Coming in the 2014 and 2015 are a few neat movies from Disney. Have you heard about the craziness they've come up with? Well, it's good crazy.

Walt Disney Studios is turning Ella (Cinderella) and Into the Woods into movies. Wow. Classic Cinderella, we don't need to recap this story. We all know it. It's a classic! They're filming it in London already and the whole thing is directed by Academy Award®-nominee Kenneth Branagh (“Jack Ryan,” “Thor”). This star-studded film will include Lily James as Cinderella, Richard Madden as the Prince, Cate Blanchett as the stepmother Lady Tremaine, Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother, and Holliday Grainger and Sophie McShera as Ella’s stepsisters Anastasia and Drisella.

I'm curious as to how this one turns out. I am quite curious as to where they're filming in England besides London though. Sadly, we'll have to wait until March 13, 2015.
Meryl Streep: Into the Woods
At least we only have to wait until Christmas 2014 for Into The Woods. Guess they seem to like England quite a bit lately as this one has also started filming in England.
“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.
You can expect an all star cast in this movie too including:
-Meryl Streep, the Witch who wishes to reverse a curse so that her beauty may be restored.
-Emily Blunt, the Baker’s Wife, a childless woman who longs to be a mother.
-James Corden, the Baker, a hard-working man who desperately wants to start a family.
-Anna Kendrick, Cinderella
-Chris Pine, Cinderella’s Prince
-Johnny Depp is the big, bad Wolf
-Lilla Crawford is Little Red Riding Hood.
-Daniel Huttlestone, Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk, with Tracey Ullman playing Jack’s Mother.
-MacKenzie Mauzy is Rapunzel
-Billy Magnussen is Rapunzel's Prince.

This musical will incorporate some of the music from the original stage show and also include brand new songs. Exciting, isn't it?
