I really loved this film and was so excited to see a new studio Ghibli masterpiece! This film has so much magic, wonder, feeling! Making you feel like a kid again! This film is wonderful!

Cute and fantastic movie. It's essentially Harry Potter, if conceived by Studio Ghibli, though in this case, it's an offshoot studio. Very well made, endearing characters and a good story, though it's probably more appropriate for gradeschoolers than teenagers.

Beautiful story about doing your best and taking one step at a time. The story portrays no evil villian but people who are inherently good, showing children and everyone that people are inherently good. It was a wonderful story and amazing artistry! 10/10!

MOVIE INFO
From Academy Award (R)-nominee Hiromasa Yonebayashi - animator on Studio Ghibli masterpieces Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, and Ponyo, and director of When Marnie Was There and The Secret World of Arrietty - comes a dazzling new adventure about a young girl named Mary, who discovers a flower that grants magical powers, but only for one night. Mary is an ordinary young girl stuck in the country with her Great-Aunt Charlotte and seemingly no adventures or friends in sight. She follows a mysterious cat into the nearby forest, where she discovers an old broomstick and the strange Fly-by-Night flower, a rare plant that blossoms only once every seven years and only in that forest. Together the flower and the broomstick whisk Mary above the clouds, and far away to Endor College - a school of magic run by headmistress Madam Mumblechook and the brilliant Doctor Dee. But there are terrible things happening at the school, and when Mary tells a lie, she must risk her life to try to set things right. Based on Mary Stewart's 1971 classic children's book The Little Broomstick, Mary and The Witch's Flower is an action-packed film full of jaw-dropping imaginative 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 and Academy Award-winners Kate Winslet and Jim Broadbent
