Watch Anna Kendrick Sing 'On the Steps of the Palace' in 'Into the Woods'

Pin It
We just got a little more excited for Into the Woods to hit theaters.

In this sneak peek clip from the upcoming fantasy flick, Anna Kendrick, who plays Cinderella, sings "On the Steps of the Palace," after she attempts to run down a flight of a palace's stairs and gets stuck.

Back in October, Anna dished on her performance in the upcoming film, telling Playbill, "I had never considered myself a Cinderella. I always thought of myself as Little Red because I'm a little weirdo...So playing Cinderella, not only did I have to wrap my brain around being the sweet ingénue, but I had to get my voice ready to be more sweet and light and more of a true soprano, which I've never been before."

"I had a really great and unique experience with Sondheim because he was changing the lyrics slightly to 'Steps of the Palace,' so I got to work closely with him on that," she continued. "And, by closely, I mean, he was around giving me new lyrics, and I stood there and tried not to mess them up! That was obviously really exciting to realize that the material was still living and breathing and that I got to be a part of a song that was changing for the film adaptation."

This isn't the first time the actress has shown off her vocal talents in a film. We first heard Anna sing in Pitch Perfect, when she won the movie's fans over with her often-imitated "Cups" performance.

Into the Woods, which also stars Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep, hits theaters Christmas Day.
