New ‘Into The Woods’ poster features Meryl Streep’s Witch

Disney debuted the first poster for Into The Woods on Tuesday afternoon.

The poster features a shot of Meryl Streep, in the role of The Witch, crawling through some branches and staring straight into your soul. “Be careful what you wish for,” the tagline reads.

The release of this poster may indicate that a new trailer is coming soon. The first trailer for Into the Woods debuted in late July but was a bit short on footage. (You can see a bunch of great stills at the link.)

Into The Woods has an all-star cast including Chris Pine (Cinderella’ Prince), Anna Kendrick (Cinderella), Streep, James Corden (The Baker), and Johnny Depp (The Wolf).

According to Disney, the film 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.”

The film opens in theaters on Christmas.
