Mary and the Witch's Flower coming to Blu-ray and DVD in September
The debut film of Studio Ghibli inspired Studio Ponoc, the lovely Mary and the Witch's Flower, is coming to DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download on 10th September.
Combining an action-packed girl-power adventure with a magical fantasy tale, Mary and the Witch's Flower introduces the spirited, red-haired Mary, spending the last weeks of summer in the English countryside with her Great-Aunt Charlotte. Following a mysterious black cat, Tib, into the woods she stumbles upon a magical flower that transforms a little broomstick into one that flies! Mary is fast whisked away high above the clouds and transported to Endor College – a school of witchcraft and wizardry! Mary is warmly welcomed by headmistress Madame Mumblechook (Kate Winslet) and the eccentric Doctor Dee (Jim Broadbent). Believing her to be a once-in-a-lifetime magical prodigy they give Mary a guided tour of the dazzling school and invite her to join.
