I can honestly tell you that I haven't the foggiest to, if I remember reading the Roald Dahl book 'The Witches'. I remember 'The BFG' and 'Matilda', I may have even read 'James and the Giant Peach' but The Witches, not a clue. I liked his books too. However, having watched this trailer, it looks like the book may have been a fun read as this trailer looks really really good.
First off for me was Chris Rock, it sounded like him narrating. I actually don't mind his voice as a Narrator as he has been in animation with voiceover work and he IS really good. Secondly, Octavia Spencer. Having just recently seen 'Ma' which was decent but sinister and with voice work in 'Onward' and 'Dolittle', she's really getting some good roles. Thirdly, last but not least, Anne 'you silly woman, why did you go for the data!?' Hathaway (I'm only now slowly forgiving her for what she did in Interstellar), she is looking and projecting something amazing. The way she looks and the way she is portraying the character, I didn't even know it was her at first. With the slits at the sides of her mouth, the accent AND the baldness, her character is looking a lot different from the Angelica Houston version from 1990, THIRTY YEARS AGO! However, I do feel I saw this back then.
This film looks like it's going to be very entertaining, it's just a wonder as to when we will ever see anything in the cinemas as everything is either being pushed to streaming or pushed to 2021 because of this pandemic. What I might also add, with Kenya Barris and Guillermo del Toro as joint writers with director Robert Zemeckis, this may be a well put together project, I mean the trailer looks excellent. I did't even recognise Stanley Tucci.
Directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci & Chris Rock,
