In World War II England, apprentice-witch Eglantine Price is charged with three young orphans who quickly learn her secret. In order to keep them from telling the world she’s a witch, she places a traveling spell on a bedknob of the bed they share. It proves more than fanciful when the children travel to London with Eglantine to discover the second half of a spell that could help the war effort.
Bedknobs and Broomsticks played at the 2004 Heartland Film Festival in the Truly Moving Musicals Sidebar.
