added: Thu, Dec 21st '17

US animation distributor GKIDS Films has released the new U.S. trailer for "Mary and The Witch's Flower," the first feature offering from Studio Ponoc (a brand-new Japanese Animation company run by a couple of former Studio Ghibli animators), which will be hitting theaters across the U.S. next month for a special one-night premiere engagement (via Fathom Events).

Newly dubbed into English and featuring the voice talents of Oscar-winners Kate Winslet and Jim Broadbent with kid actress Ruby Barnhill (star of "The BFG") voicing the title role, "Mary and The Witch's Flower" is the latest magical adventure film from Hiromasa Yonebayashi, the Oscar-nominated animator behind Studio Ghibli's most beloved classics "Spirited Away," "Howl's Moving Castle," and "Ponyo" and is also the director of the acclaimed toons "When Marnie Was There" and "The Secret World of Arrietty."

Based on the 1971 book "The Little Broomstick" by best-selling British children's book author Mary Stewart, "Mary and The Witch's Flower" follows the adventure of a young precocious girl who, after befriending a strange black cat and discovers a rare forest flower, is offered a chance to attend a prestigious school for witches.

The film opens in select U.S. theaters nationwide on January 18th for a one-night engagement and will be available both in English-dubbed and subtitled.

Fathom Events and GKIDS are proud to present this special one-night premiere event in select movie theaters nationwide on Jan 18th.

Studio Ponoc's debut film is based on the 1971 young adult novel The Little Broomstick, Mary and The Witch’s Flower is an all-ages action fantasy adventure that hearkens back to some of the most beloved animated films of all time, full of ingenious characters, jaw-dropping imaginative worlds, and the simple, heartfelt story of a young girl trying to figure her place in the world.
