If you haven’t already, watch the first official featurette from “Cinderella” – The Legacy below:
Disney’s Into The Woods took the iconic music from Stephen Sondheim’s twisted fairy tale stage musical and turn it into one of the best films of 2014. In this special featurette, Director Rob Marshall, Author James Lapine, various cast members, and Stephen Sondheim himself, talk about translating the music from stage to screen:
The sound of the movie is great, as are the performances. It even managed to eke out 2nd place in a tough Box Office weekend. Have you seen it yet?
Disney has also released a second featurette that with the cast and producers talking about the production. Check it out below:
The Stephen Sondheim musical “Into the Woods” features a modern look at beloved fairy tales, with a bit of a twist. This makes it perfect territory for Disney, which lately has been adding its own twist to fairy tales on both the big screen (Frozen, Tangled) and small (Once Upon A Time on ABC).
Here’s a new dark clip (literally dark since it happens at midnight) featuring a small bit of the song “Steps of the Palace” sung by Anna Kendrick as Cinderella.
(note entire song is available to listen to below the jump)
“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy), all tied together by an original story involving a Baker and his Wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the Witch (Meryl Streep), who has put a curse on them.
Rob Marshall, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the Academy Award-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” directs the film, which is based on the Tony-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics.
“Into the Woods” will be released in theaters December 25, 2014. Will you be seeing it in theaters?
“Imagine a place where nothing is impossible.”
What a great tagline for the new movie “Tomorrowland.” Loosely inspired by Walt Disney’s constant search for a future world where anything is possible, the new movie from Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof takes audiences on a wild thrill ride of non-stop adventure through new dimensions that have only been dreamed of.
This is the kind of movie that would have really inspired the young me. I can’t wait to bring my son to it.
“Tomorrowland” is a riveting mystery adventure starring Academy Award winner George Clooney. Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world—and them—forever.
The film also stars Hugh Laurie as brilliant scientist David Nix, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson.
