First movie stills from Disney's "Into the Woods".

As many of you know, Disney's string of fairy tale reimaginings is set to continue with an adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's musical Into the Woods.  There was some controversy recently about supposed changes made to the story in order to make it more family-friendly.  These supposed changes were also supposedly refuted by Sondheim who had mentioned their possible existence in passing previously.

Anyways, over at the website Den of Geek, they apparently have the first stills from the movie up.  You can see them by clicking HERE.  There's apparently also a trailer out there somewhere.  I tried to access it on Den of Geek's page, but was informed that the video was "private" and was not allowed to see it.  I'll keep looking, though.

Update: I found the trailer: Into the Woods trailer.

Any thoughts about Disney, Sondheim, Into the Woods and these movie stills, make yourself heard in the comments below.

  1. I had no trouble opening the trailer on Den Of Geek. But every time I tried to read the article it moved on to one about Guardians Of The Galaxy! I didn't know about this film. I have seen the stage show, some years ago. A lovely piece of musical theatre, too. A bit darker than the average Disney fairytale, but they've changed over the years. It's not one I'd take my ten year old niece to see. Interesting take, too - the implication that Red was raped by the Wolf(but ends up wearing a nice wolfskin cloak) and that the witch is Rapunzel's mother. The music is great.
