The Witches was originally set to release this month on October 9, premiering in theaters, but was postponed due to COVID-19. The movie is set to release just before Halloween on October 22. Viewers will be able to watch the film on its release date from home, as it will be skipping movie theaters and heading straight to HBO Max.

This is not the film’s first adaptation. In 1990, the film got an adaptation starring Anjelica Huston and Rowan Atkinson. The 2020 film, directed by Robert Zemeckis, is will also be based on the 1973 children’s book, The Witches, which was written by Roald Dahl.

We cannot wait to see what mischief and spells Anne Hathaway and the rest of the cast will be up to in this new film. Make sure to check out The Witches on October 22.
