Roald Dahl’s The Witches is now on HBO Max. It’s a great movie to enjoy with your family this Halloween. As a former teacher, I’d say it’s great to watch anytime! If you haven’t shared the Roald Dahl book with your kids, now is the time!
This post is in partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures.
ROALD DAHL’S THE WITCHES MOVIE
Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis (“Forrest Gump”) has reimagined the story you may remember from your childhood for the modern audience and has brought The Witches movie to a new generation!
The movie is based on the book by Roald Dahl and the screenplay is by Robert Zemeckis & Kenya Barris (TV’s “black-ish,” “Shaft”), and Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro (“The Shape of Water”).
If you haven’t read the book with your kids, BUY YOUR COPY NOW! It’s a must have!
The film tells the story of a young orphaned boy who goes to live with his loving Grandma 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 has gathered her fellow cronies from around the globe—undercover—to carry out her nefarious plans.
