars James Corden and Emily Blunt as a Baker and his wife who venture into the woods to confront the witch (Meryl Streep) responsible for putting a curse on the childless couple. Along the way, they run into a number of familiar fairy tale characters, all of whom have wishes to change their lives. While I'll admit that Johnny Depp's costume and makeup for the Big Bad Wolf continue to plunge the actor into self-parody, the rest of the movie looks surprisingly great. This featurette really sells not only the fantastic visuals, but also shows that this is a true ensemble piece. The featurette also provides the first time we're hearing the actors sing some of the songs, »

What’s that? You wish for even more inside dish from the most anticipated movie musical of the year? Wish: granted. Into the Woods—the sprawling fairy tale epic gracing this week’s cover of Entertainment Weekly—promises to be one of the holiday season’s most magical films, thanks to its top-notch design team (featuring the folks behind Chicago) and an A-list cast that includes Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, and James Corden. But the beloved 1987 Stephen Sondheim-James Lapine musical didn’t translate easily to the screen, which meant a creative challenge »
