A new U.S. trailer and poster has arrived for director Hiromasa Yonebayashi and Studio Ponoc’s animated film “Mary and the Witch’s Flower”.
Mary is a young girl stuck in a rural British village/. A chance encounter with a pair of mysterious cats leads her into the nearby forest, where she finds an old broom stuck in the overgrowth of a nearby tree, and the strange blue glow of the fly-by-night flower, a rare plant that blossoms only once every seven years.
As the broom comes to life and lifts Mary high into the skies, she discovers a mysterious school for witches above the clouds.
Studio Ponoc was assembled from two of the key talent from Stubio Ghibli – producer Yoshiaki Nishimura (“The Tale of The Princess Kaguya”) and director Hiromasa Yonebayashi (“When Marnie Was There”).
The English version of the film, boasting the voices of Ruby Barnhill, Kate Winslet and Jim Broadbent, will have a special Fathom Screening Event on January 18th ahead of a limited theatrical release the next day.
