Disney Feature Film Into the Woods

Meet the Characters and Cast of Into the Woods

Cinderella (Anna Kendrick)
Cinderella (Anna Kendrick): As in most versions of the Cinderella story, she just would like to go to the ball… and, you know, maybe marry the prince. At first fragile and unsure, this Cinderella learns that getting your wish means learning to stand on your own.
Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford)
Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford): Just loading up with a few sweets (which appear to be more for her than her ill grandmother in the woods), Red learns that straying from the path has consequences—like meeting up with a hungry wolf.


Jack (Daniel Huttlestone)
Jack (Daniel Huttlestone): Jack is best friends with his cow, Milky White, who hasn’t lived up to her name in a long time. His irritable mother (Tracy Ullman) insists he sell the cow at market so they can afford food. He finds another way out (and up).


Cinderella's Prince (Chris Pine)
Cinderella’s Prince (Chris Pine): As narcissistic as he is handsome, the Prince faces the “agony” of longing for a beautiful maiden who continues to elude his grasp.


Witch (Meryl Streep)
Witch (Meryl Streep): Yes, she’s ugly and seemingly evil, but we learn she was once just your average “witch next door” until something awful happened to her. She has never been the same since.


Baker (James Corden)
Baker (James Corden): Following the death of his mother, the Baker’s father abandoned home, leaving the Baker to fend for himself, and leaving him uncertain of his own capabilities as a parent.


The Baker's Wife (Emily Blunt)
The Baker’s Wife (Emily Blunt): Headstrong and determined, the Baker’s Wife loves children and desperately wants one of her own. Only when she realizes how far she is willing to go, does she understand how much it really means.


Wolf (Johnny Depp)
Wolf (Johnny Depp): He’s hungry. And really, if you (were a wolf and) saw a cherubic, young girl—freshly full of sweets—wouldn’t you want a taste? He’s not really bad. He’s just… insatiable.


Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)
Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy): Trapped in a tower by a hideous witch who forces her to grow out her hair so that it can be used as a ladder—it’s enough to make anyone a little crazy. Right?


Rapunzel's Prince (Billy Magnussen)
Rapunzel’s Prince (Billy Magnussen): While perhaps slightly less self-involved than his brother, he, too, is puzzled why a lovely maiden (this one in a door-less tower) might be…out of his reach.


Cinderella's Stepmother and Stepsisters (Christine Baranski, Tammy Blanchard, Lucy Punch)
Cinderella’s Stepmother and Stepsisters (Christine Baranski, Tammy Blanchard, Lucy Punch): Let’s just say, these girls make the women in Disney’s version of the animated classic look positively polite. And watch your toes around the Stepmother.
