For Johnny Depp fans, Christmas can’t come soon enough! ‘Into the Woods’, one of the most highly-awaited films of the year is just months away from its big screen debut.

Based on a Broadway musical of the same name, the film is set in a world of various grim fairytales and is centered on a childless couple that has a curse placed upon them by a spiteful witch — played by none other than Oscar-winner Meryl Streep. The tales are adapted from ‘The Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘Rapunzel’, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and a few other timeless classics.

An American musical fantasy produced by Walt Disney Pictures, the movie’s iconic all-star cast includes Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine and James Corden (to name a few).

The story revolves around a baker and his wife, played by James Corden and Emily Blunt respectively, and how they embark on a journey to remove a curse placed upon them encountering various storybook characters along the way. From the Big Bad Wolf played by Johnny Depp to Jack from ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, played by Daniel Huttlestone.  The film was shot mainly in the United Kingdom and stars both British and American actors.

The fantasy musical eventually becomes a deep tale about responsibility, the legacy one leaves their kin, and the old idiom ‘be careful what you wish for.’

Directed by Rob Marshall, the feature film is slated to make its silver screen debut December 24th, 2014.
