With Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters arriving in theaters on January 25th, Lionsgate Home Entertainment is preparing the DVD release of Hansel & Gretel: Warriors of Witchcraft.
Booboo Stewart stars. Apparently, he’s some kid from the Twilight films and, here, he’s sharing the screening with his sister Fivel Stewart.
The two play Jonah and Ella Mazer (Hansel and Gretel) were happy, normal teenagers sent to an elite boarding school. The Head Master, Sebastian, seems to know more about the brother and sister than they know about themselves. As both get to know their high school classmates, strange and frightening things begin to happen.
When their new friends explain that they are all descendant from powerful witches and that they’ve been waiting for Hansel and Gretel to join them and complete a new generation of the coven, both refuse to believe them. It’s not until Hansel discovers a message from his mother in an old leather-bound book of spells hidden in the school library, that he understands their true and dangerous destiny – slaying witches.
David DeCoteau directs, so you know what you’re getting there. The film hits DVD January 22nd.
