After a bit of back and forth by Stephen Sondheim over the changes made to his musical “Into The Woods” for Disney‘s big screen, star-studded version, he’s ultimately behind the “first-rate” production, and now the studio can push on with promoting the film. And today they’ve dropped a handful of new images to take you into the alternate fairy tale world you’ll experience later this year.
Featuring Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, Tracey Ullman, Lucy Punch and many, many more, “Into The Woods” turns the stories you thought you knew right upside down. The characters—The Wolf, Cinderella, Jack, Rapunzel, and more—are not quite wholesome, and the reconfigured tales are a bit darker and more twisted (but on this side of being family friendly we’d wager). Still, it’s imaginative source material and it gives director Rob Marshall a lot to play with.
“Into The Woods” arrives on Christmas Day.
