Little Red Riding Hood is a major character from the film Into the Woods and is portrayed by Lilla Crawford. She is based on the protagonist from the fairy tale of the same name of Charles Perrault's fairy tale, and her grandmother's fate is closer to the original Charles Perrault story than the Brothers Grimm adaptation.
Into The Woods
At the beginning of Into The Woods, Little Red Riding Hood is seen stealing sweets from the Bakery and she wishes, that it's not for her, it's for her granny in the woods. She asks for a loaf of bread to bring her poor old hungry granny in the woods. Before she takes a bit out of the cookie she stole.
Next, she is seen paying Baker as he hands her a loaf of bread. Shen then tells them that it's time to go, she hates to leave, but she has to into the woods to begin her journey. She tells them that she has to go into the woods and through the trees to where she is expected and into the woods to Grandmother's house (she says with a mouthful of bread that she stole). The Baker's Wife asks her is she's certain she knows her way. Little Red Riding Hood states that they way is clear, the light is good, and that she has no fear like know one should and that the woods are just trees and the trees are just wood and she sort of hates to ask for basket as she helps herself to some bread, which the Baker's Wife gladly gives her and tells her not to stray and be late. The Baker asks if she plans on buying on the sweets, but the Baker's Wife dismisses it and sends Little Red Riding Hood on her way, but not before stealing another sweet.
Little Red Riding Hood then skips into the woods and down the dell to bring some bread to Granny who is sick in bed.
Her path took her through an ancient graveyard and on towards the forest’s edge.
