Disney Takes D23-Goers INTO THE WOODS, Reveals Logo for Upcoming Film!

Disney's not straying too far from Sondheim as they venture INTO THE WOODS. At least not in their branding efforts.

At today's D23 live-action film expo, Sean Bailey, President of Walt Disney Studios' Motion Picture Production, took to the stage to unveil the newly crafted logo for the film adaptation of the classic stage musical. Check it out, via Inside the Magic, to the left!

Bailey kept mum on the information front, only going so far as to announce that Meryl Streep would take on the role of 'The Witch,' while Johnny Depp would portray 'The Wolf.' Sources had exclusively confirmed the cast to BroadwayWorld in July. Click here for our original announcement.

CHICAGO's Rob Marshall directs the film, with a screenplay by original bookwriter James Lapine. INTO THE WOODS features Streep as The Witch, Depp as The Wolf, James Corden as The Baker, Emily Blunt as The Baker's Wife, 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, Sophia Grace Brownlee as Little Red Riding Hood, Daniel Huttlestone as Jack, and Tracey Ullman as Jack's Mother.
