LOS ANGELES, July 31 (UPI) -- Disney's Into the Woods released its first trailer Thursday.

The preview teases the first glimpse of The Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt), along with fairy tale characters Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Prince Charming (Chris Pine), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), The Wolf (Johnny Depp), The Witch (Meryl Streep), Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy) and Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) from Jack and the Beanstalk.
