Trailer Time: Into the Woods

The first teaser trailer for Disney's Into the Woods is up online.  I know that there have been a lot of complaints about how the original show has to be toned down in its darker elements to be suitable for Disney dollars.  But I actually think that this is a good thing.

I love Into the Woods, but it is, ultimately, an ode to moral relativism.  If they can take the same basic elements and sidestep that ethical landmine, they may actually have a hit.  They are trying to do what Les Miserables did by opening on Christmas Day.  But that fits because that movie is all about how sacrificial love helps us see the face of God.  If Into the Woods keeps its central theme, the message would be that life has no inherent meaning and that traditional concepts of right and wrong are mere fairy tales.

Merry Christmas.

Anyway, here is the trailer
