The modern twist on several beloved fairy tales, “Into The Woods,” is a musical inspired by several beloved fairy tales and characters including Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) and her prince (Chris Pine), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone) and Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mausy).

All of the characters and fables are intertwined into a story involving a baker and his wife, played by James Corden and Emily Blunt who wish to begin a family and their interaction with a witch who has cursed them. Meryl Streep stars as the witch in this humorous and heartfelt film directed by Rob Marshall. The film is based on the musical stage production by Tony, Grammy and Oscar-winning composer and lyricist Stephen Soundheim and Tony winner James Lapine, both of whom will be judging the contest.
