For the first time ever, we'll see Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, and James Corden act and sing together on screen. With Rob Marshall at the helm, Into The Woods is the first time Disney is adapting a Broadway musical for the silver screen. Stephen Sondheim wrote the music and James Lapine penned the book.

The story centres on an original story about a childless baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt). Well-known fairy tales like Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, and Little Red Riding Hood are weaved into the main storyline. As every character explores the consequences of getting what they wish for, lessons are learnt, losses are mourned, and new beginnings arise.

The already intriguing trailer has us making a wish of our own: for the Into The Woods' Christmas Day release date to come a little faster, please.
