Mary and the Witch’s Flower
Young Mary follows a mysterious cat into the woods, where she discovers a broomstick and the mysterious Fly-by-Night flower, a rare plant which blooms only once every seven years. Together, the flower and the broomstick whisk Mary away to Endor College, a school of magic, run by Doctor Dee and headmistress Madam Mumblechook.
Adapted from the 1971 novel, The Little Broomstick, by popular British novelist Mary Stewart, Mary and the Witch’s Flower is the first film from Studio Ponoc, founded by the lead film producer from the acclaimed Studio Ghibli.
“Yonebayashi pays perfect tribute to Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli with this bewitching and visually dazzling adventure. Studio Ponoc is off to a flying start.” – Ben Travis, Empire
