Here’s something to get you in the Halloween spirit! Roald Dahl’s The Witches is now streaming on HBO Max.
This movie, based on the popular children’s book, The Witches, is fun for the whole family.
And now that we’re about to turn the clocks back, it’s officially time to cozy up with the kids and a great movie. This is it! I’ve got the trailer and an AWESOME giveaway below.
If you’re not familiar with the story The Witches, you probably do know of the author Roald Dahl from his other very popular reads: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, and The BFG, to name a few.
He’s an incredibly gifted children’s author, and a few years back I had the opportunity to meet and interview his daughter, Lucy Dahl. So much fun to hear all of her stories about her dad!
Just in time for Halloween this year, The Witches come to life in a fantastic film.
Roald Dahl’s The Witches on HBO Max
From Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis (“Forrest Gump”) comes the fantasy adventure “Roald Dahl’s The Witches.” The film stars Oscar winners Anne Hathaway (“Les Misérable,” “Ocean’s 8”) and Octavia Spencer (“The Help,” “The Shape of Water”), Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci (“The Hunger Games” films, “The Lovely Bones”), with Kristin Chenoweth (TV’s “Glee” and “BoJack Horseman”) and award-winning comedy legend Chris Rock. Newcomer Jahzir Kadeem Bruno (TV’s “Atlanta”) also stars, alongside Codie-Lei Eastick (“Holmes & Watson”).
Reimagining Dahl’s beloved story for a modern audience, Zemeckis’s visually innovative film tells the darkly humorous and heartwarming tale of a young orphaned boy (Bruno) who, in late 1967, goes to live with his loving Grandma (Spencer) in the rural Alabama town of Demopolis. As the boy and his grandmother encounter some deceptively glamorous but thoroughly diabolical witches, she wisely whisks our young hero away to an opulent seaside resort. Regrettably, they arrive at precisely the same time that the world’s Grand High Witch (Hathaway) has gathered her fellow cronies from around the globe—undercover—to carry out her nefarious plans.
The cast is amazing, and the movie looks SO good. Check out the trailer below!
