From Mary and the Witch's Flower

From Hiromasa Yonebayashi – animator on Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away – comes a dazzling adventure about a young girl, granted magical powers for one night only.

Mary is an ordinary young girl stuck in the country with her Great-Aunt Charlotte and no adventures or friends in sight. Following a mysterious cat into the nearby forest, she discovers an old broomstick and the strange Fly-by-Night flower, a rare plant that blossoms only once every seven years. Together the flower and the broomstick whisk Mary above the clouds, and far away to magic school Endor College.

Based on Mary Stewart’s 1971 classic children’s book The Little Broomstick, prepare for an action-packed film full of jaw-dropping worlds, ingenious characters, and the stirring, heartfelt story of a young girl trying to find a place in the world.

Featuring the voices of Ruby Barnhill, Kate Winslet and Jim Broadbent.
