Meryl Streep Sings ‘She’ll Be Back' in Deleted Scene from 'Into the Woods'!

When Into the Woods was still under development, composer Stephen Sondheim wrote a whole new song just for Meryl Streep (as the Witch) to sing in the movie.

Eventually, the song and scene got cut, but those who buy the Blu-ray or Digital HD will get to see it!

Whatever...wait, what?

Disney Movies Anywhere did release a sneak peek at the deleted scene featuring the song. But as director Rob Marshall said: he, Streep, Sondheim and James Lapine all decided that the movie was stronger without the song.

My thoughts: incredible! As a huge Meryl Streep fan, of course I appreciate it just for her performance. But even more so, the way Streep brings out the subtext – the Witch’s longing and uncertainty, trying to convince herself – really blows me away. She’s an amazing actress, as always, and this scene just proves it again.

What are your thoughts?
