A dazzling, mystical adventure film based on Mary Stewart’s classic children’s book ‘The Little Broomstick’ which sees 12 year-old Mary staying in the countryside with her Great-Aunt Charlotte. There she discovers a flower of magical powers that only blossoms every seven years. After the flower brings a nearby broomstick to life, Mary finds herself whisked away to a mysterious place called Endor College, a school of magic run by headmistress Madam Mumblechook and Doctor Dee, where she is welcomed as one of the students. Soon enough, though, things take a dangerous turn, and Mary must embark on a journey to set things straight. The first film from Studio Ponoc – some of the creators behind the much-loved Studio Ghibli – this is a gentle anime comprised of beautiful storytelling.
