Disney has released a new all-singing, all-dancing trailer for its Christmas musical Into the Woods which is due out in cinemas on 25 December. After the first trailer, which might have got fans of musicals a little concerned with its lack of song, this latest instalment does not disappoint and the two minute teaser is jam-packed with musical previews.

The impressive ensemble of fairytale characters, played by an even more impressive ensemble of stars, all get their turn in the trailer spotlight but its Meryl Streep’s witch character that steals the show.

She shows audiences the full range of her vocal chords and gives viewers a glimpse of her character pre and post magical makeover.

Into the Woods is based on Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s popular, award-winning musical of the same name.

Set in an alternate world of various Brothers Grimm fairy stories, this modern twist centres around the original tale of a baker and his wife who have been cursed by a witch and must enter into the woods to break the spell so they can start their much-longed for family.

Further well-known classics intertwine with the desperate baker and his wife and they interact with other storybook characters from Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel on their travels.

Directed by Rob Marshall, this is Disney’s first theatrical adaptation of a Broadway musical and features an all-star cast, including Britain’s very own James Corden and Emily Blunt as the baker and the baker’s wife.
