With four children under seven we generally limit our cinema visits to real children’s movies. Movie tickets don’t come cheap so when we do go we want to make sure it is appropriate and fun for the whole family (I think hubby and I only went to the movies together twice in almost 10 years!). While we liked the sound of Disney‘s Into The Woods ourselves we decided our kids were a bit too young to watch it, so we’ve been hanging out for the DVD release instead and now it’s finally here. Time for a date night in I’d say!
Into The Woods is not just another recount of a famous favourite tale, it’s a magical and musical mix of several classic fairytales skilfully woven together by acclaimed filmmaker Rob Marshall (the mastermind behind the Academy Award®-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”). Featuring a range of big movie stars like Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp and more Into The Woods is sure to impress. Get ready to be surprised by all the unexpected twists and turns!
Follow the story of the childless baker and his wife who are desperate to lift the curse placed on them by a mean witch. Her demands include a cow as white as milk, a cape as red as blood, hair as yellow as corn and a slipper as pure as gold, not exactly things you find on every street corner. During their search they meet Jack, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel and learn some valuable life lessons. Will their dream finally come true?
Into the Woods is available on DVD ($39.95) and Blu-ray ($49.95) at major retailers across Australia.
