into the woods meryl streepDisney

It's not even October, but this first look at "Into the Woods" is making us dream of Halloween.

Meryl Streep appears as The Witch in this adaptation of the popular Broadway musical, which features music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. This creepy crone appears throughout the story to impart lessons to famous characters from fairy tales like Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack (of Jack and the Beanstalk infamy), and Little Red Riding Hood. Streep is definitely channeling some Helena Bonham-Carter gothy weirdness for her witch look -- not that we're complaining.

"Into the Woods" started shooting earlier in September, and initial photos of the actors in costume for Cinderella's wedding are already online. Anna Kendrick stars as Cinderella, with Chris Pine as her prince. Johnny Depp is naturally the Wolf who stalks Little Red Riding Hood, played by Broadway alum Lilla Crawford. James Corden and Emily Blunt appear as the Baker and the Baker's Wife in a wraparound story that involves the Witch and a curse.

Fans will venture "Into the Woods" on December 25, 2014, courtesy of Disney.
