Its always interesting to see Disney stories crossover. Into The woods was one of those interesting movies. Since it was a music it was filled with songs. Finding out that certain actors and actresses could sing was very exciting. I didn’t get the point to the story though… no wait I did get the point of the story. Though I didn’t understand how the villains were destroyed. it didn’t make much sense. Other than that it was kind of exciting and funny for me. Specially Cinderella, “Anna Kendrick” was amazing and there was a funny twist to her story. The wolf “Johnny Depp” was incredible and funny as well. The most amazing character however was the witch “Meryl Streep” she never failed to amaze me. The movie is good. The story is meh. The actors/actresses were amazing though they made it watchable.
