Disney has released the first photo of Meryl Streep as the witch in Into the Woods, its upcoming adaptation of the Broadway musical.
The actress is unrecognizable in a long, matted gray wig and makeup designed to make her look, well, witch-like.
The movie, a modern twist on several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, explores the consequences of the quests of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel — all tied together by an original story involving a baker, his wife, and the witch who cast a spell on them.
In the film, Streep’s character is looking to reverse a curse so that her beauty may be restored.
Into the Woods, which is in production in England, is directed by Rob Marshall, and features a star-studded cast that also includes Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, and Johnny Depp.
Composer Stephen Sondheim is contributing a brand new song to the movie, which hits theaters Dec. 25, 2014.
