The original teaser for Into the Woods seemed almost afraid to let on that the film was a musical, but happily that’s not true of the full-length Into the Woods trailer. There’s plenty of singing to be found here — and lots more plot points as well. Finally, we know exactly why all of these different fairy tales come to cross paths, and a bit more about what happens when they do.
At the center of the story are the Baker and his wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt), who want the witch (Meryl Streep) to lift a curse so they can have a child. She sends them on a journey to procure several ingredients: “the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, and the slipper as pure as gold.” Watch the new Into the Woods trailer after the jump.

Why adapt just one fairy tale when you can tackle four of them at once? Disney’s Into the Woods takes the classic stories of Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Jack and the Beanstalk, weaving them all into a single fantastical musical centered around the original tale of a baker and his wife, who just want to have a baby.
The plus side to this massive mash-up is that we’ll get to see our favorite fairy tale characters collide in unexpected ways, but the down side is that it’s hard to keep track of so many characters. So Disney has released a series of Into the Woods character posters to get you better acquainted. Check ’em out after the jump.
