Bubble bubble! ROALD DAHL’S THE WITCHES unveils official trailer and launch date!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Halloween! And just in time for this spooky holiday comes Roald Dahl’s The Witches. Based on Dahl’s 1983 novel, this family-friendly movie is full of familiar faces and wacky witchy fun. The new trailer features a whole cast of comical new characters with kids turning into mice, bumbling hotel staff trying to keep up, and a whole coven of witches at a convention.

Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, The Polar Express, Back to the Future) stands at the director, producer, and co-writer’s helm ready to throw humor, warmth, and adventure into a bubbling cauldron for this reimagining of a timeless story. If that isn’t enough talent, add in Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Roma), Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water), and Kenya Barris (Black-ish, Girls Trip) for an unbeatable team of storytellers.

Roald Dahl’s The Witches spins a yarn about a young boy (Jahzir Bruno) who stumbles on a secret coven of witches led by the sly and menacing Grand High Witch (Anne Hathaway). With the help of his tough-but-loving grandmother (Octavia Spencer), they must try to stop their evil plan to turn all the world’s children into mice. The film also stars Stanley Tucci as a hotel manager unwittingly hosting the witches’ convention, Kristin Chenoweth, and Chris Rock as the adult narration of Bruno’s young boy.

This adaptation of Witches will stand alongside an audio reading, a stage play, a radio dramatization, an opera, and a 1990 film with Anjelica Huston and Rowan Atkinson. The film will be released exclusively on HBO Max on October 22nd, just in time for Halloween. This marks one of the very first exclusive films on the new streaming site that launched in late May of this year.
