Tim Burton's "Hansel and Gretel" is a live-action and stop-motion animated film short featuring East Asian 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

This is Tim Burton's Disney Channel Halloween film short that only aired once. It combines live action and stop-motion, making for a creepy adventure into the woods. Hansel and Gretel is listed as one of Tim Burton's first directional experiments and unfortunately it's not one of his best, the movie has a very decent animation at first which was nice and something that Burton later used on some of his movies like 'Corpse Bride' unfortunately the film turns into live action next with japanese actors speaking english and The Witch looks like a mix between Michael Jackson and Ozzy Osbourne. Definitely even the coolest directors at times make one or two really really bad projects. (0/10)
