Into the Woods

Not only did the first teaser trailer for Disney's adaptation of Into the Woods hold back any of the musical elements of the film, but it also didn't completely show us what Johnny Depp looks like as The Wolf in the fairytale fantasy. But this week, Entertainment Weekly has plastered the Disney film all over various covers of the latest edition of their magazine, and we finally get to see Depp in full wardrobe. For better or worse (we're going with the latter) he doesn't look like a wolf, but rather just appears to be Johnny Depp with weird facial hair and a big hairy suit. I have a feeling that's not going to work very well at all. Look below!

Here's Entertainment Weekly's covers showing off the cast of Into the Woods:

If you haven't yet, watch the teaser trailer for Disney's musical Into the Woods right here.

Into the Woods is directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago, Nine, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) based on the hit Broadway musical by Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine that mashes-up classic fairy tales and revolves around a baker and his wife, to be played by James Corden and Emily Blunt. They attempt to lift a family curse by journeying into the woods to confront The Witch (Meryl Streep) who put the spell on them. Along their journey they meet classic characters including Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy), Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) and her Prince (Chris Pine), Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) and Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford) with Johnny Depp as the Big Bad Wolf. Disney sends the film to theaters on December 25th.

The way Johnny Depp looks, reminds me of the Weasels from the Terry Jones Wind in the Willow movie

Depp looks bad, but in my opinion Chris Pine looks worse! This looks to be a high concept train wreck.

Neither look bad.

vhjvhghcffgvjhjbvjdggfxv this is the sound of me vomiting over the negativity on a movie that nobody saw yet.

in this case i will judge a book by its cover. thank god i didn't start to watch movies today, i know i think or two and i can judge when a movie is gonna be bad by a trailer and sometimes the posters.. Hope you enjoy it though.. morover dont forget that everything is in the eye of the beholder

Nick D. on Oct 22, 2014


Of course you can judge a book by it's cover. That's why there's cover art.

This isn't judging a movie by its name only...this is judging a movie by actual character design, which looks laughably horrible so far. that's why teaser like these are even released - to be judged.

That's how Depp looks before he fully transforms into The Big Bad Wolf.

Willy Billy on Oct 22, 2014


Of course he wears a hat.

Terry Craig on Oct 22, 2014


I hate that the entire cast is dressed in medieval/fantasy costuming and Depp is in a zoot suit.

Astroboy3000 on Oct 22, 2014


Man....looking worse every day. They took a cool musical and cast it terribly. So sad...

ff on Oct 22, 2014


Well those all look terrible.

Brian Sleider on Oct 22, 2014


I've been wrong before, but to me this looks like a Red box night when nothing else is on.

mooreworthy on Oct 22, 2014


Dis wolf is terrible.

DAVIDPD on Oct 22, 2014


The entertainment weekly magazine covers will always and forever look awesome.

Chelsea on Oct 22, 2014


I will say, all of the photos i've seen from this look terrible. I think it might just be the costume designs/make-up that just make it look like an ad for holloween costumes at Party City. But after seeing the trailer, I was pleasantly surprised. Excited to see how it turns out, but these images need some serious work.
