A sequel calledHoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evilwas released on April 29, 2011.

The movie opens in medias res as Little Red Riding Hood (Anne Hathaway) discovers that the Big Bad Wolf (Patrick Warburton) has disguised himself as Granny (Glenn Close), just as the ax-wielding woodsman (Jim Belushi) bursts through the window and startles everyone, which makes them all scream in terror. The police quickly arrive, and led by detective Nicky Flippers (David Ogden Stiers), Red, Wolf, Granny, and the Woodsman are all questioned about the events leading up to the incident. Flippers realizes that all four are innocent and learns the true story behind the events: Red is trying to protect her granny's recipe book from the Goody Bandit (a thief that steals goodie recipies), but ends up meeting the Wolf, an investigative journalist also tracking down thefts by the Goody Bandit with his hyperactive photographer squirrel companion Twitchy Squirrel (Cory Edwards).

The Wolf is suspicious of Red and encounters her, but Wolf's tail gets caught in Twitchy's camera and screams right in Red's face, making Red scream and run away. However, when she encounters him again, she sprays him with a can of Wolf Away and beats him up, using her Kung Fu skills. Red flees into the mountains, where she finds help from a singing mountain goat named Japeth (Benjy Gaither).

Meanwhile, Granny, a successful goodie maker leading a double-life as extreme sports athlete called Triple-G, is on her way to the Xtreme Dream Snowsports Competition, but finds that a European ski team called the Evil Ski Team is playing dirty and trying to disable Granny. Granny learns from the leader of the gang, Dolph (Tye Edwards), that the Goody Bandit hired them to take out Granny. Granny avoids them by using grenades to cause an avalanche. The avalanche is seen by Red, Japeth, Wolf, and Twitchy.

Japeth begins singing his "Avalanche" song after his "Be Prepared" song. Granny "wins the ski race by a landslide" (as said in the news) and escapes the avalanche by deploying a parachute to parasail towards home. At the same time, Red and Japeth try to get to Granny's house on a minecart, but Twitchy accidentally lights a stick of dynamite (which he thought was a candle) while Wolf and he are also trying to get to Granny's in a mountain railway car further down the track. As Wolf throws the sticks of dynamite out of the cart, they destroy the railway, making Red's cart leave the track. Red, as she's falling, sees Granny (believing her to be a vision, but in reality, Granny's still on her parachute), who tells her granddaughter to use her hood as a parachute to safely land, and Red does so.

Wolf and Twitchy manage to make it to Granny's house before Red. Granny, as she tries to land in the house through her chimney, finds herself entangled in the parachute's drawstrings due to the strings getting caught in her ceiling fan, and lands in her closet, ensnared by ropes. Wolf quickly dons a Granny Puckett disguise before Red arrives in order to try to apprehend her. Simultaneous to these events, Kirk the Woodsman (Jim Belushi), a bad actor, is selling schnitzel on a stick to children in his schnitzel truck, but becomes victim to a robbery by the Goody Bandit. When he receives a callback by the studio's director Jimmy Lizard (Joshua J. Greene), he learns that they're looking for him to try again for the part of the Paul's Bunion Cream Woodsman; so, Kirk practices by chopping down trees, accidentally making one nearly run him over as it falls, making him jump through Granny's window to get away safely, just as Red discovers the Wolf.

Flippers recognizes that the only commonality to these events was a bunny named Boingo (Andy Dick) and the gang realizes that Boingo was the bandit the whole time, and they never knew about it. Red, who is despondent upon learning of her granny's double-life and ran away from home, is all alone and follows Boingo (who was wearing Red's hood and had Granny's recipe book) up to his mountain hideout by climbing onto his cable car, and tries to confront him about his thefts, but he orders the Evil Ski Team (who are revealed to be Boingo's henchmen) to capture Red.

Boingo then reveals his true colors to Red: To use the goodies he and his ski team stole to create a snack franchise; as they sell the snacks, they would add a single ingredient called Boingonium in every single one, which would make the customers become addicted to the snacks. This, in turn, would bring more revenue for Boingo and his henchmen, who then use the money to finance a demoliton against the forest and mountains to extend his business operations further to take control of the land. Granny, Wolf, and Kirk send Twitchy down the mountain to alert the cops of Boingo's hideout before heading up there on their own, where they use their special talents to overcome the henchmen. Boingo, however, sends a bound and gagged Red down the mountain in a cable car filled with explosives, and Granny slides down after her on a muffin pan. She manages to catch up to the car and frees Red before disconnecting it from the cable. It falls into the river below and explodes. The two are then approached by Boingo and the ski team, who are pursuing them on snowboards; however, Red and Granny use their hoods as parachutes to escape them, like Red had to avoid crashing in the mine cart earlier in the movie. The ski team ends up landing inside a police car, thanks to Twitchy's warnings. Granny and Red reconcile, with Red forgiving her and Granny learning to give Red more freedom, and Wolf and Kirk arrive with Granny's recovered recipe book.

The next day, Nicky Flippers tells Red, Granny, Wolf, and Twitchy (Kirk went on to become a world-famous yodeler alongside his favorite singing band the Happy Yodelers) that he's a member of the Happily Ever After Agency, and enlists the four to start a private agency with him, which they happily accept. Red then admits that she always did like happily ever afters, then puts on her hood and smiles at the camera.
