I was not specially interested by "Into the Woods", this new Disney movie with a mix of famous fairy tales, even with a great cast including Johnny Depp playing the Wolf, and Meryl Streep a witch... Until today, when i saw this featurette in which i learned that in fact the movie is also a musical directed by Rob Marshall who directed the Academy Award winner "Chicago".
But there is more, as music and lyrics have been written by the great Stephen Sondheim! Stephen Sondheim is a genius, he is one of the greatest song writers of our time - if not THE greatest and THIS changes everything for Into the Woods which suddenly becomes much more exciting!
Have a look at this featurette which also include tons of new footage!
