The Witches, the latest adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic book, is yet another major movie that’s going straight to a streaming service amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The Robert Zemeckis-directed film will hit HBO Max on October 22nd.
It centers around a young boy who tries to stop a coven of witches from turning every kid on the planet into mice. The cast includes Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer and Stanley Tucci, with Chris Rock as a narrator. The Witches was originally scheduled for a theatrical release this month, but Warner Bros. yanked it from the calendar in June.
