To save money, the Cannon Movie Tales films were shot two or three at-a-time. Hansel and Gretel was shot simultaneously with Sleeping Beauty (1987). This wasn't the best of situations in that often the two crews would be competing for the limited equipment, costumes, and sets. See more »

This is another of the beautiful Cannon Movie Tales,that aired on the Disney Channel starting in the late 80's and on ito mid-90's.This one is beautifully photographed.The songs are adapted from the opera so they are not new but are still beautiful.I saw this at about 7:00 on a Friday night on The Disney Channel.I fell in love with it and could not find it anywhere.Luckely,Amazon had a copy.It has not lost its charm.Cloris Leachman is the most evil witch ever filmed.She gave me the creeps.This film is ideal for family viewing.Little children will be frightened so make shure you are there for a person to lean on.
