Mary and The Witch's Flower (2017, Studio Ponoc)

Mary to Majou no Hana

Worth A Watch

Mary is living with her aunt Charlotte in the countryside where there is little to do. Despite her eagerness to help, Mary always messes up so she is mostly left bored with nothing to do. One foggy day she ventures into the woods when she shouldn't have and comes across a pretty glowing flower. When she takes it home she finds herself whisked off to a magical witches academy where she can learn magic. As she spends her time there, she learns it's not as great a place as it seemed.

I first saw an ad for this while I was in HK and had thought it was a Ghibli movie but, it turns out that one of the producers had left Ghibli and formed a new studio, Studio Ponoc. This was their first movie and other than the art style, it reminded me a lot of Ghibli's classics such as Totoro, Laputa, Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke and because of this, I quite enjoyed the movie.

It will be interesting to see what Studio Ponoc will come up with in the future. It felt like they've brought the magic Ghibli classics had.
