‘The Witches‘ Remake Starring Anne Hathaway and Octavia Spencer to Premiere on HBO Max. A new adaption of The Witches, a popular children’s book by Roald Dahl, was set to premiere in theaters this fall, but as a last minute surprise, Warner Bros. announced The Witches will bypass theaters and is now set to a premiere on the new streaming service, HBO Max, on October 22nd.
The book was originally adapted into a film in 1990 and starred Anjelica Huston as the Grand High Witch/Miss Ernst. Reportedly, Roald Dahl himself was not a fan of the original film as it differed from the original book ending. Reportedly, the new film is said to be a more faithful adaption from the popular children’s book. The Witches (2020) stars Anne Hathaway (Grand High Witch), Octavia Spencer (Grandmother), Jahzir Bruno, Stanley Tucci (Mr Stringer), and Chris Rock.
“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.”
