Due for release in a mere two days time, Rob Marshall’s Into The Woods is on the fast track to becoming Christmas Day’s biggest box office draw. For those who don’t fancy languishing in front of the TV after over-indulging, this glittery spectacle ought to satisfy the entire family’s festive cravings.
So far, the majority of the trailers and clips have centred around the showier, headlining stars of the movie. Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick et al. have all been in the spotlight, demonstrating their singing abilities. Now, we can get a closer look at the slew of lesser-known names in a series of new clips Disney has posted.
First up is Daniel Huttlestone, who in the role of Jack, sings out his dismay in the ‘five pounds’ segment along with Tracy Ullman as his mother. Taking on the role of Little Red Riding Hood, Lilla Crawford’s phenomenal vocal range is on display in her clip which finds the young lass en route to her Grandmother’s house. Lastly, rounding out the three previews is a brilliant moment between Kendrick’s Cinderella and her Charming Prince, Chris Pine. If these snippets are any indication, we should be in for a real treat on Christmas Day.
Co-starring James Corden, Lucy Punch, Christine Baranski, Tammy Blanchard, Billy Magnussen, Tracey Ullman, Mackenzie Mauzy and Johnny Depp, Into The Woods opens in theaters on December 25th.
“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 (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.
