It’s nearly time to go Into the Woods! The film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s beloved musical comes out Christmas Day, and ET talked to the composer and Meryl Streep about turning the fairytale mashup into a major motion picture. Streep attended the original Broadway production of Into the Woods, which starred Bernadette Peters as The Witch, the same role the Oscar-winning actress plays in the film. “I thought it was fantastic,” Streep told ET. “I remember coming out of the theater singing to myself.” ET got a behind-the-scenes look at some of the film’s special effects and talked to Sondheim about casting the star in the big-screen adaptation. “Meryl Streep is so remarkable,” the composer gushed. “She would do a number of takes on the songs in the recording studio and every one was different.”

This will be Meryl’s first appearance on the Letterman show since 2008, when she promoted both Mamma Mia and Doubt. She has been a frequent visitor to GMA over the years, including a hilarious stint in 1990 with her daughters. Be sure to find coverage on both new appearances after their broadcasts. Thanks to Alvaro and Joan for the heads-up. Edit: Please note that the Letterman appearance has been canceled, probably due to Mike Nichols’ passing today.

A new trailer for “Into the Woods” has been released today. The latest peek at the big-screen take on Stephen Sondheim’s Broadway musical opens with a shot of Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, leading newcomers Lilla Crawford as Little Red Riding Hood and Daniel Huttlestone as Jack, and finally Emily Blunt as The Baker’s Wife with her husband The Baker, played by James Corden, as they sing “I Wish.” Streep makes her grand entrance as The Witch who raised Rapunzel, bargaining with the Baker and his wife to remove a curse in exchange for a cow as white as milk, a cape as red as blood, hair as yellow as corn, and a slipper as pure as gold. She then steals the show, singing her big number, “Stay With Me.” You can watch the new trailer in the video archive.
