INTO THE WOODS is a musical fantasy about a baker who is sent into a forest by a witch to retrieve a number of items that will lift a spell; in the forest, he encounters various famous fairy tale characters

Violence

Occasional violence includes scenes in which a woman cuts off parts of her two adult daughters' feet so they can squeeze into some shoes. One of the daughters loses a toe and the other part of a heel; the two women scream in pain and one of them faints, although the actual violence takes place off-screen. A wolf is stabbed in the stomach to set free a girl and her grandmother, whom he has eaten; the stabbing occurs off-screen and the two victims emerge unharmed. A giant is also killed by a boy, who throws a coin that strikes its forehead. There are some other deaths, but these generally occur off-screen.

Threat

There are several scenes in which the characters are threatened by seen and unseen forces. Giants with loud booming voices threaten various characters, shaking trees and the ground with heavy footsteps. A wolf in human form also menaces a young girl. One of the main characters is a witch who occasionally briefly threatens various characters.

There is one use of very mild bad language ('God').
