The second trailer for ‘Into The Woods,’ takes a deeper look into the concept and possible structure of the film. We’re given a comprehensive look at the characters, and the way they interact.

Also evident in the trailer are potential comedic moments within the film, as well as the obvious musical element. Pushing the theme of ‘wishes’ and suggesting, ‘be careful what you wish for.’ This could lead to a story line that at first, resembles what we know and love about the classic fairytales, but could actually perhaps be the back story in this modern retelling. The trailer suggests we may delve deeper into the, what happens after the happily ever after?
There’s something about the trailer. I’m not sure if it’s the imagery, or the way Stephen Sondheim’s music and Meryl Streep’s voice have been woven throughout the footage, but there seems to be something enchanting about the potential this film has.
