Hansel and Gretel: Plot and what to expect?
The plot of the film is a smooth flow and will follow very closely to the source work. This new film on the renowned story will be very different, however, from the ‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’, which was more of a dark action-comedy.
Gretel and Hansel, however, will be more of a horror-centric film and will see Gretel in the lead role.
It follows her as she leads her little brother Hansel into the woods for food and water, only to stumble upon “a nexus of terrifying evil.”
