This review appears in full on my other site – The Reviews.
Let’s get this out of the way at the start – if you don’t like musicals or if you get stomach ulcers thinking about anybody taking your beloved fairy tales and “ruining them”, this is not the film for you. Just ignore it completely.
Having said that, if you know anything at all about this musical, you’re gonna love this version. Into The Woods stays close to the script. Very close. There is only one minor change that honestly doesn’t detract at all from the story. (Check out the end of the post if you want to know what it is.)
