"Into the Woods Trailer" Surfaces (& People Get Excited, Even Though We're Pretty Sure It's Fan Made...)

Into the Woods by Charles Vess
The real question is, are they on target for a Christmas 2014 release? It's already (nearly) mid-May, which means we're about six months out and so far... nothing!

This trailer here, with the not-fantastic text and the weird lighting etc is looking.. less-than-Disney, ie it looks fan-made (please say it is because, although it's fine for a demo it's not looking very pro.) More telling, this appeared at the very end of April and there hasn't been a blip of news or comment about it since....

Here's the trailer though, and you can make up your own mind about it. Apparently it's still fooled a lot of people but Disney will be doing much better than this (we sincerely hope!).
Meryl Streep is the Witch in ''Into The Woods'' from Walt Disney Pictures. See the musical like you have never seen it before. 
Walt Disney Studios, the studio behind "Frozen" and "The Muppets", presents "Into the Woods", a stunning big-screen comedic musical adventure. When the Baker and his wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt) discover they have been put under a curse from the Witch (Meryl Streep) rendering them forever childless, they embark on a life changing adventure into the woods to seek out special items needed to lift the curse. The cow as white as milk belonging to a poor village boy named Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) looking to sell his milk-less cow, the cape as red as blood belonging to a courageous and blood thirsty little Red Riding hood (Lilla Crawford), the hair as yellow as corn from atop the head of a lonely and outcasted Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy) and finally the shoe as pure as gold having fallen from a distressed Cinderella's (Anna Kendrick) foot. With giants abound and where Big Bad Wolves (Johnny Depp) become the hunted, love and betrayal will the Baker and his wife ever be able to lift the curse on their family? 
Into the Woods by Walt Disney Productions brings a hilarious new spin on an already existing musical classic. 
The film is directed by Rob Marshall ("Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides", "Nine") and produced by John DeLuca, Marc Platt ("Winter's Tale", "2 Guns"). Featuring music from Stephen Sondheim ("Sweeney Todd", "Sunday in the Park with George") 
"Into the Woods" comes to theaters in 3D on Christmas 2014. 
What do you think?

  1. I agree with you. It's way too amateurish to be a real trailer.
