“Johnny, what big ears you have!”
“All the better to hear with, my child.”

Based on the Tony Award–winning Broadway musical of the same name written by Lapine and Stephen Sondheim, “Into the Woods” marks Disney’s first adaptation of a Broadway musical to feature length film.

In Disney’s “Into the Woods” A witch played by Streep devises a devious plot to teach the varied fairy tale characters, including Little Red Hood, Cinderella, Jack who hails from the BeanStalk and Rapunzel.

“Into the Woods” is a fantasy comedy designed for the viewing pleasure of the whole family with its harmless PG rating.

Rob Marshall (“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”) takes on directing and reunites with Depp just in time for viewers to unwrap this unique broadway musical adaptation on December 25.

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
