Trivia

According to Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine was extremely shy about his singing voice and noted that he would hold back during rehearsals. She only heard his actual singing voice when she was eating lunch in the recording studio. She was in a room by herself and she heard a "beautiful, crooning voice" coming from the hallway, but she assumed that it was a singer from a different project since multiple records were being recorded in the studio. She then noticed that the singing wasn't stopping, so she poked her head out to see who it was. To her surprise, she discovered that it was Pine, who didn't know that there was anybody else there.

I hate musicals after seeing this
31 December 2014 | by (Madison, WI) – See all my reviews

I didn't know this was a musical. I just saw the Disney logo and the movie poster looked interesting so decided to give it a shot ... Wow. The first 20 mins they sing the same melody over and over. I guess I don't like musicals, so I'm trying to be fair, but this movie's still awful. I'd have a different opinion if the lyrics were clever or funny. But they're not. They're just boring, 99% of the time pointing out the obvious, over and over. Worse, the plot is just a rehash of well known fairy tales. Nothing fresh or original until the toward the end, which is actually the worst part of the movie. Really. It was like the writer just pulled random events from a hat and decided to use them for a plot. And worst of all, the few characters that are interesting are killed off, leaving weak secondary characters that the viewer doesn't care about, but that doesn't stop them from singing unfortunately.
