I’m so excited by this movie, it’s one of my favorites ever! Originally released in 1986, and a shorter movie as it lasts just over an hour, but so much fun for any hopeful witch out there.
The movie follows Mildred Hubble, who is a student at a prestigious school for witches. But, she seems to be cursed as she has difficulty in all of her classes. She is picked on by teachers and students alike, and after an embarrassing accident during the Halloween festivities in front of the Grand Wizard, Mildred decides to run away from school.
While flying away from school with her kitten Mildred discovers a coven of evil witches, lead by the headmistress’s sister. They are planning to attack the school and turn everyone inside into toads! Will Mildred be able to save the day and prove she’s not, The Worst Witch?
This movie does have some bigger names including:
- Tim Curry – Grand Wizard
- Diana Rigg – Miss Hardbroom
- Charlotte Rae – Miss Cackle/Agnes
- Fairuza Balk – Mildred Hubble
Gather all your little hopeful witches, hand out some candy apples, and watch a fun movie that will have you rooting for the underdog.
