Into the Woods

I saw the movie, Into the Woods and loved it!

I knew basically nothing of what this movie was going to be about when I decided I wanted to watch it. I just knew there was singing involved and some great actors and actresses were going to be in it. So why not?

First, I’m so glad it was a musical. I love musicals! Second, I was surprised that there were so many story lines in one movie! Cinderella, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, tied together with an iconic witch and a baker and his wife. Everyone in the story is searching for something and all the characters come together in an insane way. So I definitely say kudos to whoever wrote the story, because it was amazing!

I loved each story for different reasons:
-Cinderella was amazing because it has always been one of my favorite stories. I also loved Anna Kendrick’s acting and singing. I mean, can we just sing a song together, please? πŸ™‚ Oh, and heyyyy, Prince Charming πŸ˜‰
anna-kendrick-chris-pine-into-the-woods-Rapunzel was an interesting one. I like how the witch was involved in this story.
ITW_Rapunzel_OtherPrince-Little Red Riding Hood made me laugh. Johnny Depp was fabulous. Just the right bit of creepy necessary for a big bad wolf.

-Jack and the Beanstalk was awesome. I loved the actor who played Jack. He was a great singer and actor! His mother was great as well!
into-woods-jack-poster-Meryl Streep is one of my all-time favorite actresses. I love her versatility and she played a witch fabulously!
ITW_1-Sht_v18_Lg-Last but not least, I’d have to say my favorite storyline would have to be the baker and his wife. It was a story I didn’t know compared to the rest of them and I really liked how I was truly invested in this story throughout the whole movie. Emily Blunt is awesome and I love her acting. Her singing surprised me too! The actor who played the baker, James Corden, was someone I don’t remember seeing in movies previously. But I did really enjoy his acting! Fabulous work!

The storyline was beyond amazing. The acting was great! I love Prince Charming + “The Other Prince” so much. Their duet was perfection. πŸ˜‰ The music in this movie was fabulous. I absolutely loved all the songs.

I’d definitely recommend this movie if you’re into musicals and fairy tales. I’d listen to the soundtrack on repeat and buy this movie on DVD πŸ˜›

What are your thoughts of this movie?

Edited:

I watched the original broadway musical after I watched the movie. I SO wish it happened the other way around! But I’d definitely recommend both! They are both amazing and I like them both for different reasons.
