Storyline

Contrary to popular belief, this film contains no animation. Tim Burton's "Hansel and Gretel" is a live action film short featuring Japanese actors and striking set designs reminiscent of his later work in films such as "Beetle Juice" and "Edward Scissorhands". While this film was created during Tim Burton's employment at Disney Feature Animation, his stop-motion work began with the short film "Vincent" and continues today with the recent "Tim Burton's The Corpse Bride". His 2D animation work while with Disney included "The Fox and the Hound" and "The Black Cauldron". Written by Jesse Haskell, The Walt Disney Company

Burton's Experiment
27 July 2000 | by (Tempio Pausania, ITALIA) – See all my reviews

A good experiment for Tim Burton. I think was an interessant and sweet version of the novel and originally was andepisode for Faerie Tale Theatre. But it's very nice, the gus star Hanse and Gretal are kung fu boys and the witch is a man with a black suit. Very nice, and very funny!!!!
