About "Roald Dahl's The Witches"
Reimagining Roald Dahl's beloved story for a modern audience, Robert Zemeckis's visually innovative film tells the darkly humorous and heartwarming tale of a young orphaned boy who, in late 1967, goes to live with his loving Grandma in the rural Alabama town of Demopolis. As 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 has gathered her fellow cronies from around the globe—undercover—to carry out her nefarious plans.
The film stars Oscar winners Anne Hathaway ("Les Misérable," "Ocean's 8") and 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").
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.
