The next Disney live-action movie, ‘Into the Woods’ began production this week and we have our first view of the Witch herself, played by the incomparable Meryl Streep. The role of the Witch originated with Bernadette Peters on Broadway in 1987.
Directed by Rob Marshall, the storyline of the flim involves the Witch teaching important lessons to fairytale characters including Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy), and Jack + the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone). Other noteworthy characters include Johnny Depp as The Wolf, Chris Pine as Cinderella’s Prince, and Emily Blunt as The Bakers Wife.
But….wait……what?!?! No Helena Bonham Carter? The horror!! 😉
