Disney's much-hyped fantasy film Into the Woods won't be released for another two months, but the newly released featurette reminds us it's worth the wait. The initial Into the Woods trailer, released back in August, was enough to get us excited, but everybody wondered, where was the music?

Disney, all is forgiven...

What we know about Into the Woods:

  • It's Disney's very first adaptation of a Broadway musical: the Tony award-winning James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim production.
  • The plot combines several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, with characters taken from "Little Red Riding Hood," "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Rapunzel" and "Cinderella."
  • It has an incredible cast. James Corden and Emily Blunt play a childless couple who attempt to break a curse placed on them by a wicked witch (Meryl Streep). As they travel into the woods to find the objects required to break the spell and start a family, they come across various fairy tale characters, including Johnny Depp as the Wolf, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, MacKenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel, Chris Pine as Cinderella's prince and Tracey Ullman as Jack's mother.
  • It's packed with brilliant tunes. Meryl Streep sings the ballad "Stay with Me," James Corden and Emily Blunt perform the opening song, "I Wish," and Anna Kendrick will also be warbling in her role as Cinders.

  • The film is to be released on Christmas Day. What better movie to enjoy during the holiday season?

Will 23 Jump Street be as good as these other trilogies?
