Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil is a 2011 sequel to 2005's Hoodwinked!, directed by Mike Disa and was released on April 29, 2011. It was also released in 3D.

The film was written by Cory Edwards, Todd Edwards and Tony Leech, who also wrote the previous Hoodwinked! film. Most of the cast reprised their roles, with the exceptions of Anne Hathaway and Jim Belushi.

In this film Red (Hayden Panettiere) is in training with a mysterious group called the Sisters of the Hood and must team with Wolf (Patrick Warburton) to rescue Hansel and Gretel (Bill Hader and Amy Poehler) and Granny from an evil witch.

Red Riding Hood is training in the group of Sister Hoods, when she and the Wolf are called to examine the sudden mysterious disappearance of Hansel and Gretel.

After a long adventure, Red and Wolf arrive at the witch's house, only to discover that Hansel and Gretel tricked them. Hansel and Gretel are soon defeated.



Hoodwinked Too! was under production at Blue Yonder Films, the makers of the first Hoodwinked movie, from June 2008 to January 2010. The film was originally going to be released January 15, 2010, however in December 2009 it was announced that the release date would be pushed back to February at the earliest. A Weinstein Company executive stated that some of the reasons were so that the company could focus its resources on promoting Youth in Revolt which would be released January 8 of that year and so that they could perform some tweaks on the film's animation. He also stated that the Weinstein Company was in the final stages of a marketing deal with a fast food chain.[3] Burger King released toys for the film in January 2010, shortly after the film's initial release date had passed, even though a new release date had not yet been set.[4] In March 2010 it was revealed that Kanbar Entertainment was suing The Weinstein Company for delaying the film's release, for not making contributions to monthly production accounts after February 2009, and for not consulting them about a release strategy. Kanbar Entertainment also stated that The Weinstein Company did not respond to proposed changes to the film, even though Kanbar Entertainment had final authority on production decisions.[5] A theatrical poster and a trailer were released February 2011, and a release date of April 29, 2011, was announced.[6]

Neither Anne Hathaway nor Jim Belushi reprised their roles from the original film as Red and Kirk the woodsman respectively.

Reception Critical

Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil was negatively reviewed. On the film-critics aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes, as of May 2011, the film has garnered a rating of 11% across 57 reviews.[7]

In his review for The New York Times, Andy Webster criticized the film's animation, stating "the images don't remotely approach the nuance of, say, Ice Age, let alone anything from the mack daddy, Pixar. And while it seems there's no getting away from this marketing aesthetic, the resemblance at times to a video game is far, far too acute. The Shrek films — in visual terms — have done this kind of thing better."[8]Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune gave the film one star and said it "leeches the fun clean out of the first Hoodwinked."[9] In contrast, Nell Minow of the Chicago Sun-Times gave Hoodwinked Too! three stars, praising the film's strong heroines and the script, stating "once again what we think we know about fairy-tale heroines, villains, mean girls, old ladies, witches and happy endings are deliciously turned upside down and inside out."[10]

Box office

Made on a budget of $30 million,[1][2] the film has grossed $9,184,715 as of May 17, 2011.[2]
