Curious kids Hansel and Gretel are no strangers to movie screens, and with an equal opportunity name flip they’re having another go in upcoming horror flick Gretel & Hansel.

Starring It‘s Sophia Lillis as Gretel and the Borg Queen herself, Alice Krige, this one appears to take the simple fairy tale of two candy-loving kids and a witch to darker places, with the two children here desperate to find their next meal. But the woods just may not be the best place to find it…

Gretel & Hansel is set for a US release in January 2020. We await a confirmed Australian date.
