First Look At INTO THE WOODS Movie Cast In Costume!
The majority of the ensemble from Disney's forthcoming big screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's celebrated family-friendly fairy tale-themed musical INTO THE WOODS convened at Dover Castle in the UK today to film scenes for the forthcoming tuner and our first look at James Corden, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Billy Magnussen, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, Lucy Punch, MacKenzie Mauzy and Daniel Huttlestone in costume is now available!
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 (Kendrick) and her prince (Pine) and now we can see that that has come to fruition. Check out that article here.
Additionally, peruse yesterday's extensive BroadwayWorld article all about Week 3 of filming on INTO THE WOODS here.
Also, James Corden found some time in between filming scenes to even pose for a shot with bystander Beth Haggar, who posted the pic to her Instagram account with the caption, "Me and #JamesCorden today at Dover Castle, filming on location for a new film called #IntoTheWoods."

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.
