Walt Disney Studios has just released two new clips from their upcoming Broadway adaptation, Into the Woods. The first features Meryl Streep’s Witch explaining to James Corden and Emily Blunt’s Baker and Baker’s Wife the objects of power she’ll need to break a spell that has left the pair childless. In the second, the couple have come across one of the objects — a milky white cow — and now have to persuade Daniel Huttlestone’s Jack to part with it in exchange for some magic beans. Check both clips out in the players below!
Also starring Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, Lilla Crawford, 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, the musical adaptation offers 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.
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 musical stage production by legendary eight-time Tony, Grammy and Oscar-winning composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim and Tony winner James Lapine, who also wrote the screenplay. Into the Woods is produced by John DeLuca, Marshall, “Wicked” producer Marc Platt and Callum McDougall.
Into the Woods arrives in theaters December 25.
