From Studio Ponoc, the animation collective featuring several principal artists from the recently shuttered Studio Ghibli, Mary and the Witch’s Flower presents a young girl’s discovery of an enchanted broom. It transports her into a world of magic and adventure, leading to the further revelation of a mystifying flower whose seeds grant her powers beyond her wildest dreams. “An ideal choice for Harry Potter and Studio Ghibli devotees, this animated fantasy adventure about a seemingly unremarkable English girl who enters a magical world is sweetly enchanting.”—Maggie Lee, Variety
