This movie included a $3 million replica of a Byzantine castle, built between 1926 and 1934 from lava rock from Mt. Vesuvius and materials all over Europe, which served as Aristotle Bolt's (Ray Milland's) kingly abode, Xanthus. See more »
Deranian's car is equipped with a mobile telephone and a two-way radio, however no antennas exist for those systems on the car. The only antenna is for the car's AM radio. See more »
That thing's flying upside down... That's impossible! That kind of vehicle *can't* fly upside down. It's not supposed to fly at all!

Early video releases were missing the magic sequence with the dancing puppets. Disney's response to complaints was that music rights were not available. See more »
This is perhaps the best childrens movie ever made!
I first saw Escape to Witch Mountain when it came out in 1975. Even though I was 22 at that time, I still remember the warm feelings that were in my heart when the movie was over. It made me feel like a little boy again! Over the years, I must have seen this movie at least 50 times, and I still get heart-warming feelings every time I view it. I have three children, (girls), and made sure that they saw it. They loved it! I originally went to see this movie because I was a fan of Donald Pleasence and Eddie Albert. It was'nt long before I became a fan of Ike and Kim as well. It would be terrific if Disney would do a sequel, (with Ike & Kim).
