Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Johnny Depp, and Anna Kendrick star in the fantasy adventure musical Into the Woods, based on Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning Broadway musical. See the movie photo, cast, plot summary and release date for ‘Into the Woods’ below. The film centers on a baker (Corden) and his wife’s (Blunt) quest to break a witch’s (Streep) curse in order to start a family. Along the way, they encounter several well-known fairy tale characters, and together they learn what happens after “happily ever after.”
INTO THE WOODS is 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. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.
