Gretel & Hansel Puts a Horrifying New Spin on a Classic Tale

Despite already battling Pennywise, It star Sophia Lillis has a new, equally monstrous evil being fond of chowing down on children to contend with in the trailer for Gretel and Hansel, which appears to be a horrifying twist on the classic tale.

Like in the original “grim” fairy tale, Lillis plays Gretel, who leads her younger brother (Samuel Leakey) into the woods in search of food and work when the pair become desperate. Unfortunately, their journey brings them straight into the ominous home of a witch named Holda (Alice Krige), who seems intent on having them for dinner (or something equally freaky).

With echoes of 2015’s The Witch, the horror film from director Oz Perkins (The Blackcoat’s Daughter) is already primed to take up real estate in our nightmares. Watch the trailer above before Gretel and Hansel wanders into theaters on Jan. 31.

Before Playing Sophie on This Is Us, Amanda Leighton Was on a Show With Justin Hartley

It seems like Sophie and Kevin always find a way back to each other on This Is Us. In the latest episode, we learned a lot about the former couple’s past, and honestly, it made us want them to get back together even more. While Logan Shroyer has made several appearances as young Kevin over the past four seasons, you’re probably wondering about who plays young Sophie.


Actress Amanda Leighton made her first appearance as Kevin’s young love all the way back in season one, but it appears like she’ll have a pretty big arc in the upcoming episode, “Storybook Love.” In addition to her recurring role on This Is Us, Leighton has appeared on Make It or Break It, Pretty Little Liars, Rosewood, and most recently, The Fosters.

Interestingly enough, she also appeared on CBS’s soap opera The Young and the Restless just like Justin Hartley (aka adult Kevin). Leighton had a recurring role as Raven from 2013-2014 and Hartley starred as Adam Newman from 2014-2016, though their characters never interacted onscreen. Talk about a crazy coincidence!
