    I guess there was no way in hell they were going to cover his face with an elaborate makeup job.

    There is a featurette up in the trailers section of iTunes, you can tell that it is actually a musical. From what I could tell from a clip, Meryl Streep's singing was much improved from Mamma Mia.

    Just watched the 'A Look Inside' trailer. Yep, definitely a musical! And what little bit of Meryl Streep's singing I heard sounded pretty darn good to me!http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/disney/intothewoods/

    To be honest, I thought they were YA novel covers at first...

    (Until I noticed the branches and shadows moving.)

    Hopefully she does a better job than Vanessa Williams did in the 2002 Broadway revival. Williams is a talented singer, but the role of the Witch wasn't in her range, and when they transposed the music for her the musical suffered for it.

    Got an email yesterday about a sneak preview at a local theater on Monday, but the tickets were gone by the time I clicked the link (less than an hour after it was sent). :(

    One person whose presence in this film interests me is Annette Crosbie. I loved her in The Slipper and the Rose. It should be interesting to see what she brings to the film.

    Yeah, I was sharply disappointed in Lasseter for not pushing for more 2-D animation. The hand-drawn styles of their cell-drawn features were so varied you never got tired of them. One company's CGI animation looks like everyone else's CGI animation to my eyes, and while the visual styles have differences, for me it all becomes a big computer-generated blur, and only a very few features stand out. Hopefully the younger Myazaki and a small, brave handful of other innovators will keep the last vestiges of this noble and beautiful art alive.

    I thought "Into the Woods" was opening December 25th. Now the previews say January 8th, 2015. What happened? Is it opening in Los Angeles only on December 25th for awards consideration, or has the whole thing been pushed back.

    I'm having a hard time finding anything on the 'net contrary to December 25th for a release date.

    But maybe that's just because that's what was out there for so long...

    Fandango is currently selling tickets for Into the Woods for December 25th. I really doubt the date has changed.

    The movie's official website still says this Christmas. The international advertising has the January 8th date, but the domestic (US) advertising still has Christmas listed.
