Disney has released hi-res versions of previously released Into the Woods images along with a couple new stills as well. The Disney production stars James Corden (Begin Again) 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 including Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), her Prince (Chris Pine), Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy), and the Wolf (Johnny Depp). I really liked the extended featurette we saw last week, and I hope we'll get a new trailer soon that will give us an even better idea of what to expect from director Rob Marshall's take on Stephen Sondheim's terrific musical. Hit the jump to check out the Into the Woods images. The film opens December 25th, »

One wedding celebration is not enough for George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin. On Saturday, the newlyweds made their way to a second party in Buckinghamshire in England just weeks after tying the knot in Italy. While their lavish wedding included George's Hollywood pals - Matt Damon, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, and Cindy Crawford were among the stars in attendance - Saturday's party reportedly catered to more than 200 of the couple's UK friends and Amal's loved ones from Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain. According to the official invitation, Amal's parents, Baria and Ramzi Alamuddin, threw the bash at the historic Danesfield House. The name might undersell the spot's ambience, as the award-winning venue's website says the hotel sits "amidst 65 acres of formal gardens with outstanding views over the River Thames and to the Chiltern Hills beyond." The large celebration comes after an exciting month for the newlyweds, during which George and »
Disney has released an extended featurette for “Into the Woods” that not only offers a new look at the iconic characters, but a sneak preview of the iconic music.
Meryl Streep’s Witch and Anna Kendrick’s Cinderella sing in the video, which also includes interviews with director Rob Marshall and stars Streep, Johnny Depp, who plays The Wolf, and Emily Blunt, who’s The Baker’s Wife.
“It’s not just a musical, it’s not just a comedy, it’s not just a drama,” Marshall says. “It’s all of those things interwoven.”
Marshall also praises composer Stephen Sondheim (“the greatest living composer we have”), who wrote the music and lyrics for the 1987 dark musical reimagining of classic fairy tales.

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.

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, »
Into the Woods has been everywhere this week. It's on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, fantastical new pictures came out, and now there's a featurette with all the actors.

There are interviews with Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt, and more, but the real highlight is getting to hear them sing. There's a bit of Anna Kendrick singing with other characters, but you have to hear Streep putting her spin on "Stay With Me." Just try not to fall in love too fast; the movie doesn't come out until Christmas Day! »

We got out first look at Johnny Depp as The Wolf yesterday, along with a few other EW magazine covers. There's another one of Depp today in a collection of stills from the movie that gives us a different look at several of the other characters that are featured in the story.

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.) »

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!
