The Witches will premiere exclusively on US streaming service HBO Max on October 22nd, ahead of its theatrical release on October 28th.
The movie, a reimagining of the classic Roald Dahl story, is directed by Robert Zemeckis, produced by Guillermo del Toro and includes Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci, Kristin Chenoweth and Chris Rock amongst the cast.
“The Witches is a wonderful reimagining of Roald Dahl’s classic tale that combines world-class filmmaking with fantastic performances. It’s fun for the whole family and ideal for this time of year,” said Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros Pictures Group.
“This film, with its stellar cast, is outstanding,” added Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer for HBO and HBO Max. “We are thrilled to be able to use our platform to deliver timely, relevant and engaging new content during this time when the theatrical experience is not available to everyone.”
