One of the big worries about translating Stephen Sondheim’s play from stage to screen was what, if any, songs would be cut. It didn’t make it through unscathed, but there was one song that was cut that wasn’t even in the original musical. There was a beautiful song that Stephen Sondheim wrote for Meryl Streep, unfortunately it slowed the film down just at the moment things were picking up. So it had to go.
The good news is they filmed it and you’ll get to see it on the “Into the Woods” Blu-Ray or, as it turns out, you can get a preview right here.
For a new song, it definitely fits into the overall tone of the movie. Pre-order your Blu-ray combo pack here and it will arrive on March 24.
