Rating: 3/5 -- Still working the Miyazaki playbook, if not quite with the maestro's level of expertise. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Mary and the Witch's Flower is basically a greatest hits album of Studio Ghibli tropes and elements, but it's a very well-assembled one that proves if the formula ain't broke, why bother fixing it? Full Review

[A] charming children’s entertainment....The rustling forests and voluptuous clouds recall the work of Hayao Miyazaki...

Rating: 3/5 -- May not reach the heights of Ghibli's best but nevertheless marks a mildly auspicious start to the Studio Ponoc offshoot. Full Review
MARY squarely hits all of its marks, fashioning a spunky young hero and alternately surrounding her with gorgeous watercolor landscapes and eye-popping grotesques.
Magic flows freely if not infinitely in MARY AND THE WITCH'S FLOWER, an effortless animated charmer from the gifted Japanese director and Studio Ghibli veteran Hiromasa Yonebayashi.
Los Angeles Times
A young girl (voice of Ruby Barnhil) plucks a rare flower in the woods near her great aunt's house. She gains special powers and is transported to a school for witches and wizards, but soon learns that the institution is harboring a dark secret. Hiromasa Yonebayashi directed this animated fantasy, which is adapted from the novel THE LITTLE BROOMSTICK by Mary Stewart. Kate Winslet, Jim Broadbent, Ewen Bremner, and Louis Ashbourne Serkis also lend their voices.
