Storyline

The two foolish little pigs escort Red Riding Hood on a short cut through the woods, against the advice of their bricklayer brother. When they encounter the wolf, Red runs ahead to granny's house and the pigs run home. The wolf gets to granny's house first and scares her into a closet, then dresses as granny. Alerted by his brothers, the smart pig arrives just as granny has pulled Red into the closet with her and takes care of the wolf with the help of some hot coals and popcorn.

You think the two pigs would have learned SOMETHING!
17 January 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film is a follow-up to Disney's enormously successful short "The Three Little Pigs". Since the film won the Oscar and was adored by audiences, it's not at all surprising that the company would bring back these characters.

The plot of "The Big Bad Wolf" is an odd mash-up--mixing the story of "Little Red Riding Hood" with "The Three Little Pigs". When the film begins, Red is on her way to Grandma's house and she stops by to see her friends the Pigs. Unfortunately, the two dumb pigs from the previous film are STILL very stupid and they advise Red to take the shortcut through the dangerous forest. They vow to protect Red in case the Wolf shows--and when he does, they are no help whatsoever. So, it's up to the industrious brother to come to their rescue--with predictable results.

While the film clearly lacks the originality and charm of the first film, it is a worthy follow-up and worth seeing.
