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!
