INTO THE WOODS Movie Set Update! Kendrick, Pine, Cinderella's Family & More
The colorful cast of characters comprising the ensemble of the Disney stage-to-screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's fairy tale musical INTO THE WOODS has assembled on location in the UK under the direction of Rob Marshall and a slew of shots from the set have leaked via social media and news outlets yesterday and today, including a first look at Cinderella's lavish wedding celebration with her mother and stepsisters in attendance, as well as her dashing prince and their grand arrival at the palace.
Anna Kendrick and Chris Pine - as Cinderella and her Prince, respectively - were spotted taking some photos themselves, as a matter of fact, while Christine Baranski, Lucy Punch and Tammy Blanchard - as Cinderella's nefarious Stepmother and Stepsisters, of course - arrived with all-too apropos and wittily amusing monochrome-hued glamour fully intact.
Additionally, the first glimpse of the reaction from members of the wedding reception upon the Giant's arrival have appeared, as well, along with a more expansive look at Dover Castle and its surrounding scenery thanks to cast and crew members offering a glimpse via social media - as well as a few interlopers and passers-by posting a peek or two, too.

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.
