Here it is, the very first look at Disney’s upcoming — and much anticipated — film adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods. And the first image that they have released is pretty awesome. It’s of Meryl Streep as the witch, a woman “who wishes to reverse a curse so that her beauty may be restored.” The story weaves together Grimm tales and Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel.
Also starring in the film are Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, and Emily Blunt (who is currently pregnant with her fist child), with Rob Marshall directing.
So does that image of Streep as the witch make you want to run out to the theaters and see it right now? Sadly, you will have to wait; the film won’t be released until Dec. 25, 2014. But something tells me it will be worth the wait.
