Family Flicks Film Series: Bedknobs and Broomsticks

Family Flicks Film Series: Bedknobs and Broomsticks

Co-presented with the UCLA Film & Television Archive

Appropriate for ages 5+

Before there was Harry Potter there was Eglantine Price, the unlikely heroine of Walt Disney’s wartime musical tale of witchcraft and wizardry, Bedknobs and Broomsticks. As the London Blitz wears on, a determined Eglantine busies herself in her country home studying to become an apprentice witch in order to help the war effort. Her studies are interrupted, however, when she is compelled to take in three mischievous orphans. Together they end up on wild adventure buoyed by the top notch effects artistry and animation of the team behind Mary Poppins.  (1971, 117 min., DIR. Robert Stevenson)
