With Disney going into full gear with the marketing for its hopeful Christmas blockbuster and potential Oscar nominee Into the Woods, we have 10 gorgeous new character posters that play with the eye just a bit as backgrounds move. With the final trailer due tomorrow, the debut of the Stephen Sondheim/James Lapine musical as a feature film is both highly anticipated and highly risky. The Tony-winning musical debuted in 1986 and takes a handful of classic Grimm’s fairy tale characters (including Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella) and merges them into one story.
Directed by Rob Marshall (the Oscar-winning Chicago), the film stars 3-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep as The Witch, James Corden as The Baker, Emily Blunt as The Baker’s Wife, Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Oscar nominee Johnny Depp as The Wolf, Chris Pine as The Prince, Billy Magnussen as The Other Prince, Mackenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel, Lilla Crawford as Little Red and Daniel Huttlestone as Jack. It opens Christmas Day.
