Into the Woods has the chance of garnering quite a few Oscar nominations, though it is a sure lock for production design. A new featurette explores the Disney musical, as it makes its journey from Broadway to the big screen. And through interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, we get to learn how a real forest was incorporated into the look and feel of this traditional stage play.
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.
Watch as director Rob Marshall joins his cast and crew to discuss the production design behind this thrilling fantasy for the whole family. Then be sure to discover it on the big screen this weekend, as Into the Woods continues its run in a theater near you!
