Ralph Dahl’s classic children’s story The Witches is getting another cinematic adaptation, with a new trailer featuring its all-star cast, led by Hollywood star Anne Hathaway.
This most recent retelling of a favorite fantasy story comes courtesy of director Robert Zemeckis, known for his iconic back-to-the-future trilogy, Forest Gump and The Polar Express.
Ambitious visual effects always come to the center of his work and we get a glimpse of him here, as Hathaway turns into the evil Grand High witch, who conspires to kill the children staying in the fancy hotel.
He transforms a little boy into a rat for extermination, played by newcomer Zahir Kadim Bruno, but he plans to fight with the help of his loving grandmother (Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer).
