First Look At Meryl Streep In INTO THE WOODSThe very first look at iconic stage and screen superstar Meryl Streep as the Witch in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's fairy tale-themed musical INTO THE WOODS has now been revealed, showcasing the three-time Academy Award winner in perhaps her most grisly guise to date.

Claws, wrinkles and gray hair aplently, Streep gazes intently from within the gnarled branches of the titular trees while wearing a billowing black gown with bulbous shoulder accents.

All of the rest of the cast sans Streep and Johnny Depp have been spotted on location at Dover Castle this week and this is now the first production still as well as the first look at Streep in the film.

See BroadwayWorld's extensive coverage of the first day of filming at Dover Castle from yesterday here, as well as the preliminary look at Cinderella's wedding festivities here and today's update here. Peruse another extensive BroadwayWorld article all about Week 3 of filming on INTO THE WOODS from earlier this week, available here.

Of note, the sumptuous costumes on display in these new 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.

The confirmed complete cast for INTO THE WOODS is as follows: Meryl Streep as The Witch, James Corden as The Baker, Emily Blunt as The Baker's Wife, Johnny Depp as The Wolf, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as Cinderella's Prince, Billy Magnussen as Rapunzel's Prince, Mackenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel, Lucy Punch as Lucinda, Tammy Blanchard as Florinda, Christine Baranski as Cinderella's Stepmother and Tracey Ullman as Jack's Mother, with Lilla Crawford as Little Red Riding Hood and Daniel Huttlestone as Jack.
