The better to hear you with, my dear.
~ The Wolf's last words.

The Wolf is a supporting antagonist in the 2014 Disney film Into the Woods.

He was portrayed by Johnny Depp, who also portrayed John Shooter in Secret Window, Sweeney Todd in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, a version of Tony Shepard in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, John Dillinger in Public Enemies, Gellert Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them series, and Lanfranco Cassetti in Murder on the Orient Express.


He first appears when Little Red Riding Hood was going to her grandmother's house. The Wolf then starts singing "Hello, Little Girl" while trying to get her basket, but was unsuccessful in doing so.

The Wolf later appears in Red Riding Hood's grandmother's cottage in disguise as Red Riding Hood's grandmother.

After the Wolf eats Red Riding Hood, the Baker came by and used a knife to kill the wolf to save Red Riding Hood and her grandmother, and then skinned the Wolf; after giving the Baker her red coat, she then used the Wolf's skin as a new coat.
