If proof were needed that the folks over at the Magic Kingdom will preserve their carefully crafted and manufactured brand of purity and innocence at any cost, we got it from Stephen Sondheim in a recent issue of The New Yorker. Discussing the forthcoming adaptation of his musical Into The Woods, he was less than reserved in detailing the process of sanitization that his original work appears to have been subjected to.

A rich cocktail of the most twisted parts of the darkest fairy tales, Into The Woods was certainly a surprising choice for Disney. This adaptation arrives with Rob Marshall (Chicago) at the helm, armed with a screenplay by James Lapine. The impressive all-star cast includes Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine and Meryl Streep, among others. Stephen Sondheim’s original source material, however, features infidelity, suggestive lyrics and a lecherous wolf leering at a young girl »
