Robert Zemeckis’ film is now available for premium purchase and rental on Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Youtube, Google Play, TIMVISION, Chili, Rakuten TV, PlayStation Store, Microsoft Film & TV and for premium rental on Sky Primafila and Infinity.
It is available from today Wednesday 28 October digitally Witches, the fantasy film for the whole family directed by Robert Zemeckis adapting the eponymous children’s novel by Roald Dahl, a book that has sold over 300 million copies and has been translated into 41 different languages around the world, a reference text for children of all generations.
Although it moves the theater of action from Norway and England to 1968 Alabama, the Zemeckis is more faithful to the plot of the book than Dahl (published in Italy by Salani) of direct adaptation from Nicolas Roeg in 1990. And instead ofAnjelica Huston of Who is afraid of witches?, in this new film in the role of the Supreme Witch we find a wild one Anne Hathaway.

And, to give you a better understanding of what kind of film you will have in front of you, Warner Bros. Italy made them available on his channel YouTube ten minutes preview, which we show you below:
Witches – scripted by Zemeckis with Kenya Barris e Guillermo del Toro – tells the moving and dark humor story of a young orphan (Jahzir Kadeem Bruno) who, at the end of 1967, goes to live with his beloved grandmother (Octavia Spencer) in Demopolis, a rural Alabama town. The boy and his grandmother come across some seemingly glamorous but completely devilish witches, so the grandmother wisely decides to take our young hero to a glitzy seaside resort. Unfortunately they arrive at exactly the same time that the Supreme Witch (Anne Hathaway) has assembled his coven of sorcerers from around the world – under cover – to carry out his evil plans.
