On Wednesday, December 10, TheaterMania will be releasing exclusive footage from Disney's Into the Woods. In preparation, we've embarked on a five-day journey celebrating the stars of the upcoming film.

Newly minted Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Meryl Streep is one of the unquestionably great actresses of our time, as her Into the Woods co-star James Corden recently remarked. It seems that she can play anyone or anything on stage and screen. Who could forget her bravura performance in the 2006 Shakespeare in the Park production of Mother Courage and Her Children, which ended with Streep singing her heart out while pulling a massive cart against the flow of a rotating stage, like some kind of Reformation-era musical salmon? She brings panache and loads of energy to every role. We can't wait to see her rapping Sondheim lyrics as the Witch in Into the Woods.

And for those who doubt the musical abilities of La Streep, need we remind you of this?
