Our Review:

We love fairy tales so we were excited to get Into The Woods on Blu-ray. This movie has a few different fairy tales with a little twist and they all intertwine together. Anna Kendrick does a good job playing Cinderella. I always feel bad for Cinderella when you see how bad she is treated by her Stepmother and Stepsisters. They are so mean to her. Red Riding Hood is in this movie too. I loved Johnny Depp playing the bad wolf. That was great! Meryl Streep is an excellent witch. I liked when she kept appearing in trees in the woods, talking to the baker. We have always liked musicals and Into The Woods is a good one. I'm very impressed at how well the actors can sing. Everyone in the family will enjoy this movie.

There are some really good special features too. I liked "The cast as good as gold". The actors tell you about their role in the movie and how they felt about singing in front of their fellow actors. There is also Deeper Into The Woods, music, lyrics and much more.
