Disney previews films at D23 Expo

InsideTheMagic posted this story about the upcoming movies that Disney previewed at the D23 Expo.
The biggest presentation of the 2013 D23 Expo was held by the Walt Disney Studios on Saturday, August 10 to a packed D23 Arena crowd, filled to capacity in anticipation of celebrity guests and plenty of surprises.
One of the movies previewed was Into The Woods, based on a story written by James Lapine and music by Stephen Sondheim. The play was first performed in San Diego in 1986.
Then the “Into the Woods” musical cast was officially announced: Meryl Streep as the witch, Johnny Depp as the big bad wolf, along with Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, and Emily Blunt.
 Looking at known upcoming movies we see that Johhny Depp will be playing the BBW, Captain Jack and the Mad Hatter.  Quite a range.  There might be a common thread of insanity depending on how the BBW is portrayed.
