New Site for ‘Hoodwinked Too!’ — Exclusive!!

posted by Nell Minow

HW2_1sht_WOLF_mech07_783px.jpgI’m really looking forward to “Hoodwinked Too: Hood vs. Evil,” opening on April 29. I loved the original Hoodwinked for its very clever four-part intersecting narrative from the point of view of the characters and for its excellent visuals and voices, including Anne Hathaway as Red Riding Hood and Glenn Close as Granny. It was irreverent without being snarky and one of the best animated films of 2005. As my friend and fellow critic Dustin Putman said:

Kids of all ages will be thrilled by the breakneck pace, the brightly developed and performed characters, and the lovely animation that mixes modern computer-generated technology with an old-fashioned style and feel that befits its fairy tale origins. This latter elements personifies the forested setting as a memorable character all its own, and makes the most of its set-pieces, including a rickety wild ride on a roller-coaster-like mountain track and a runaway cable car.

So I was thrilled to get a peek at the upcoming sequel with the new Hoodwinked Too: Hood vs. Evil website. Patrick Warburton and Glenn Close return as the Wolf and Granny and new voice talent includes “Heroes'” Hayden Panettiere as Red and “SNL’s” Bill Hader and Amy Poehler as Hansel and Gretel. The website just went live and so now you can check out Red & Granny and their friends in action, with clips from the film, the trailer, and goodies like wallpapers, icons, posters and more. And you can follow Twitchy all through the site. Coming soon — screensavers and, best of all, some of Granny’s very own recipes to try at home. And of course you can follow the movie on Facebook and Twitter. Be sure to check it out!
