Christmas is finally here. Whether that means your morning will be spent waking up at 6am to see what Santa left in your stocking or sleeping in till noon and ordering from Seamless, we're pretty sure your evening will be spent going Into The Woods, because the Disney film is officially released today!

Into The Woods, with a book by James Lapine and music and lyrics by the legendary Stephen Sondheim, follows several Brothers Grimm fairy-tale characters as plots become intertwined during their journeys through the forest. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1987 with Broadway legend and Sondheim regular Bernadette Peters originating the role of the Witch.

The much-anticipated (especially by musical theater lovers) film stars Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Billy Magnussen, MacKenzie Mauzy, Lilla Crawford, James Corden, and more.
