Into The Woods Synopsis
Into the Woods is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.

I am beginning to think Disney's Into The Woods may kill me, it so enjoys toying with my heart. Just yesterday the reveal of the long-shrouded Wolf (brought to life by Johnny Depp) slaughtered my expectations for this movie musical translation of the Stephen Sondheim Broadway production. But now Disney has unveiled the gorgeous new Into the Woods featurette you see above, which gives us our best look yet at this sprawling world of fairy tales gone feral.

While Johnny Depp is in a bit of a slump right now, he can still be considered somewhat of a hot ticket. If it wasn't for two fourteen year old girls in the 1980's though, he might not have gotten the role that jumpstarted his career.

Recurring Ellen Guest Sophia Grace Brownlee Follows Johnny Depp Into The Woods Recurring Ellen Guest Sophia Grace Brownlee Follows Johnny Depp Into The Woods
Brownlee isn’t exactly a child actress, though the ten-year-old is no stranger to singing professionally. Not long ago, Brownlee was a little belter out of Essex England who enjoyed singing at home. But when Ellen DeGeneres caught wind of her and her cousin Rosie McClelland’s cover of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass”—complete with tiaras and tutus—the girls became a recurring facet of Ellen.

The 28-year-old actor has appeared in a handful of indie films, including Whit Stillman’s Damsels in Distress, Ramaa Mosley’s The Brass Teapot, and Zal Batmanglij’s political thriller The East. But his more relevant work might be his performances on Broadway, where he is currently starring in in the comedy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. He has earned a Tony nomination for the play. But can he sing? Yep.

Even though it looks like he’ll still be some kind of an anti-hero, it isn’t often we see Gyllenhaal as anything but the good guy. Actually, it’s in indie films like The Good Girl and Donnie Darko that the actor is allowed to embrace sketchy morals.

If I had to pick any actor from Les Miserables to play Jack in Into the Woods, it would've probably been Eddie Redmayne. He seems to have the right look for how I picture the character, and he has the perfect voice to belt out the ecstatic "Giants in the Sky." Alas, it isn't Redmayne who will be playing the role, though it is a Les Miserables actor in contention for the part.

“There are big, tall, terrible, awesome, scary, wonderful giants in the sky!” Those familiar with the lyrics to Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods soundtrack likely recognize those words.
