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.

Still Great...
12 October 2018 | by briceharlanSee all my reviews

Seriously, this movie is still good. I grew up on this movie, and recently watched it again. It still made me smile more than I imagined, and cringe less than I thought. Love it.
