Hayden Panettiere's 'Kick-Butt' Cartoon Character

In the animated feature 'Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil,' Hayden Panettiere reprises her role as Red Riding Hood in the irreverent take on fairytales.

"There's all of these characters that you're so familiar with and it puts this modern spin on it," said Hayden, who dubbed her character as a "kick-butt version of Little Red Riding Hood."

David Alan Grier plays a bridge troll in the movie and he embellished on his character's involvement.

"My character is pretty much the most pivotal part of this film," David joked at the Tribeca movie screening on Saturday. "I know actors always say that 'It's about me,' but this time it really is."

The movie actually revolves around secret agent Red Riding Hood who gets called to investigate the disappearance of Hansel and Gretel.

Amy Poehler stars in the movie as Gretel and she dished on what makes Little Red Riding Hood's story so interesting, saying, "There's inherent drama and a female protaganist and woods and wolves. I think that describes like 80-percent of the movies that most teenagers are into these days."

'Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil' opens April 29.
