Tim Burton’s Long-Lost Hansel and Gretel is Unburied

 

By usfndns / / Working at Disney 24 years old in 1982, Tim Burton created a bizarre adaptation of Hansel and Gretel. The film aired only once on the Disney Channel at 10:30 p.m. on Halloween 1983. For years, there were rumors that Hansel and Gretel was lost, or even that it never existed—10:30 p.m. wasn’t exactly the children’s network’s prime slot. But it was dusted off at last for the Museum of Modern Art’s 2009 retrospective on Burton, and this week it’s finally surfaced online. here
