Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine & Company Film INTO THE WOODS Royal Wedding
The first set photos of the starry cast making up the ensemble of the big screen version of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's celebrated fairy tale-themed musical INTO THE WOODS shooting on location at Dover Castle in the UK have leaked, including shots of the elaborate royal wedding sequence featuring stage and screen stalwart Anna Kendrick as Cinderella and internationally recognized headliner Chris Pine as her Prince, among others.
Kendrick dons a flowing matrimonial frock with pink accents, while Pine sports colorful powder blue-hued princely duds in the new photos that have emerged, showcasing the players in a beautifully designed horse-drawn carriage in a lavish celebratory procession before taking their vows.
Other actors in the scene include Christine Baranski, Lucy Punch, Tammy Blanchard, MacKenzie Mauzy, Billy Magnussen, James Corden, Emily Blunt and more, who were also spotted on set. Rob Marshall can be seen providing direction in a few of the photos, as expected, too.
Also, Kendrick and Pine took some time off in between takes to snap some shots of the scenery surrounding them and conferred on their captures - and perhaps stole a shot or two to be shared on social media sometime soon, as well!
BroadwayWorld reported earlier this month that a casting notice had gone out to assemble extras to take on the roles of townspeople and observers at a grand ball scene assumedly relating to Cinderella and her prince and now we can clearly see that that has come to fruition.

Of note, the sumptuous costumes on display in these shots are designed by director Rob Marshall's longtime collaborator Colleen Atwood, who also provided designs for his movie musicals CHICAGO and NINE, as well as Tim Burton's SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET.
Filming on the Rob Marshall-directed Disney feature film is currently underway on soundstages at Shepperton Studios and on location in the UK, following soundtrack recording sessions conducted at the beginning of this month. For even more information, see BroadwayWorld's coverage of Week 1 here.
