Based on the much-loved children’s book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake, Revolting Rhymes takes classic fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood, then mixes them together and serves them with a mischievous twist.
The first film sees young Snow White and Red Riding Hood become lifelong friends as Snow White takes on the might of the wicked Queen, while Red is called home to deal with a pair of hungry wolves—one who’s eaten her grandma and dressed in her clothes, while the other can’t help himself from eating some unsuspecting pigs. In the second film Jack grows up with his heart set on next-door neighbor Cindy. She has her eye turned by the eligible prince at the ball, and Jack gets distracted by a giant beanstalk at the bottom of his garden. Will they find true love?
