Because director Rob Marshall prefers to use CGI or green screens as little as possible, Chris Pine had to stand in the background completely still and silent for two entire days of filming during Anna Kendrick’s performance of ‘On the Steps of the Palace’.
According to Anna Kendrick, the set pieces used for the woods were so big and realistic that she and Chris Pine actually got lost while on the sound stage and had to be rescued by a production assistant.
At a Q&A session after screening of the film, James Corden recalled an incident during rehearsals in which Meryl Streep jumped on a table and her foot got caught in her costume. She started falling backwards, head first, toward a concrete floor. Both Corden and director Rob Marshall froze in the fear that they were about to witness the death of Meryl Streep. However, Emily Blunt stepped in and caught Streep before she hit the floor.
Catherine Zeta-Jones, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penélope Cruz, Donna Murphy, Idina Menzel, Miranda Richardson, Kate Winslet, and Nicole Kidman were considered for the Witch.
This is the fourth time Lucy Punch has played a stepsister type role. Previous projects are Ella Enchanted, Cinderella 2000, and a BBC version of Cinderella.
Emily Blunt revealed that the “Any Moment” sequence was rehearsed when she was about three months into her pregnancy and it was filmed when she was about seven months pregnant. The change showed during filmed as Blunt noted that during the scene Chris Pine dips her during a dance and that Pine’s arms were shaking due to the change in weight.
In the movie, Cinderella has golden slippers; this is a reference to the original Grimm fairytale, in which the slippers are gold.
Though he is top-billed, Johnny Depp appears in nearly five minutes of the film.
During the establishing shot of the palace on the first night of the ball, a brief underscore excerpt is used of the “Night Waltz” from another Sondheim musical, “A Little Night Music.”
GRAVE ROBBING | Night In The Woods Part 5! :D
Yay new Night In The Woods video! xD I wish I had a lot to say like I usually do in my posts for these videos but honestly now I’m extremely confused about what’s going on thanks to glowing eyed kitty cat in Mae’s dream at the end of the video. I hope more is explained as the game goes on though. I did like seeing Mae and Bea’s graveyard adventure though, I love watching Mae hang out with the other characters in this game. ^_^ I hope that Seán hangs out with Angus next in the game because at this point in the game Mae hasn’t really hung out with him that much by himself. But yeah I’m still having fun with this game and this series these are my favorite video’s that Seán has been uploading lately. :)
