Movie Review: A Witches’ Ball

 

Coming to DVD (available at Walmart) and download on all digital platforms is the family friendly feature film, A Witches’ Ball.

The film stars Morgan Neundorf as the main character Beatrix, and Joey Fatone as the voice of her sidekick/pet Muggs (a pet rat).

I’d mention the other actors in the film, but I don’t think they are very well known.

Every year the Witching World gathers to celebrate all the newly inducted witches into their magical
world. 12 year-old Beatrix has just passed her Witches’ exam with flying colors, earning the title of
valedictorian. However, all that excitement comes to a crashing halt when an incident puts her pending
status in jeopardy. Now Beatrix and her pet rat, Muggs (voiced by Joey Fatone) have to figure out
how to set things right by solving three magical riddles before the big night. This fun-filled CGI live-action film is produced by Brain Power Studio.

A Witches’ Ball will entertain families with engaging characters and fun adventures. The stunning CGI and magical storyline will support and encourage children’s imaginations, and spark their creativity, just in time for Halloween! Beatrix is a contemporary aspirational role-model who displays confidence and
determination through creative problem-solving. A Witches’ Ball at its heart is about being true to yourself and accepting others for who they are.

I had the opportunity to watch a screener of the film.

This is a family friendly film. There is no foul language, violence, nudity or anything that would make it questionable for young viewers. The film is rated “PG”, but I’d honestly give it a “G” rating.

With Halloween fast approaching, this would be an ideal for a family with young children to enjoy together. It’s not scary at all. It also doesn’t necessarily talk about Halloween, but many might associate a film about witches with Halloween. I’m sure this film can be enjoyed year round.

I think this film would appeal more to little girls than boys. The main character is a girl and most of the other lead characters are female. However, there are some elements that would appeal to boys such as a talking rat and a little leprechaun witch.

It’s a little “cheesy” and predictable, but, its geared more towards children than adults. I could have done without one singing scene, but I guess it was a necessary part of the movie (another words it was needed to get the story across).

The CGI (Computer Generated Images) was actually pretty good considering this is not a big budget film.

If you are looking for a family friendly film for your next movie night, A Witches’ Ball is a nice option.

The run time is 90 minutes.
