Meryl is at it again! The first picture of Meryl Streep as The Witch in Into the Woods has been released -- and it's a striking change than what audiences may be used to for the screen legend.

In the photo, the three-time Oscar winner, 64, wears a long gray wig, a black dress with feather detail and long yellow nails. The role of The Witch was originated by Bernadette Peters in Stephen Sondheim's original 1987 Broadway production, with Vanessa Williams later reprising the role in a 2002 revival.

Some of Streep's costars have previously been spotted working on the U.K. set of the witty fairy-tale musical this past week. On Sept. 25, Anna Kendrick, who plays Cinderella in the film, and Chris Pine, who takes on the role as Cinderella's prince, were spotted laughing on the English countryside in costume while looking through pictures on a camera. 

That same day, first-time mom-to-be Emily Blunt was also photographed (with her baby bump!) alongside actor Billy Magnussen (Rapunzel's Prince). Ironically, Blunt plays The Baker's Wife, who wants a child but can't conceive because of a previous curse placed on her husband's family.

The star-studded cast also includes Lilla Crawford (Little Red Riding Hood), Daniel Huttlestone (Beanstalk), Johnny Depp (The Wolf), Christine Baranski (Cinderella's Stepmother), Mackenzie Mauzy (Rapunzel) and James Corden (The Baker).
