Filmmaker Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future) is reimaging a classic story by Roald Dahl. HBO Max’s ‘The Witches’ just released a trailer and it looks genuinely fun and interesting for the whole family. A witch turns children into mice after they find out her coven’s plot to turn all children into mice.
Together, even as mice, the children must work together to overcome the evil witch (Anne Jacqueline Hathaway) with some help from one of their grandmothers (Octavia Spencer). You can see the full trailer below that was uploaded with the following caption,
“From the mind of Roald Dahl and as reimagined by acclaimed filmmaker Robert Zemeckis, The Witches is a wickedly fun adventure as a young boy stumbles onto a secret coven of child-hating witches as they plot to turn the world’s children into mice. A fresh Halloween classic for this generation, in a story that celebrates courage, teamwork, and unlikely heroes, offering a completely distinct kids proposition with a quirky, delightfully twisted tone in classic Dahl style.”

Fans of the original story and first time viewers commented on the trailer, “I really hope they have Ann look horrific as the grand witch like in the original!!”, “There’s room for both films. Let your kids watch this one, it looks fun, then let them watch the original and laugh at them as they shit themselves in fear of the grand High witch. Everybody wins.”, and “There’s room for both films.
