“Into the Woods” Movie Quotes intertwine a number of classic Grimm Brothers fairy tales into one story about a baker and his wife who are seeking a child. The musical fantasy film was directed by Rob Marshall using a screenplay James Lapine adapted from the Broadway musical of the same name. Disney’s “Into the Woods” opened in theaters on December 25, 2014.

In “Into the Woods,” the story of The Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) and their desire for a child is told. The Baker and his wife have been cursed by an evil witch (Meryl Streep) that is preventing them from having a child. The Witch offers to reverse the curse, but only if The Baker and his wife venture into the woods to collect a list of rare items. They take on the task.

In the woods, the couple encounters a number of characters, each of whom possesses an item they need to reverse the curse. They meet Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) and trade him beans—for his beanstalk—in exchange for his cow. Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), who is being hunted by The Wolf (Johnny Depp) has the red cape they need while Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy) possesses the hair of gold. Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) and her Prince (Chris Pine) are there too with Cinderella holding the magic slipper the couple needs. But through their adventures, the Baker and his wife discover more than these characters, but also a deeper understanding of responsibility and what happens when you wish for something.

“Into the Woods” joins a number of other great movies in theaters for Christmas 2014 including ”The Interview,” ”Unbroken,” ”American Sniper,” ”The Gambler,” ”The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” ”Annie,” ”Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb,” ”Mr. Turner,” "Life Partners," "Comet," "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1," and "Horrible Bosses 2.
