About the movie
Reimagining Dahlâs beloved story for a modern audience, Robert Zemeckisâs visually innovative film tells the darkly humorous and heartwarming tale of a young orphaned boy who, in late 1967, goes to live with his loving Grandma in the rural Alabama town of Demopolis.â¯ As the boy and his grandmother encounter some deceptively glamorous but thoroughly diabolical witches, she wisely whisks our young hero away to an opulent seaside resort.â¯ Regrettably, they arrive at precisely the same time that the worldâs Grand High Witch has gathered her fellow cronies from around the globeâundercoverâto carry out her nefarious plans.
