About Hansel & Gretel

As a classic tale, Hansel & Gretel has been known widely to kids and adults alike. They were unfortunate siblings who were lured into the gingerbread house set by a witch as a trap for young ones.

She meant to eat them, but with wit and bravery, they fought the evil hag, killed her, and broke free. Then comes the 2013 Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, a live action movie which depicts and interprets the adult life of both siblings as professional witch hunters.

In this adaptation, Hansel is portrayed by Jeremy Renner, while his sister Gretel is played by Gemma Arterton. Both come across a mysterious case in a random town where people are believed to be killed by witches. What they discover next lead them to darkest night of their past.
