There are a serious number of reasons to get excited about Disney's adaptation of the musical "Into The Woods"—from the hardcore star-studded cast to the fact that it's a mash-up of different Grimm's fairy tales. However, in the film's first trailer released today, the musical seems to be completely lacking any sort of singing but the characters sure do whisper "I wish" a lot. Maybe they don't want to scare off any folks who hate musicals?

It's based on Stephen Sondheim's beloved Broadway musical that features familiar characters from fables who make wishes and have to suffer the consequences. They've got a witch (Meryl Streep), Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) and her prince (Chris Pine), the Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt), Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy) and her prince (Billy Magnussen), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), and the Wolf (Johnny Depp).

The film opens in theaters on December 25, 2014.
