Starring: Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci, Chris Rock, Jahzir Bruno, Kristin Chenoweth, Codie-Lei Eastick
HBO Max fantasy comedy directed and co-written by Robert Zemeckis. In this reimagining of Roald Dahl’s classic story, we follow a young orphaned boy (Jahzir Bruno) who, in late 1967, goes to live with his loving Grandmother (Octavia Spencer) in rural Alabama. As the boy and his grandmother encounter some deceptively glamorous but thoroughly diabolical witches, she takes the boy away to an opulent seaside resort. However, they arrive at precisely the same time that the world’s Grand High Witch (Anne Hathaway) has gathered her fellow witches from around the globe, undercover, to carry out her nefarious plans.

Narrator: My story begins when I was a young boy.
Grandmother: You’ll be comfy here, in your mama’s old room. I’d do anything for her to be here right now.
Narrator: Grandma was a tough lady with a big heart. And little by little, she brought me out of my sadness.
Narrator: I didn’t know it, but there was a dark shadow looming nearby. Witches. They’re real. And they hate children.
Mr. Stringer: Welcome.
Grand High Witch: What would you do if there were mice running all around this hotel?
Mr. Stringer: I would call the exterminator.
Grand High Witch: You see, girls? He would exterminate those brats!
Mr. Stringer: Uh, rats. We would exterminate the rats.
Grandmother: I feared this was happening.
Grandmother: They’re here. That means a test is coming.
Grand High Witch: Ladies, I have a plan. One drop will transform a child into a mouse.
Child #1: Why are we mouses?!
Boy, Child #2: “Mice”.
Child #1: Whatever!
[after he’s been turned into a mouse]
Boy: Grandma, it’s me!
Grandmother: Is that you, boy?
Grandmother: We’ll never let you get away with your filthy, evil plot.
Grand High Witch: Who’s going to stop me?
Mr. Stringer: You wouldn’t happen to be carrying around a mouse on your person, now, would you?
Grandmother: A mouse?
Mr. Stringer: Mm-hmm.
Grandmother: Why on earth would I be carrying around a mouse?
Grandmother: It doesn’t matter who you are, or what you look like, so long as somebody loves you.
