Movie Info

In this live-action version of the classic fairy tale, Hansel (Hugh Pollard) and Gretel (Nicola Stapelton) are the offspring of an impoverished woodcutter (David Warner) and his wife (Emily Richard) who wander into the woods in this Grimm Brother's fairy tale. The trail of bread crumbs they leave to find their way back is eaten by birds, and the children are lured into the gingerbread house of the wicked witch (Cloris Leachman). ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Hansel and Gretel

This was not your average Hansel and Gretel. First off, they have their own mother, not a step-mother, and she is rather loving though slightly cranky about starving to death. Anyway, this version was a song and dance with cheery but also eerie moments. The food in this movie was mouth-watering! A nice take on the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale with especially great acting by the witch.
