Marnie, Dylan, and Sophie Piper have their first out of many adventures! On Halloween, while Marnie is arguing with her mother Gwen, the kids' grandmother Aggie comes to visit. Aggie wants to start Marnie's witch training before her 13th birthday or Marnie will lose her powers forever. But there is another reason for Aggie's visit.

good for little kids
26 August 2018 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

13 year old Marnie Piper is tired of her mother Gwen (Judith Hoag)'s strict rules against going out on Halloween. The youngest one, Sophie, wants to go trick or treating. Middle child Dylan is a rule follower. After a visit from grandma Aggie Cromwell (Debbie Reynolds), the kids follow her onto the magic bus back to Halloweentown. The town was created to seperate the magical beings from human mortals. Aggie has been battling an unseen evil in town. The Cromwells are a family of powerful witches but the kids' mother have tried very hard to keep them from developing their witch powers. Luke is a bratty teen and Kalabar is the mayor of Halloweentown.

This is really for little kids. It's not even for tween girls. It's a little too silly for that. There is nothing scary except for really young kids. The acting is fine for a kiddie movie. Mostly, the Halloweentown looks a little cheap which is fine for little kids and they can see themselves as one of the kids on an adventure.
