Lilla Crawford Replaces Sophia Grace in 'Into the Woods'

Broadway actress Lilla Crawford will be playing the the role of Little Red Riding Hood in the movie musical Into the Woods, a part previously believed to be given to television personality Sophia Grace Brownlee.

Disney has confirmed that Lilla, who most recently originated the title role in the Broadway revival of Annie, will be playing the “smart and spunky girl who journeys into the woods, finding unexpected adventures along the way.”

Last month, it was reported that Sophia Grace, who is known for her appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, would be playing the role.

“Sophia Grace is starring in the movie ‘Into the Woods’ w/ Meryl Streep! The role of a lifetime. Also big for Sophia,” Ellen DeGeneres had tweeted.
