"I wish," the character utters—a phrase that is repeated throughout the trailer. Fans are then introduced to Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) and his beanstalk, Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy), and Cinderella (Anna Kendrick).

Meryl Streep makes her grand entrance in the clip as The Witch, questioning The Baker (James Corden) and The Baker's Wife (Emily Blunt) about their curse.

Into the Woods is an adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's 1980s musical of the same name. The original stage production famously featured many songs, some of which will likely be included in the film. 

Directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago), Into the Woods also stars Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, and Christine Baranski, among others.
