Meryl Streep Sings Incredibly Well Because She's Meryl Streep

Is there anything Meryl Streep can't do? Based on the brand-new, behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming musical Into the Woods, no, there isn't.
Adapted from Stephen Sondheim's legendary Broadway fairy-tale mash-up, Into the Woods is one of the most anticipated films of the fall, thanks to a star-studded cast, with Streep at the helm. In it, the three-time Oscar winner plays a witch, but not just any witch — a singing one. And, if our first look at her performance is any indication, this witch sings good.

It's been six long years since Streep showed off her vocal skills in Mamma Mia! We get the impression that with her new role, she wanted to remind us that she's Meryl Streep and she can do anything. Consider that 19th Oscar nod a lock-in.
Watch Streep and co-stars Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, and Chris Pine discuss the film in the featurette below. Into the Woods hits theaters Christmas Day.
