Walt Disney Home Entertainment has scheduled Rob Marshall’s modern twist on the beloved fairy tales, Into The Woods for release on Blu-Ray Disc and DVD in March.
Iconic characters, such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel, find their fates intertwined with a humble baker and his wife, whose longing to have a child sends them on a quest to reverse a witch’s (Meryl Streep) curse. With an all-star cast, that also features Johnny Depp as the Wolf, Emily Blunt as the Baker’s Wife, James Corden as the Baker, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as Cinderella’s Prince, Lilla Crawford as Little Red Riding Hood, Daniel Huttlestone as Jack and MacKenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel, this spellbinding adventure is everything you could ever wish for!
The DVD version of the release will be fairly lackluster, offering only the Featurette ”Deeper Into The Woods: Magic of the Woods” as a bonus feature.
Things look very differently, however, on the Blu-Ray version where Disney will include a Commentary Track by Director Rob Marshall and Producer John DeLuca, as well as the multi-part Featurette ”Deeper Into The Woods that consists of the segments ”From Stage To Screen,” “Magic of the Woods,” “Designing the Woods” and ”The Costumes of the Woods”.
The Never-Before-Seen Sondheim Original Song “She’ll Be Back” will also be included. In this, Meryl Streep performs a compelling new song that sheds a little more light on the Witch’s relationship with Rapunzel. This never-before- seen composition was penned especially for this movie by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, and is presented here with an introduction by Director Rob Marshall.
”There’s Something About The Woods” is another Feature that journeys into this mysterious forest to discover how this compelling, new musical was made. Meet Director Rob Marshall and his award-winning team of artists and craftspeople, see how the woods were brought to life…and what they represent to the story…and to all of us.
”The Cast As Good As Gold” allows you to meet the remarkable cast of this musical movie, and hear of their affinity for this Broadway classic.
In the Music & Lyrics Section you will get direct access to the musical song segments from the film, with optional sing-along lyrics.
“Into The Woods” will be in stores on March 24 for $39.99 on Blu-Ray Disc with DigitalHD, and $29.99 on DVD.
