Room on the broom 17 witch finding mushrooms

Cinemini: Heksendrank en drakenvuur

Jan Lachauer, Max Lang / GB, 2012 / 25 min.

The kindly witch invites everyone to join her on her flying broom. High up in the air, come rain or wind, but then … snap! The broomstick breaks and the witch finds herself all alone with a dragon and a lot of fire! Screened in the Cinemini programme specially designed for pre-schoolers, with play support.

As the witch in the end brews up a special pot of soup together with her friends, using odd ingredients and mysterious spells, everything turns out just fine.

This is the third animated film by the makers of The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo”s Child. The film was nominated for the Best Animated Short Film at the Academy Awards. Dubbed in Dutch.
