Diehard musical theater fans have been skeptical about a lot of the choices that went into the film adaptation of "
Into the Woods," but Meryl Streep as the Witch wasn't one of them. This featurette offers a sneak peek at Streep in action as she sings "Stay With Me" in a moving scene with Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy).

Granted, it doesn't really make up for what we've seen of Johnny Depp as the Wolf so far - that whiskery mustache! - but it's smart to give the Sondheim heads a slice of Streep to assuage at least some of their worries. And if that's not enough to entice viewers, there's always the costumes; between Chris Pine's fancy velvet pants and Billy Magnussen's leather trousers, there's a little something for everyone in these woods.

"Into the Woods" co-stars Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Tracey Ullman, Lilla Crawford, James Corden, Christine Baranski, and Lucy Punch. It opens on December 25.
