It’s the season for some family friendly Halloween fun with the new HBOMax film, “Roald Dahl’s The Witches”. Read below to find out more about Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis’s take on this classic Roald Dahl tale and how you can enter to win an awesome “The Witches” themed giveaway!
With two school-aged children, we have read our fair share of Roald Dahl books over the years. Dahl’s fun, adventurous stories have tickled my children’s imagination again and again. So, of course, whenever one of his stories is translated to film or television, we can’t wait to watch it!
This is why we are so excited about the new HBOMax film, “Roald Dahl’s The Witches”. With HBO’s reputation for high-quality programing, Zemeckis’s brilliance and the quality of the cast, this is sure to be a film you don’t want to miss!
The cast includes a TON of star power, including 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.
Rounding out the cast are newcomers Jahzir Kadeem Bruno (TV’s “Atlanta”) and 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.
