Canadian Theatrical News: Mary and the Witch’s Flower

GKIDS and Cineplex are bringing Studio Ghibli alum Hiromasa Yonebayashi’s Mary and the Witch’s Flower to theatres across Canada this month. The first film produced by Yoshiaki Nishimura’s Studio Ponoc opened in Japan last summer. GKIDS partnered with Fathom Events to launch a U.S. run in mid-January.

Based on Mary Stewart’s 1971 children’s book The Little Broomstick, Mary marks Yonebayashi’s third directorial effort, after 2010’s The Secret World of Arrietty and 2014’s When Marnie Was There. Yonebayashi co-wrote the script with Riko Sakaguchi, who helped write the screenplay for Ghibli’s The Tale of the Princess Kaguya alongside Isao Takahata. Mary’s musical score is from Takatsugu Muramatsu, who also scored Yonebayashi’s Marnie.

From Academy Award-nominated Hiromasa Yonebayashi – animator on Studio Ghibli masterpieces Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Ponyo, and director of When Marnie Was There and The Secret World of Arrietty – comes a dazzling new adventure about a young girl named Mary, who discovers a flower that grants magical powers, but only for one night.

Mary is an ordinary young girl stuck in the country with her Great-Aunt Charlotte and seemingly no adventures or friends in sight. She follows a mysterious cat into the nearby forest, where she discovers an old broomstick and the strange Fly-by-Night flower, a rare plant that blossoms only once every seven years and only in that forest. Together the flower and the broomstick whisk Mary above the clouds, and far away to Endor College – a school of magic run by headmistress Madam Mumblechook and the brilliant Doctor Dee. But there are terrible things happening at the school, and when Mary tells a lie, she must risk her life to try to set things right.

Based on Mary Stewart’s 1971 classic children’s book The Little Broomstick, Mary and The Witch’s Flower is an action-packed film full of jaw-dropping imaginative worlds, ingenious characters, and the and the stirring, heartfelt story of a young girl trying to find a place in the world.
