Disney's film adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods just entered production a week ago, and there's already a first look at Meryl Streep as the desperate and terrifying witch in the woods.
The three-time Oscar winner, 64, looks to have landed another illustrious role, as she's seen decked out in an intense and frightening costume. A tangled mane of stark white hair, ratty, curled claws and a tattered witch's wardrobe round out the effect, successfully making her look quite intimidating.
Streep is playing a cursed witch who is out to get the curse reversed so she can regain her youth and beauty.
Into the Woods is a modern take on some of the Grimm Brother's most beloved fairy tales, including Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel.
Into the Woods is scheduled to hit theaters December 25, 2014.
