    From Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to The Wizard of Oz, many classic tales through the centuries wouldn’t be half as exciting without the devious doings of a witch. Now add another to the venerable tradition of stories that deliver family fun every witch way, a collaboration combining the effects wizardry of executive producer Jim Henson and the imagination of Willy Wonka creator Roald Dahl.

    Academy Award® winner* Anjelica Huston won the Los Angeles and National Society of Film Critics Best Actress awards for her marvelous work as the Grand High Witch in this enchanting fable directed by Nicolas Roeg. Jasen Fisher plays Luke, the 9-year-old boy who must foil the plans of a society of witches to turn the world’s children into mice. It won’t be easy: They’ve already transformed him into one! But some big, bad witches may be no match for the resourcefulness of a single tiny rodent.

    Of course! I bought the iTunes digital stream a month ago! I think it'll have to suffice much as I love the movie.

    YES!!! I've been waiting for this a long time and I figured with the Robert Zemeckis remake with Anne Hathaway due out this year or next year, that a blu would be forthcoming.

    Kids love this movie (as do I). It's just creepy and scary enough to get the adrenaline running, but is also funny, and features great make-up and effects. Mai Zetterling's story told to a wide-eyed Jasen Fisher about how to tell a witch from normal people, and then the one dealing with a certain piece of art and a little girl in the painting are genuinely mesmerizing. Underrated film by Nicolas Roeg, who fortunately is having a good year on video with this and the 4K restoration of DON'T LOOK NOW.

    I love this movie. Like others have said, I look forward to watching it widescreen with a quality image. This will be an extra treat this Halloween!
