When young Charlie, Carrie and Paul move to a small village during World War II, they discover their host, Miss Price (Angela Lansbury), is an apprentice witch!

    Ripoff. My son caught all the missed scenes like when she turned him into a rabbit. Goes from holding each other straight to rabbit. Disney cheated us

    Best Disney film ever! It has everything I love - magic, England during WWII, wonderful song and dance numbers, great stars and fun. The Portobello Road dance is my favorite, displaying London and the many cultures that make it up.
  • My Favorite Movie, Without a Doubt

    By Emily_Victoria
    I grew up watching this movie and it is excellent. The people who are saying that the effects and storyline aren’t great, shame on you. The movie was made in the 1970s—NOT a time period known for great effects that involve the combination of both real people and cartoons (which 80% of this movie is, at least). The storyline does make sense, if you aren’t viewing it from a completely off mindset…don’t look too much into it, just watch it. You don’t see me complaining about “Mary Poppins” because she travels using an umbrella and has a bag that is infinitely large on the inside. I do not prefer the HD version, the SD is a lot better in my opinion…yet I find both equally good. If you don’t care much for modern day Disney (Disney Channel) shows, then I wouldn’t necessarily care too much about the iTunes Extras. Overall, based on the movie alone, I give it five stars. No matter how old I become, this movie never fails to bring a smile to my face.
  • Disappointing

    By AZGizmo
    While the remastering of both video and audio of this movie is excellent, it is the content of this movie which I find to be disappointing. One of the bonus features talks about the painstaking efforts made in an effort to find old and discarded footage (which was originally cut for the initial theatrical release), remaster all of the lost pieces of film and then reinsert them in an attempt to make a more complete film experience, as well as paying respect to the original vision of the filmmakers of this movie. However, after all of this talking about finding and restoring the lost footage, when it comes to the movie we are presented again with the original theatrical release. I’ve seen the restored version of the film, and while some of the dubbing in that version of the film is poor, the story is really fleshed out in ways I never imagined. We come to better understand the primary characters, and even the secondary players are given more screen time. Watching this shamefully edited theatrical version was not only irritating, but I felt like I was watching a misrepresentation of the characters and story in this movie. While the remastering of this movie is superb, I can say with great confidence that I will not be watching this version again. I’d rather stick with the movie with the subpar video and audio, but with the better told story.
