For those unfamiliar with the musical (which is most people, alas!), the trailer also outlines the central plot, i.e., The Witch sending The Baker (James Cordon) and The Baker’s Wife (Emily Blunt) on a quest to break a curse.

The entire musical builds on our collective understanding of fairy tales and how they operate, with curses, wishes, witches, and, yes, woods.
