Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt and Anna Kendrick will join Ellen DeGeneres on December 22, 2014, to promote “Into the Woods”. Here’s what Ellen’s website writes: “Once upon a time, in a far-off kingdom, from the pages of classic fairy tales, to the stages of Broadway to the lights of Hollywood, and onto Ellen’s set, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt and Anna Kendrick are here! The stars of the film adaptation of “Into the Woods” have been climbing beanstalks, searching for princes and trying to avoid the Big Bad Wolf this year, and they’re giving our host a preview of their amazing experiences behind the scenes. With so much talent in the room, Ellen will definitely be masterminding her own adventures! They can sing, they can dance, they tell stories brilliantly – Meryl can even make an apple pie recipe sound dramatic. Ellen will see what else they can do! Our host will catch up on everything going on in the lives of these three tremendous women, and take a peek at this highly anticipated new movie!
