From Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis( “Forrest Gump”) comes the fantasy adventure “Roald Dahl’s The Witches.” The film star Oscar champions Anne Hathaway( “Les Miserable, ” “Ocean’s 8”) and Octavia Spencer( “The Help, ” “The Shape of Water” ), Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci( “The Hunger Games” films, “The Lovely Bones” ), with Kristin Chenoweth( TV’s “Glee” and “BoJack Horseman”) and award-winning comedy legend Chris Rock. Newcomer Jahzir Kadeem Bruno( TV’s “Atlanta”) likewise stars, alongside Codie-Lei Eastick( “Holmes& Watson” ).

Reimagining Dahl’s beloved storey for a modern gathering, Zemeckis’s visually innovative movie tells the darkly humorous and heartwarming tale of a young orphaned boy( Bruno) who, in late 1967, goes to live with his affectionate Grandma( Spencer) in the rural Alabama town of Demopolis. As the boy and his grandmother encounter some deceptively glamorous but thoroughly ghoulish voodoos, she wisely scoots our young protagonist apart to an sumptuou coast used. Regrettably, they arrive at precise the same time that the world’s Grand High Witch( Hathaway) has met her fellow chums from around the globe–undercover–to carry out her nefarious plans.

Based on the book by Roald Dahl, the screenplay is by Robert Zemeckis& Kenya Barris( TV’s “black-ish, ” “Shaft”) and Oscar win Guillermo del Toro( “The Shape of Water” ). Zemeckis is also rendering, alongside Jack Rapke, del Toro, Alfonso Cuaron and Luke Kelly. Serving as ministerial farmers are Jacqueline Levine, Marianne Jenkins, Michael Siegel, Gideon Simeloff and Cate Adams.

Zemeckis’s behind-the-scenes squad includes a roster of his frequent traitors, including Oscar-nominated director of photography Don Burgess( “Forrest Gump” ), product decorator Gary Freeman, journalists Jeremiah O’Driscoll and Ryan Chan, Oscar-nominated costume designer Joanna Johnston( “Allied, ” “Lincoln” ), and Oscar-nominated composer Alan Silvestri( “Polar Express, ” “Forrest Gump” ).
