A young prince is getting a tour of his soon to be castle by one of the kings faithful servants. They go through every room except for one room, which the king had told Old Faithful Johannes not to show the prince this room because, it has a picture of a golden woman. The reason he shouldn't see the painting is because, he would fall in love with the person in the painting and try to find her which she is cursed so if anyone "steals" her they would be cursed.
After the prince saves the golden queen from her castle he plans to marry her the next day but, faithful Johannes hears three crows saying,, "It's to bad all of the things going to happen to them due to the princesses curse". Johannes hears all of the things going to happen so he does everything he can to prevent her from dying. The king doesn't know what he is doing but, trust Johannes, until he took it too far and crashes the kings wedding so Johannes is executed. The king kept Johannes body because he regretted killing him. One day after the king has Hansel and Gretal they're playing next to Johannes body and the king is told he kill his children to return Johannes back to life, so he kills his children.
Somehow the children come back alive but, they realize what their parents had done so, they run off in the middle of the night. The first house they go by the woman inside tried to cook em' for lunch. The second house was a normal family with seven sons but, the parents have always wanted a daughter so they tell Hansel and Gretal they can stay. Since all the parents wanted was a daughter they tricked their seven sons into death to let Gretal get all the attention, the children realize what has happen so they run off in the night into the mountains to find the crows that the seven sons souls are trapped in.
After finding the sons crows and returning them to life, Hansel and Gretal think there are no good parents in Grimm. So they go into a forest full of life and light, then start to build a campfire and a tent. The children promised to a magical tree to not hurt any life in the forest and would live on the berries in a bush. Hansel starts to grow bored of only eating berries so, he kills a rabbit for his dinner. Gretal gets mad at him and he promises to stop. The next day he does the same but, doesn't stop at one animal. Then he starts to live like an animal and look like one after eating all the life in the forest. A group of hunters finds him and takes him as a animal a very odd animal.
When Hansel is brought to the hunters king they skin him to find a little boy not an animal, surprised at this the king and queen take Hansel home. The king and queen had never had any child or anything so they treated Hansel very well and let him almost whatever he wanted. Every night the king went out to gamble money with the same people every night and always wins. Until a new person comes but looked homeless, the king bet all his money to win. He lost to the new guy which happened to be the devil (which the king didn't know). The king begged until the devil said he could trade the money for Hansel, the king said yes. The next day two demons come to pick Hansel up to bring to the gates of Hell. Hansel meets many cursed people by the devil on his way. Once in Hell, Hansel escapes into the devils castle, Hansel tricks the devil and makes the devil get Hansel out.
