Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep all in the same movie. Sign me up. The fact it’s an adaptation of a beloved musical is the cherry on top.

Ahead of the release of the first movie trailer, Walt Disney shares ten new production stills from Into The Woods. The film is an adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s classic Broadway musical which tells the tale of a handful of fairy tale characters’ journeys into the forest.

Rounding out the cast are Christine Baranski, James Corben, Billy Magnussen and several actors from New York theater. Into The Woods heads into theaters on December 25. Check out more pics below.

Movie Synopsis

Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests.

This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.

Mark my words. In the next decade, every Walt Disney animated classic will receive a live adaptation. At the rate the Mouse House is going, it certainly a possibility. They’ve already given Alice In Wonderland and Sleeping Beauty this treatment. Not to mention, upcoming adaptations including The Jungle Book, Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast are all on the way. The studio just announced another project in the works. Find out what it is below.

Rumors of Tina Fey developing a Hocus Pocus sequel have been greatly exaggerated. In fact, Hocus Pocus 2 isn’t even currently in the works by anyone for Disney. However, Fey has teamed up with the Mouse House for a bewitching movie of her own.

Deadline.com uncovered that Fey has teamed up with Cinderella producer Allison Shearmur for a supernatural-themed feature film in the vein of Ghostbusters. Tentatively, it’s being referred to as Untitled Witch Project. Fey will not only produce the film but will also star in it. If Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler or Kathy Najimy somehow get involved, expect those Hocus Pocus rumors to resurface once again.

What do you think of this new project from Tina Fey? Witches are certainly hot these days. Tina can certainly give them a hilarious spin. Bummed that Hocus Pocus 2 isn’t in the works? Sound off below.

It’s a tale as old as time and Walt Disney is planning on telling it again.

Variety is reporting that the studio is planning a live action adaptation of their 1991 animated hit. No word if the film will be a musical but with Bill Condon reportedly on board, it would seem that way. Though he’s best known for his work on the last two Twilight films, Condon also worked on the hit musical Dreamgirls starring Jennifer Hudson. Evan Spiliotopoulos is writing the script with Mandeville Films producing.

Disney Finally Announces The Incredibles 2 Is Coming

It’s news fans have been waiting for since 2004. Disney executives announced the long-awaited sequel for The Incredibles during the company’s shareholders meeting in Portland, Oregon. Other than that, very few details were released. Last summer, director Brad Bird talked about the potential sequel.

“People think that I have not been [thinking about 'The Incredibles 2'], but I have. Because I love those characters and love that world. I am stroking my chin and scratching my head. I have many, many elements that I think would work really well in another film, and if I can get ‘em to click all together, I would probably wanna do that.”

To tide moviegoers until that time, the studio announced plans to re-release the original Incredibles animated film in 3D, much like how they reformatted Pixar’s Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc. and Finding Nemo. Ratatouille is also getting a 3D makeover.

Even in its tenth week of release, Frozen is still raking in the big dough at the box office. Domestically, it’s approaching $350 million and it just crossed the $800 million mark internationally. At its current pace, it stands a good chance of topping Universal’s Despicable Me 2‘s worldwide total of $965 million.

Not only is the Disney flick dominating cineplexes, it’s doing gangbusters with its accompanying soundtrack. It topped the Billboard Top 200 for two weeks and both Demi Lovato and Idina Menzel’s versions of “Let It Go” have become Billboard Top 40 hits. Menzel’s version though is the top-selling cut from the album with over 600,000 downloads.

Naturally, with the song being such a fan-favorite around the world, Disney created a multi-language sequence that features Queen Elsa (Menzel) belting out the tune in 25 different languages. Check it out below.

You know you’ve made it when Mickey Mouse calls you up to take part in the Disney Dream Portrait Series. Jessica Chastain is the latest Hollywood star to be immortalized as a beloved character for the Disney Parks advertising campaign. Once again, famed photographer Annie Leibovitz helmed the shoot.

With her luscious red locks, it’s only fitting that the Zero Dark Thirty star channel Merida from Brave. “I definitely see her as a modern princess. She’s headstrong, she’s funny, she has great passions,” Chastain said. ”She’s a good role model for little girls.” Chastain’s photo includes the caption “Where your destiny awaits.” Check out photos from previous years below and see how Jessica’s portrait stacks up.

If a professional hockey player can become a world-caliber figure skater in a matter of months, why can’t cricket players from India play in Major League Baseball. After all, it is the movies. However, the latter is actually a true story and the basis for Disney’s upcoming film, Million Dollar Arm, starring Jon Hamm as sports agent J.B. Berstein.

Berstein is inspired to stage a reality sports competition in India in an attempt to discover cricket players who might have major-league worthy fastballs. Through the contest, Bernstein enlists Rinku Singh (Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal) and brings them to the United States to train with baseball coach Tom House (Bill Paxton), with the intent of ultimately having the cricketers become contracted by a Major League Baseball team. During their stay, Singh and Patel adapt to an American lifestyle while under the care of Bernstein, who is simultaneously shaping his own personal life. Eventually Singh and Patel both get signed by the Pittsburgh Pirates. In other words, the perfect live action rags-to-riches Disney tale.

Lake Bell and Alan Arkin also co-star in the film. Directed by Craig Gillespie, Million Dollar Arm hits theaters May 16, 2014. Check out the trailer below. I have to admit, I got sucked in and looking forward to checking it out.
