Watch: First Teaser Trailer for Disney's New Musical 'Into the Woods'
Be careful what you wish for! Finally! Disney has debuted the first teaser trailer for Rob Marshall's new musical Into the Woods, based on the Broadway show of the same name about all of the various Disney fairytales being twisted into on big, dark musical story. Meryl Streep stars as "The Witch", but this teaser is all about introducing the rest of the cast: Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, and Johnny Depp, who they tease but don't really show. They're building this up to be quite the spectacle come Christmas-time, but for now we get a quick tease (without any singing featured as of yet) of the world and characters we'll be spending time with. How does it look?
