(PCM) Fans excited for Walt Disney Pictures’ Christmas Day release, Into the Woods, are rejoicing after the studio, responsible for countless classic and beloved fairy tales, finally released a trailer that features songs from the musical.
The new trailer, released early on Thursday, features at least ____ songs from the film and gives viewers a better background on this original story than previous trailers.
It is revealed that the Baker and his wife, played by James Cordon and Emily Blunt, need to go into the woods and find a cow as white as milk, a cape as a red as blood, hair as yellow as corn, and a slipper as pure as gold to have The Witch, played by Meryl Streep, undo a curse.
The trailer, which gives viewers a full look at the rich and magical world created in Into the Woods, features shots of Meryl Streep singing for the first time as well as a chorus singing the happy melody of an uplifting tune.

Into the Woods is directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha) and based on the Tony Award winning play by James Lapine and Stephen Soundheim.
