Mary (Barnhill) is a young girl who discovers a magic flower that earns her a place at a school of witchcraft, but she soon discovers that the place is not as welcoming as it seems. Energetic adaptation of Mary Stewart’s novel The Little Broomstick, comfortingly familiar to fans of Ghibli but also fresh and gorgeous.

Mary and the Witch's flower

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 and ingenious characters.

Mary is an ordinary young girl stuck in the country with her Great-Aunt Charlotte. One day she follows a mysterious cat into the nearby forest, where she discovers an old broomstick and the strange Fly-by-Night flower. Together the flower and the broomstick whisk Mary above the clouds, and far away to Endor College – a school of magic!
