The Witches’ magic is coming to HBO Max!
That’s right, the Robert Zemeckis dark comedy starring Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer and Stanley Tucci will premiere on HBO Max on October 22!
The Warner Bros movie was removed from the theater release schedule due to COVID, but now it appears the film will be used to help entice Americans into subscribing to its young streaming platform.
The movie is based on the 1983 novel by the same name, written by Roald Dahl.
The plot is described as,
“A little boy and his kindly grandmother thwart the efforts of a coven of witches to rid Britain of children by turning them into mice.”
Hathaway portrays The Grand High Witch responsible for turning children into mice. Chris Rock voices the narrator. The Boy is depicted by Jahzir Kadeem Bruno and The Grandmother is played by Octavia Spencer.
