One of Ronald Dahl’s most memorable children’s books is finally coming to the screens! Originally set to be released in theatres, the production’s release was postponed due to coronavirus. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the film will now begin exclusively streaming October 22 on HBO Max!

The synopsis is as follows:

From the mind of Roald Dahl and as reimagined by acclaimed filmmaker Robert Zemeckis, The Witches is a wickedly fun adventure as a young boy stumbles onto a secret coven of child-hating witches as they plot to turn the world’s children into mice. A fresh Halloween classic for this generation, in a story that celebrates courage, teamwork, and unlikely heroes, offering a completely distinct kids proposition with a quirky, delightfully twisted tone in classic Dahl style.

We can’t wait to see this childhood treasure come to life on the screen. If you haven’t already, check out the trailer below!
