Meryl Streep Gets Witchy In First Official Image From Disney Musical 'Into The Woods'

Frankly, it should be criminal how talented Meryl Streep is, and certainly, there will never be another one like her. The three-time Oscar winner has a Wikipedia page dedicated to her various nominations and honors, and from drama to comedy to musicals, she’s not only done it all, she’s knocked it out the park more often than not. So next her on list of things to do? Play a witch in a Disney musical.

The first official look from Rob Marshall‘s “Into The Woods” has landed, and once again Streep has transformed into a witch who wishes to reverse a curse so that her beauty may be restored. Co-starring Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, Lilla Crawford, Daniel Huttlestone, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, MacKenzie Mauzy, Billy Magnussen, Tammy Blanchard, Lucy Punch, Richard Glover, Frances de la Tour, Simon Russell Beale, Joanna Riding and Annette Crosbie (phew!), the film is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests.

Based on a hit Broadway show, “Into The Woods” will belt it out on Christmas Day 2014.
