Mary and the Witch's Flower

Award-winning director Hiromasa Yonebayashi - whose former work for Studio Ghibli included the beloved Arriety and When Marnie Was Here - continues his fine form with the recently formed Studio Ponoc.

The charming story centers around an awkward girl who is given a place in a secretive school for witches, reminiscent of Hogwarts. The story is based on the much-loved 1971 novel The Little Broomstick, penned by British novelist Mary Stewart. Mary, a girl who struggles to soar, is a heroine to root for.
