‘Into the Woods’ Clip Features Little Red Riding Hood

‘Into the Woods’ Clip Features Little Red Riding Hood

Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford) takes as many baked goods as she can literally get her hands on in a new scene from Disney's Into the Woods. This scene likely takes place before last week's clip, where the Witch (Meryl Streep) reveals that one of the items The Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) need to obtain is a "cape as red as blood," which naturally belongs to Little Red Riding Hood. This item is one of five needed in order for The Witch to reverse the curse placed on the young couple.

Lilla Crawford is seen singing her version of "To Grandmother's House," while scooping up several items, much to the chagrin of The Baker, who thinks she's nothing but a thief. The Baker's wife, on the other hand, is more than happy to oblige this young girl, before she makes her way through the woods to grandmother's house. It's worth noting that, while we've seen Lilla Crawford's Little Red Riding hood in some of the previously-released footage, we still haven't seen much of Johnny Depp's Big Bad Wolf, who will surely cross paths with the young girl on her journey.

‘Into the Woods’ Clip: Meryl Streep Reverses the Curse

Disney has released a new scene from Into the Woods that puts yesterday's clip into context. The previous video showed The Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) trading young Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) some "magic beans" for his cow. Today's scene shows Meryl Streep's The Witch revealing to this couple that four things need to be obtained in order for her to create a potion that will "reverse the curse." The first item is the "cow as white as milk," followed by the "cape as red as blood," "the hair as yellow as corn" and "the slipper as pure as gold." The cow naturally belongs to Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk, with the cape surely a reference to Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), the hair belonging to Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy) and the glass slipper of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick).
