It seems like Disney announced it’s production of Into the Woods so long ago, but I really couldn’t wait for the Blu-Ray release!
The truth is, I can consume every fact, story and bit of trivia from so many musicals. The fact that Into the Woods is a Disney-made Sondheim musical means that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on my own copy to take in all the extras on the Into the Woods Blu-Ray and digital HD!
About Disney’s Into the Woods:
From the director of “Chicago” and the producer of “Wicked” comes a modern twist on the beloved fairy tales you thought you knew.
Academy Award®-Winning actress Meryl Streep (Best Actress, The Iron Lady), leads an all-star cast in this enchanted adventure about daring to venture Into The Woods.
Iconic characters, such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel, find their fates intertwined with a humble baker and his wife, whose longing to have a child sends them on a quest to reverse a witch’s (Streep) curse.
With an all-star cast, this spellbinding adventure is everything you could ever wish for!
The story and the music in Into the Woods are enough to entertain nearly anyone, but the cast and production team…you have to see everyone contributing to the magic of this movie:
- Meryl Streep as the Witch (The Devil Wears Prada, August: Osage County)
- Johnny Depp as the Wolf (The Lone Ranger, Sweeney Todd)

I love seeing this concept art. I always find it interesting to see what the ideas were that lead to the actual characters or costumes in a movie.
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
I totally missed this when it was in the theater, so now is my chance to see it. I can’t wait.
This sounds like a very interesting story. I love modern takes on fairytales and the cast seems amazing. The concept art also seems quite cool.
I absolutely love Anna Kendrick! It must be amazing to be a set designer or a costume maker. Sewing (and the computer rendering/concept before) is such a skilled art and dressing some of these celebrities would make it an even better job!
lisa @bitesforbabies says
I love Anna Kendrick…and I am so excited to see this movie! There are a ton of great actors in it!
Fi Ní Neachtáin says

Badet Siazon (@badudets) says

I’d like to see this movie. I’d have preferred to see it on the big screen, it looks perfect for that type of viewing! A DVD will be the second best thing though. 🙂
