This version of Little Red follows Brothers Grimm’s story: both Little Red and Gramma get eaten by the big, bad wolf, but they are miraculously rescued by a huntsman or a woodcutter who open the wolf’s belly. This ending is more suitable for younger audiences than older versions with darker themes and more gruesome endings. The moral of the story is clear: children should obey their parents’ advice.
