About the movie Mary and the witch’s flower

Aunt Charlotte (Acted by Shinobu Otake) so loved kind hearted couple- Madam Mumblechook (Acted by Yuki Amami); a teacher and Sir Dee (Acted by Fumiyo Kohinata) that she bestowed them a magical flower.

The couple soon realized that the flower had great and unimaginable powers. They studied the magical seeds of the flower and tried an experiment with it using students.

They duo were desperate to give students great magical ability, so, they set up a magic school called Endor College. The couple would stop at nothing to make sure that their experiment worked out. However, the more they tried, the more they failed.

They failed over and over again, and they couldn’t control what it turned humans into. Aunty Charlotte however ran away with the remaining magical flower with her in order to save more lives from being destroyed in the couple’s experiment.

Some years later, a relation of Aunt Charlotte- Mary (Acted by Hana Sugisaki) followed one of Peter’s cats- “Tib Cat” to go find Peter’s other cat- “Gib cat”

In her search for Tib cat, she stumbled on an old broomstick as well as a mysterious flower known as fly by night. The broomstick took Mary into the clouds where she found herself in Endor college, a school that experiments on animals and beings and transforms them into all sorts.

Madam requested the fly by night bulbs from Mary. She also took May’s neighbour Peter (Acted by Ryunosuke Kamiki) and attempted using him for another of their experiment. Mary is not willing to make Peter one of their failed experiments, would she succeed in stopping the couple? Will Peter be another failed experiment? Find out below.
