Three things made me decide to feature INTO THE WOODS for Fairy Tale Fortnight:
1) My friend was cast in a local production of INTO THE WOODS, and I went to see her perform last night. Consider me inspired! It's been a while since I've seen or listened to the show, and I felt myself falling right back in love!
writing all-new songs for the movie. New Sondheim songs? I'm in!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I seriously cannot WAIT for this movie.
(Although it is ironic that Disney's the one developing this since INTO THE WOODS features the original Brothers Grimm tales, which are more violent in nature than their animated Disney counterparts, not to mention the way Happily Ever After isn't so happy after all.)
cast as the Witch.
(I wonder if either of these talented women will be considered for the official movie, since they've both worked with Disney before! Amy Adams in particular is a Disney Darling, having most recently been featured in THE MUPPETS.)
It's available for purchase, and you might even be able to rent it on Netflix!
The Original Cast Recording is available on CD and iTunes, as is a more recent Revival Recording with all-new performers.
