“Mary and the Witch’s Flower Full Movie” Mary and the Witch’s Flower is the first animated feature film to come out of the workshops of the young Ponoc studio (after the Serbo-Croatian ponoc meaning “dawn”), made up mostly of defectors from the Ghibli studio, reduced to technical unemployment after the announcement in 2014 of the cessation of production. And no doubt it was necessary to go through this new structure so that young authors finally come out of the intimidating rut of the two great masters, Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, co-founders of Ghibli, who reigned economically and symbolically on the Japanese animation for more than thirty years.
Read the story: The Ghibli studio still in pause mode
For his director, the talented Hiromasa Yonebayashi ( Arrietty, the little world of the pilferers , 2010), 44 years old, disciple of Miyazaki since the Journey of Chihiro (2001), the stake is of size: to launch the studio and to conjure the commercial failure of his previous film, Souvenirs de Marnie (2014), beautiful work tortuous and underestimated, which will remain as the latest production Ghibli, one that will not manage to get the studio back on track.
Adapted as his predecessor to a British children’s novel ( The Little Broomstick, “The Little Sweeper” , of the Scottish Mary Stewart, Hodder Children’s Books, 2006, untranslated), Mary and the Witch’s Flower comes under the double sign of renewal and continuity.
Mary, a red-haired girl with duvets, spends the summer in her grandmother’s country house, where she is bored. A cat from the neighborhood leads her to the edge of the forest, on the trail of a mysterious flower, the “Night Flight”, which gives her the power to fly on her broom. She then discovers, in the middle of the clouds, the palace of Endor, which contains a school of magic and shelters, in the secret of its walls, curious experiments.
