Movie comes out on Christmas Day. Looks good .
We watched it yesterday (the trailer). Into the Woods is one of my favorite plays. I hope it's good!! DH is afraid that it will be too dark because "act one is supposed to be whimsical". He's into theater Pretty sure we will be there during vacation week no matter.
The trailer was great!
I saw the original Broadway production, and have watched the video countless times since. It IS my favorite musical of all times. I am really looking forward to this movie, but with a bit of impending dread. Sweeney Todd, also one of my all-time favorites (also by Sondheim) was destroyed during it's Hollywood treatment. The only hope I have for this is that James Lapine (the original author) wrote the screenplay.
Great news about James Lapine. I hadn't noticed that. I am also heartened by the fact that it's the produced by the same producers who did Wicked. Let's hope they don't disappoint. I'll be honest, my bar was set pretty low so I already am happy they kept it a musical
