Default Into the Woods Animated - Voice Cast

'Into the Woods' is still one of my favorite musical plays, but if I ever pictured it as a film I imagined it as an animated one, just for the subject matter. But now that it's finally a movie, and a live-action one, I thought I might just go public with my ideas about a VA cast. If there's anyone else out there who know this show and these characters, I'd be glad to hear your ideas or opinions. So -

The Witch - Cree Summer
She's an amazing singer, and if you've heard any of her music, she has a real witchy kind of energy to her.

The Baker - Dan Castellaneta
He's also a better-than average singer, and Homer aside, he's also good at playing meek male types.

The Baker's Wife - Jodie Benson or Jennifer Hale
You might automatically link JH with Cinderella, but I'd like to hear her try a more down-to-earth kind of fairy tale woman.

Cinderella - Same as Above
I'd prefer to hear Jodie do this, partly because she has the voice, but also it would be nice to hear her play this ambiguous take on the princess type. Both of them could do either character.

Red Riding Hood - Tara Strong
Awesome singer, great with feisty little girls.

Jack - Neil Patrick Harris
He can still do juvenile voices. I'd say Jason Marsden, but I don't think he'd be up to the songs.

Jack's Mother - Tress Macneille or Susanne Blakeslee

The Wolf - Jim Cummings
No need to explain.

The Princes - Rob Paulsen and Jeff Bennett
Both experienced singers, would love to hear the two of them hamming it up over 'Agony.'

The Mysterious Man/Narrator - David Ogden Stiers
Could do those parts blindfolded.

The Stepmother - Tress Macneille

Florinda & Lucinda (The Stepsisters) Tara Strong and Grey DeLisle

Granny/The Giantess - June Foray

Interesting idea. I've performed this play many times. it seems you forgot the Steward, Cinderella's Father and Mother.

I wondered if anyone would get that.

But if this were an animated film, I'd imagine some of the actors could double up for the smaller parts. The actual movie left out Cinderella's Father altogether!
