In England during World War II, three young kids are forced to evacuate their home and move in with the eccentric Eglantine Price. At first, the youths are unhappy -- until they discover that Eglantine is studying to become a witch. Eglantine teaches the children magic, and uses her new powers to take them on wild, fantastic, fun-filled adventures, all of which they experience on a flying bedframe. But when the neophyte witch decides to use her powers to help the Brits win the war, will she succeed? Or will she just create more havoc?
A delightful Disney production which combines live-action and animated sequences. A novice witch aids the British forces during WWII with the help of her young side-kicks. Academy Award Nominations: 5, including Best Song ("The Age of Not Believing"). Academy Awards: Best Special Visual Effects.
