Mary and the Witch's Flower (Blu-Ray)

 

From Academy Award-nominated director Hiromasa Yonebayashi.

One day, while spending the summer with her great aunt, Mary follows an odd cat into the nearby woods. There she stumbles upon flowers which hold a strange, luminescent power that brings a broomstick to life - which then, in a heartbeat, whisks her above the clouds and off to a strange and secret place. It is here she finds Endor College a school of magic!

Even though the penalties for imposters are harsh, Mary enters the Endor College campus. And despite a complete lack of magical knowledge, she demonstrates surprising promising abilities. However, she quickly discovers that all is not as it seems at the school there have been strange experiments taking place behind closed doors, and all too soon, she comes face to face with great danger and a life-changing choice.

From the creators of Arrietty and When Marnie Was There, and featuring the voices of Ruby Barnhill (The BFG), Kate Winslet (Titanic) and Jim Broadbent (Paddington), Mary and The Witch's Flower is a stunningly animated fantasy adventure, filled with magic, fun and emotion.

Critical Response

"For longtime Ghibli fans who were afraid they were done with new adventures, especially in the Miyazaki mold, it's tremendous. And for people who aren't familiar with Ghibli, but are looking for a beautifully animated, fast-moving adventure fantasy, it's also tremendous." - The Verge

"...looks and feels so much like a Ghibli film, from the character designs to the story dynamic to the source material." - The Verge

"Visually, Mary and the Witch's Flower is indistinguishable from a Ghibli film... The environments are immaculate and luminous, but the food in particular looks like a series of still-life paintings ready for a museum." - The Verge

"Mary and the Witch's Flower doesn't just borrow elements from Ghibli, it feels like a complete continuation of the studio's work. It's a welcome relief for every animation fan who thought that particular era of Japanese animation had, after 30 years, quietly come to a close." - The Verge
