INTO THE WOODS Teaser Drops but Where's the Music?

Into The Woods is another amazing musical by Stephen Sondheim. He's the mastermind behind Sweeney Todd and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. His musicals are always full of interesting characters and intricate music. SWEENEY TODD was adapted into a film in 2007 with moderate success.

Now his next musical to be adapted is INTO THE WOODS. This musical smashes classic fairy tale characters (Cinderella, The Baker, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk) into the ultimate story. There's an evil witch who looks to teach various characters a lesson or two.

Check out the trailer after the break!

 I swear it's a musical. I've seen it many times. Maybe they're trying to get interest before scaring people off that it's a musical. The one worry I have is the tone. The musical is initially light hearted but turns dark during the second act, which makes the musical even more fantastic. And I'm calling it right now, James Cordon is going to steal the film.

   INTO THE WOODS will be released December 25th, 2014, is directed by Rob Marshall, and stars Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, James Cordon, Chris Pine, and Johnny Depp.
