Welcome to Day 19 of my Advent Calendar and welcome to some lovely Mary Stewart news. There is going to be a film based on The Little Broomstick, due to be released in summer 2017! Sorry, I think this post will contain lots of exclamation marks but I am so excited!

I love this children’s book by Mary Stewart – as I discuss here in my blog in this page and this post. The film is called ‘Mary and the Witch’s Flower‘ and is a Japanese animation, the first animated feature from Studio Ponoc.

Did you spot Tib in the trailer? And Endor College?

The Bookseller mentions the film too, here. So the book is going to be re-released alongside the film release. Yes!

It will be fascinating to see how closely the film sticks to the story of The Little Broomstick – I can’t wait to watch.
