Come ‘bobbing along’ to The Odyssey this April to see one of Disney’s most endearing classics on the big screen.
Screen icon Angela Lansbury plays Eglantine Price, an apprentice witch who takes in three children evacuated from London during WWII. When the children find out about her unusual hobby, she places a magical travelling spell upon a bed knob, enabling them to begin a series of fabulous adventures.
They visit Professor Emelius Browne (David Tomlinson) of the College of Witchcraft and Wizardry and when he discovers that Miss Price is able to perform real magic, they embark on a quest to find the missing half of an ancient book which will enable them to complete the ‘substitutiary locomotion’ spell which brings inanimate objects to life.
With Academy Award-winning special effects, Bedknobs and Broomsticks is a magical blend of live action and animation with a first-rate supporting cast including Sam Jaffe, Roddy McDowall and none other than the legendary Bruce Forsyth.
Combined with Oscar nominated songs by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, it is a treat for all the family and a perfect companion to the recent Mary Poppins Returns.
