The story follows various Grimm fairy tale characters and from the trailer it looks like it could be pretty good. The cast is great, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp and a string of others and the design of the film looks great.
When the film was announced fans of the musical were excited but then it emerged that director Rob Marshall would be changing certain aspects of the original story, the darker aspects. This being a Disney release the fans fears of it being watered down were understandable. Marshall spoke to Entertainment Weekly and said “Steve’s been part of every single step of this movie. And the truth is, we’ve been incredibly faithful to the original.”
It’ll be interesting to see what certificate the film receives. Are you excited about Into the Woods or are musicals just not your thing?
