After promotional photos and a teaser trailer, we already had a sincerely decent thought of what Disney’s film instrumentation of Stephen Sondheim’s postmodern Brothers Grimm mash-up Into a Woods would demeanour like. With one exception. Up until now a usually perspective we had of Johnny Depp’s large bad Wolf was a fleeting, hairy glance of a paw. But one of Entertainment Weekly’s four Into a Woods covers this week unveils Depp’s full lupine look. What do we think?
He looks morally rapacious though also wholly anachronistic. Everyone else, from Anna Kendrick to Emily Blunt, is kitted out in out-of-date bodices. What’s with a bushy zoot-suit demonstration on Depp? Sure, it’s really Tex Avery, though it doesn’t blend. It’s also extraordinary that a repository put Mackenzie Mauzy’s Rapunzel front and core on one of a 4 covers. On a one hand, she’s not a really distinguished figure in a play. On a other, there have already been rumors that her partial has been significantly altered for a film. Can we assume Disney is perplexing to gain on a recognition of Tangled and their Disney-princess brand?
In a gallery above, we also get a initial demeanour during Meryl Streep’s Witch post-transformation. (Worry not, fans of Streep glamour, we won’t have to put adult with her in crone mode for a whole film.) Speaking of Disney-princess brand, a Witch and Rapunzel are giving off a flattering complicated Frozen vibe.
Finally, both a gallery above and a film itself will offer American audiences a closer demeanour during Craig Ferguson’s Late Late Show replacement, James Corden, who plays a Baker in a film. This is Corden’s biggest U.S. purpose to date (despite a adorned casting of Streep and Depp, Corden’s impression is indeed a lead of a show) and all eyes will be on him to establish what a destiny of The Late Late Show will be. No pressure!
With all a looks sincerely good established, a usually thing left is to hear some songs from a soundtrack. Come on, Into a Woods. If we play them, children will listen.
Into a Woods opens Dec 25, 2014.
