By Jerry Portwood
We saw some behind the scenes shots the other day of Emily Blunt (The Baker’s Wife), Billy Magnussen (Rapunzel’s Prince), James Corden (The Baker), Chris Pine (Cinderella’s Prince), Christine Baranski (Cinderella’s Stepmother), and Anna Kendrick (Cinderella) the other day (check those out below. But this "official" first look at Meryl Streep as The Witch in the long-awaited film adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim/James Lapine musical has us beside ourself.

What's next? We need to see some Johnny Depp as the Wolf shots to make us whole again! Since we must wait until Christmas 2014 until this piece of candy is delivered to our stocking with care.
