Disney’s Academy Award-winning classic Bedknobs and Broomsticks soars to Blu-ray for the very first time in a special edition with an all-new digital master full of brilliant picture and magnificent sound. Based upon the books The Magic Bed Knob; or, How to Become a Witch in Ten Easy Lessons (1943) and Bonfires and Broomsticks (1945) by English children's author Mary Norton, it is a dazzling blend of live action and wondrous animation directed by Robert Stevenson, the producer, director and writer of Mary Poppins. Disney legends Angela Lansbury and David Tomlinson star in this enchanting film that is sure to delight the whole family.
Set in England during the Blitz, Ms. Price, an apprentice witch, reluctantly takes in three orphaned children -- Charlie, Carrie and Paul. Although Ms. Price’s early attempts at magic create laughable results, she ends up successfully casting a traveling spell on an ordinary bedknob. Soon they find themselves swept away aboard a fantastic flying bed on a fun-filled adventure, joined by Correspondence College of Witchcraft headmaster Mr. Browne, to the animated Isle of Naboombu to find a powerful spell that may save England and end the war.
