We first reported on this project in April, when Meryl Streep signed on to play a woman chasing her dreams of being a rock star, which resulted in losing her family. Now this grocery store clerk gets one final shot at fulfilling her rock and roll destiny. Sebastian Stan is playing the woman's estranged son, joining a cast that also includes Kevin Kline and Rick Springfield.
If I’m honest, I don’t always ‘get’ musicals and although I understand their place – I get easily distracted if they’re on. However, Into The Woods is definitely an exception and I’ve never been as excited to see something really impressive up on the big screen, despite initial reservations. What’s turned my doubt into positive thoughts is the whole cast and team putting Sondheim’s superb fantasy together.
It’s been confirmed there will changes from the stage version into the final film but these have been written by Sondheim himself. There’s a wonderful looking design going on and the cast all look like they fit the role, that includes perfect casting for Johnny Depp as the Wolf and James Corden as the Baker. Alongside those two, is a top A-List cast that includes Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, and Chris Pine.

Disney’s Princesses are some of the most beloved cartoon figures in history, but even they have come under scrutiny as Hollywood pushes for more diversity in their films. Disney’s latest princess will be the first of Pacific Islander descent (unless you count Lilo of Lilo & Stitch as a princess). The CG-animated film is Moana, the story of a born navigator who travels through ancient Oceania along with a demi-God pal named Maui in order to find a secret island.
Deadline reported Monday that the film would be aiming for a November 2016 release date and would be directed by Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog). In the meantime, we’ll be awaiting Pixar’s Inside Out and Finding Dory, both anticipated for 2015. And Deadline reported back in 2013 several other slots for two other Disney and Pixar films in both March and »

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.

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. »

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.) »

Anna Kendrick and Meryl Streep in particular are highlighted, and while thanks to "Pitch Perfect" and the upcoming "The Last Five Years" we know the former can belt out a number, the latter Oscar winning actress shows that she's been practicing as well. The promo also features a nice bit of footage, finding director Rob Marshall »
