Roald Dahl’s The Witches Trailer

Roald Dahl’s The Witches Lowdown

From Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump) comes the fantasy adventure Roald Dahl’s The Witches.

The film stars:-

  • Oscar winners Anne Hathaway (know for Les Misérable, Ocean’s 8)
  • Octavia Spencer (The Help, The Shape of Water)
  • Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games films, The Lovely Bones)
  • with Kristin Chenoweth (TV’s Glee and BoJack Horseman)
  • and award-winning comedy legend Chris Rock.

Newcomer Jahzir Kadeem Bruno (TV’s Atlanta) also stars, alongside Codie-Lei Eastick (Holmes & Watson).

Story Reimaged

Reimagining Dahl’s beloved story for a modern audience, Zemeckis’s visually innovative film tells the darkly humorous and heartwarming tale.

It concerns a young orphaned boy (Bruno). In late 1967, he goes to live with his loving Grandma (Spencer) in the rural Alabama town of Demopolis. The boy and his grandmother encounter some deceptively glamorous but thoroughly diabolical witches. She wisely whisks our young hero away to an opulent seaside resort. Regrettably, they arrive at precisely the same time that the world’s Grand High Witch (Hathaway) has gathered her fellow cronies from around the globe—undercover—to carry out her nefarious plans.

Production Crew

Based on the book by Roald Dahl, the screenplay is by Robert Zemeckis & Kenya Barris (TV’s black-ish, Shaft) and Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water). Zemeckis is also producing, alongside Jack Rapke, del Toro, Alfonso Cuarón and Luke Kelly. Serving as executive producers are Jacqueline Levine, Marianne Jenkins, Michael Siegel, Gideon Simeloff and Cate Adams.

Zemeckis’s behind-the-scenes team includes a roster of his frequent collaborators, including Oscar-nominated director of photography Don Burgess (Forrest Gump). We also have production designer Gary Freeman, editors Jeremiah O’Driscoll and Ryan Chan, Oscar-nominated costume designer Joanna Johnston (Allied, Lincoln), and Oscar-nominated composer Alan Silvestri (Polar Express, Forrest Gump).
