The Witches must be one of Roald Dahl's most thrilling children's stories!

The terrifying witches themselves aside, the story is as exciting as it gets, as the reader follows a little boy and his sweet grandmother as they thwart the efforts of a coven of witches who plan to to rid Britain of children - by turning them into mice!

Now a 2020 movie adaptation promises to take viewers on a rollicking journey on the big screen, in South Africa from 6 November. 

It's sure to be a hit with adults and kids alike, as the cast is packed with big names including Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci and Chris Rock.  

Watch the trailer below... or better yet: see the movie in theatre for FREE!


Sign up to the Parent24 newsletter, and send us a mail letting us know who you're taking with you to see the film - and you could win one of five sets of double tickets to see The Witches!
