Into The Woods (2014)

Genre: Adventure

Once upon a time, in a far off kingdom,

there lay a small village

at the edge of the woods.

I Wish

And in this village...

More than anything

...lived a young maiden...

More than life

More than jewels

...a carefree young lad...

I Wish

More than life

...and a childless baker...

I Wish

...With his Wife.

- More than anything

- More than the moon

I Wish

The King is giving a Festival

More than life

- I wish

- I wish to go to the Festival

More than riches

And the Ball

I wish my cow would give us some milk

- More than anything

- I wish we had a child

Please, pal

I want a child

I wish to go to the Festival

I wish you'd give us

some milk or even cheese

I Wish

You wish to go to the Festival?

The poor girl's parents had died.

You, Cinderella, the Festival?

You wish to go to the Festival?

The Festival? The King's Festival?

And now

she lived with her stepmother.

The Festival?

Who had two daughters of her own.

- Look at your nails

- Look at your dress

- People would laugh at you

- Nevertheless

She still wants to go to the Festival

And dance before the Prince

All three were beautiful of face,

but vile and black of heart.

The young lad had no father,

and his mother...

I Wish

...well, she was at her wits' end.

I wish my son were not a fool

I wish my house was not a mess

I wish the cow was full of milk

I wish the walls were full of gold

I wish a lot of things

What in heaven's name

are you doing with the cow

inside the house?

I thought if he were nice and warm,

he might produce some milk.

It's a she!

How many times do I

have to tell you that

only "she"s can give milk?

And then, there was a hungry little girl,

who always wore a red cape.


I Wish

It's not for me

It's for my granny in the woods

A loaf of bread


To bring my poor old

hungry granny In the woods

Just a loaf of bread



If you can pick up these lentils,

and finish your chores in time,

then you may go to the Ball with us.

Come along, ladies.

Yes, Mother.

Good luck.

Come, little birds

Down from the eaves and the leaves

Over fields, out of castles and ponds

No, squeeze, pal

Quick, little birds

Flick through the ashes

Pick and peck, but swiftly

Sift through the ashes

Into the pot


What are you doing?

Stop your pretending!

Now listen to me well, son.

Milky-White must be taken to market.

Mother, no!

He's the best cow in the world!

Was. She has been dry for weeks now.

We've no food or money

and no choice but to sell her.

But Milky-White's my best friend!

Look at her!

There are bugs on her dugs

There are flies in her eyes

There's a lump on her rump

Big enough to be a hump

- But, Mother...

- We've no time to sit and dither

While her withers wither with her

And no one keeps a cow for a friend

Sometimes I wonder

what's going on in that head of yours.

Into the woods, it's time to go

I hate to leave, I have to, though

Into the woods, it's time and so

I must begin my journey

Into the woods and through the trees

To where I am expected, ma'am

Into the woods,

to Grandmother's house

- Stop it.

- I can't just...

Into the woods,

to Grandmother's house

Are you certain of your way?

The way is clear

The light is good

I have no fear

Nor no one should

The woods are just trees

The trees are just wood

I sort of hate to ask it

But do you have a basket?

Yes, we do.

I don't suppose

you're planning on buying any of these?

Now, don't stray and be late, all right?

You might save

some of those sweets for Granny.

- Oh, my...

- Just leave it.

She's a thief!

Into the woods and down the dell
