Meryl Streep as The Witch in 'Into the Woods' - First Photo!

Check out your first look at Meryl Streep as The Witch in the highly anticipated movie musical Into the Woods (via Entertainment Weekly).

The 64-year-old three-time Oscar-winning actress is playing the role originated by Bernadette Peters in the 1987 Broadway production.

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 (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.

The film also stars Johnny Depp as The Wolf, Chris Pine as Cinderella’s Prince, Billy Magnussen as Rapunzel’s Prince, and Christine Baranski as Cinderella’s Stepmother.
