MAGICAL NEWS!!

Back in 2012 we heard a rumor that unparalleled actress Meryl Streep would be bringing her skillz to the Disney film adaptation of beloved musical Into The Woods as the main Witch herself…

And now thanks to a lip-slip courtesy of famed composer David Krane, we're almost 100% positive the rumor is TRUE!!

During a recent interview, Krane dished:

"I am coming into an exciting time. My show, “The Road to Qatar,’ is being presented in London next month and then I am doing a revival of an old show, ‘Good News’ at the Goodspeed Opera House. And then the biggest news—they are doing a movie of the musical ‘Into the Woods.’ Disney is going to make the movie and I will do the arrangements. Meryl Streep will be the witch and it will be the first time I have worked with her since 1977 when we did ‘Happy End.’"

The Disney adaptation is set to be directed by Rob Marshall, who also worked with Krane on the Oscar-winning Chicago!

Ok, so assuming Meryl IS on board to bewitch us all, now we just wanna know if Anna Kendrick will take on the role of Cinderella!

Pretty please?! With alllllll the sugar on top?

THAT WOULD BE EVERYTHING!!

    Is it the musical or BASED on the musical? If they are doing the musical itself, I just don't see Meryl Streep (as wonderful of an actress as she is) being to pull off the musical chops of the witch. It's a pretty demanding vocal role. I'm hoping that it's just a movie based on the musical because I don't think Meryl Streep is the right choice for the role of the witch. Maybe it's just me though…

    On the fence about Meryl Streep, but hell yes to Anna Kendrick! I need her to be in this movie.

    Only because Meryl is a huge star, and disney do everything with the biggest stars , but i agree… i dont think shes the right voice… There's no one like BERNADETTE PETERS for that role!!… i would like to see broadways stars like BERNIE, SUTTON FOSTER, LEA SALONGA, IDINA MENZEL etc

    I hope that they hire some real singers from Broadway to be in this movie. Celebrities are great and all, but come on. They keep on taking jobs and half of them aren't as decent as the people who slave on audition after audition. They only thing that merits them is their fame. That is just sad.

    Meryl is a fabulous choice though! She is the only exception.
