Behind The Scenes: Into The Woods – From Stage To Screen!

INTO THE WOODS

Although Disney’s Into The Woods is doing well in theaters, it was considered to be a risky move – taking a three-hour hit Broadway musical and turning it into a two-hour movie. Plus, there was the fact that Into The Woods is not the lightest exploration of fairy tales.

On the plus side, director Rob Marshall was an old hand at adapting Broadway hits into movie form – his Chicago nabbed a few Oscars® – and the screenplay for Into The Woods was adapted by James Lapine, who, with Stephen Sondheim, created the original musical.

So, what did it take to take Into The Woods from stage to screen? Follow the jump to check out a video dealing with that very topic.
