Secret Magic Control Agency


A Russian-produced animated film (loosely) based on the Grimm brothers' tale of Hansel and Gretel, with the two siblings somewhat estranged, the latter working for a magic control agency in a world where magicians are registered and tracked, and the former working as a non-magical sideshow magician, with the two thrown together, spending a significant chunk of the film de-aged, as they attempt to fight an evil baker who kidnaps the king, brainwashes him with special cookies, and attempts to take over the kingdom. Was actually surprisingly good, sort of like James Bond in a fantasy setting, and there are occasional traditional-animated segments to emphasize some key points of the story and before the ending credits.
