A coy early teaser for "Into the Woods" released back in July left some moviegoers wanting -- dare we say wishing for -- a deeper look at Disney's upcoming adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tales.

Now a new trailer (watch it above) has obliged with clips of Meryl Streep singing as the Witch, Johnny Depp stepping out of the shadows as the Wolf and Chris Pine not exactly living up to his name as Prince Charming.

Streep makes a door-busting entrance and sings a few bars of "Stay With Me," proving once again to the Meryl Nation that the 18-time Oscar nominee can do no wrong. Depp, whose zoot-suited take on the Big Bad Wolf has perplexed many fans in recent weeks, is seen waylaying Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford).

Meanwhile, Pine's caddish Prince Charming tells a disappointed Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), "I was raised to be charming, not sincere."

As the trailer underscores, "Into the Woods" both draws from and upends a number of classic fairy tales, while also tying them together with an original story about a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) who have been cursed by a witch.

Directed by Rob Marshall ("Chicago," "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"), "Into the Woods" is set for release Christmas Day.
