Earwig and the Witch

Studio Ghibli returns in a new animation style with the story of 10-year-old Earwig, who was left at St Morwald’s Home for Children as a baby. She loves it there – not least because she possesses the strange ability to make everyone do exactly as she wishes. The last thing Earwig wants is to be adopted by the witch Bella Yaga… but for the first time in her life, her desires are thwarted. She puts a brave face on her new situation – after all, she’s always wanted to learn magic – but Earwig will need all her ingenuity, along with the help of Bella Yaga’s cat Thomas, if she is to survive and flourish.
