This movie looks like it’s going to be awesome. You’ve got the pedigree of Steven Sondheim and James Lapine matched with an intriguing cast that features Meryl Streep in the spotlight, and in our first look at Into the Woods, she’s looking a bit like the witch from Big Fish minus the eyepatch.

The character is desperate to regain her youth and beauty, so she makes a bargain with a cursed baker (James Corden) to un-hex him if he brings her a bunch of bizarre items. Along the way, he runs into all sorts of fairy tale characters — Jack with his magic beans, Cinderella and Rapunzel to name just a few.

It’s a really fun musical with a dark sense of humor, and we’ll get to see if Rob Marshall and company can bring its spirit from the stage to the screen in December 2014.
