â€œInto the Woodsâ€ 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 charactersâ€™ 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 and 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 AwardÂ®-winning musical â€œChicagoâ€ and Disneyâ€™s â€œPirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,â€ directs the film, which is based on the TonyÂ®-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics. Produced by John DeLuca, Marshall, â€œWickedâ€ producer Marc Platt and Callum McDougall, â€œInto the Woodsâ€ will be released in theaters December 25, 2014.
