INTO THE WOODS!! Opens December 25th!

Ever since I saw "Into the Woods" live on stage, I have wanted it to become a movie. Now it has!! I am so super duper excited about this movie. It is really a great story about what happens to all the fairytale characters we know and love. It also has great music!!

Because hubby works in the theatre, I have become a total theatre geek! And this brings both theatre and movies together! WOO! Plus, it is directed by Rob Marshall, who I adore! And who made my favorite musical, Chicago, into a great movie!

“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.

Rob Marshall, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the Academy Award®-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” directs the film, which is based on the Tony®-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics. Produced by Marshall, John DeLuca, “Wicked” producer Marc Platt and Callum McDougall, “Into the Woods” will be released in theaters Dec. 25, 2014.

  1. It saddens me just how much I have missed over the last couple of years during an illness. I haven't heard of this until now, but it sounds like it would have been a wonderful theater production! I hope the move lives up to that!

  2. Looks fun and entertaining. Will be great if in 3D

  3. I saw the trailer to this movie last night, and I thought it was a terrific movie to go see. I like these types of movies and it looks exciting!

  4. This movie sounds really good. I don't get out to see movies so I will have to wait until it comes out on dvd.

  5. Looks like this will be an interesting take on fairy tales! I enjoyed Marshall's Chicago as well, so this one sounds extremely promising! And I'm sure Meryl Streep will be giving her best as usual! Thanks for the trailer!

  6. This combination of Grimm' s fairy tales looks fascinating.

  7. Sounds like experiencing it in the theater must have been fantastic! No live theater near where I live, but we do have a 'movie house', so I will be anxious to have the opportunity to see it!
