Yes, you’re getting the chance to see yet another animated fantasy adventure straight from Japan on the big screen in theatres near you. Unsurprisingly, the chance to see Mary and the Witch’s Flower is a one-day only premiere event. But hey, you’ve got the option to view it subbed or dubbed! That’s right! On January 18, 2018, this movie can be watched in English dubs starting at 7pm or in Japanese with subtitles starting at 8pm local times
Mary and the Witch’s Flower is Studio Ponoc’s film debut and based on the book The Little Broomstick by Mary Stewart. But it sounds absolutely adorable! Mary, like Rapunzel in Disney’s Tangled, encounters a flower that gives her magical powers. However, unlike Rapunzel’s lifelong healing magic, Mary is gifted with these abilities for one-night only! So, what’s a young girl to do? Well, we’ll have to watch the movie to find out, won’t we?
And if that teaser isn’t enough to get you interested, how about this? Mary and the Witch’s Flower was Hiromasa Yonebayashi. And this guy…this guy has an AMAZING list of credits. He was director for both When Marnie Was There and The Secret World of Arrietty. AND he was an animator for my two favorite Studio Ghibli films: Howl’s Moving Castle and Spirited Away. Seriously, that’s more than enough to get me excited to see this movie.
Here’s a trailer
So, head on over here to get tickets if you want ’em!
