The animated fairy tale sequel will be skipping to grandmother's house on Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D this August!

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay says they are preparing 'Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil' for Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D on August 16.

Directed by Mike Disa and produced by Kanbar Entertainment, the team that brought you the original 'Hoodwinked!' film, 'Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil' is based on the beloved classic children’s fairy tale Red Riding Hood.

The sequel features the voices of an all-star ensemble cast including Hayden Panettiere, Glenn Close, JoanCusack, Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Patrick Warburton, David Alan Grier, Andy Dick, Brad Garrett, Martin Short, Heidi Klum, Wayne Newton, Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong.

Here’s what the critics have to say about 'Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil': “Hilarious!” (Nell Minow The Chicago Sun-Times) “Innovative! A superb sequel and entertaining treat for the whole family.” (Judith Manigault, Family Media) “A procession of pop-culture send-ups delivered at light speed, interspersed with affirmative messages about exercise, proper diet and – so refreshing in this kind of movie – girl power.” (The New York Times).

Fracturing fairy tales and pop culture with good-natured glee, 'Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil' takes viewers on a rollicking rollercoaster ride combining edge-of-the-seat adventure with classic, zany cartoon antics.

The releases will come in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack as well as a Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack with 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: The Voices of Hoodwinked Too! featurette; storyboard sequences; production artwork; music videos; and video game applications.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray/DVD is $34.99 and the Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy is $39.99.
