PG | 125 min | Thursday, December 25, 2014
Adapted from the late 1980s Broadway hit musical, Into the Woods is a Walt Disney Pictures production featuring a star-studded cast including Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Tracey Ullman and Johnny Depp. Into the Woods is directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago, Nine, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), and features original musical contributions from celebrated composer Stephen Sondheim, who along with screenwriter James Lapine co-wrote the Broadway production's stage script.
Familiar Grimm's Fairy Tales characters come to life with a contemporary spin in this musical fantasy which follows the tale of a childless couple seeking to reverse a curse placed upon them by a vengeful, misguided witch. In addition, many familiar fairytales are woven into the story, including Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel.
Film adaptations of Broadway productions have a checkered success rate on the big screen, but with an undeniably star-packed cast and proven production crew, Into the Woods has all the ingredients to click with contemporary audiences.
