INTO THE WOODS Movie Trailer To Premiere On ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT?
Eager fans awaiting Disney's hotly anticipated big screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's fairy tale-themed musical INTO THE WOODS will apparently find some salvation later this week when the long-awaited teaser trailer premieres on ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT if new social media suggestions are correct.
ET updated their Twitter account earlier today, notifying fans to tune in for a preview of INTO THE WOODS, writing, "Trending: Into the Woods -> Catch your first glimpse w/ Meryl Streep on

Plus, it looks like INTO THE WOODS will be adding some new material to what's already been shot in the form of a month of reshoots currently underway according to recent social media posts.
Production runner Steve Baldwin took to Instagram to share a shot of Shepperton Studios along with the comment, "Another day another dollar #studio #disney #intothewoods" quickly followed up by the comment, "A month of reshoots :)"
Baldwin's Instagram account mysteriously disappeared shortly after making the post, alas.
The reshoot news comes hot on the heels of recent outcry from some vocal fans following comments from Stephen Sondheim regarding the changes that have been made to the feature film, including the decision to not kill the character of Rapunzel, though it is unclear at this time what precisely what material the reshoots will specifically address.
The official description of INTO THE WOODS is as follows: "INTO THE WOODS is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)-all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them. Rob Marshall, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the Academy Award®-winning musical "Chicago" and Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," directs the film, which is based on the Tony®-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics. Produced by Marshall, John DeLuca, "Wicked" producer Marc Platt and Callum McDougall, "Into the Woods" will be released in theaters Dec. 25, 2014. Starring Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick and Chris Pine, "Into the Woods" is a humorous and heartfelt musical that follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel - all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them."
