Watch the first two minutes of Mary and The Witchs Flower below…
Mary and The Witch’s Flower combines an exhilarating tale with the unique richness, art and animation of Studio Ghibli-style storytelling, revealing the exciting and surprising adventure of Mary, an ordinary twelve-year-old girl. Bored and lonely during a summer holiday, Mary follows an odd cat into the nearby woods where she stumbles upon a flower and then a little broomstick. Together the flower and broomstick whisk her above the clouds, far away to Endor College – a school of magic!
At Endor, Mary tells a lie that leads to peril, and then a promise, while discovering that all is not as it seems at the school – there are experiments that horrify! Soon she confronts great danger, and a test of her resolve.
Mary and The Witch’s Flower is a sublime blend of magic and fantasy that will sweep audiences along with its charming, heartfelt adventure. Along with the beautiful and distinctive animation style that we have come to instantly recognise and love, this film sparks the sense of wonder, and will delight the world’s children and adults alike.
Directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (Arrietty, When Marnie Was There), Mary and the Witch’s Flower is the first feature film produced by Studio Ponoc, founded by Studio Ghibli veterans Yonebayashi and Yoshiaki Nishimura, and the new home of the animation team that crafted Studio Ghibli’s acclaimed classics.
Altitude Film Distribution and Studio Ponoc are proud to present, Mary and The Witch’s Flower releasing in UK and Irish cinemas nationwide, in both dubbed and subtitled forms, from 18th May.
