More Detail:

SECRET MAGIC CONTROL AGENCY is a new animated comedy on Netflix for children that parodies the well-known Brothers Grimm fairytale “Hansel and Gretel,” with Gretel teaming up with her brother, Hansel, to find the King, who’s been kidnapped by someone using dark magic.

The movie opens as the King of the land sits down to eat his breakfast. However, he notices that the bountiful spread before him begins to move. Enchanted by magic, the food kidnaps the King and carries him to a witch’s island.

The Secret Magic Control Agency, which is in charge of keeping all magic users in check, is on the hunt to find the King and bring his captor to justice. One of the agency’s best agents is Gretel. She agrees to take on the missing King’s case, but to her dismay, her boss wants her to have a partner, her brother, Hansel.

However, Hansel doesn’t work for the agency. He’s a magician and con artist who uses illusions to trick people into buying his trinkets. Even so, Hansel has a big heart for those in need and especially his sister. Despite Gretel’s desire to complete the mission alone, Hansel joins her.

Tensions are high between the siblings, but they quickly uncover the truth about the King’s whereabouts. While on the trail, they find a potion room containing the same magic found at the crime scene, bringing the food to life. However, in their eagerness to get the potion for evidence, they destroy the potion room and are turned into children versions of themselves.

Because they aren’t recognized as children at the agency, they must use nothing but their wits to find and rescue the King. They discover that the plot to capture the King will allow a witch to control the entire land. Will Hansel and Gretel be willing to work together, or will their individual goals and pride get in the way of saving the Kingdom?

SECRET MAGIC CONTROL AGENCY is a unique reimagining of Hansel and Gretel, the Brothers Grimm fairytale. The movie is colorful and funny. It also has positive messages about the importance of forgiveness, working together to do good, and the value of family bonds. However, the movie has frequent depictions of magic and witchcraft throughout the movie. A scene with a fairy tale witch called Baba Yaga could frighten younger viewers. While there is witchcraft throughout the movie, dark magic is viewed as evil. That said, Movieguide® advises caution for SECRET MAGIC CONTROL AGENCY.
