Treguna Mekoides Trecorum Satis Dee!
That can only mean one thing… it’s time for BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS! The spell has been cast and Teresa Delgado of Fangirls Going Rogue and Disney Vault Talk joins us to talk about this much-loved 1971 film. Sherman Brother’s music, animation meeting live-action and some glorious 1970’s revolutionary effects make this film an instant classic. Sarah and Teresa grew up with Bedknobs and Broomsticks, and Richard is now the newbie, just watching it for the very first time.
If you’ve never seen it or haven’t watched in awhile, here’s a plot refresher:
During the Battle of Britain in 1940, Miss Eglantine Price (played by future Mrs. Potts – Angela Lansbury), a cunning witch-in-training, wants to help the war efforts and use her supernatural powers to defeat the pending Nazi invasion.
Miss Price sets out to accomplish this task with the aid of three orphaned children who have been evacuated from the London Blitz. However they need the last spell from magician/steet performer/Witch school sheister Emelius Brown (played by David Tomlinson who is best known as Mr. Banks from Mary Poppins). Together, the crew uses an enchanted flying bed to find the missing spell and foil encroaching German troops.
STEP IN TIME: Remembering Disney’s Matinee Movies is a spin-off show where we look back at the Disney live-action films of yesteryear. If you are already subscribed to Skywalking Through Neverland – do nothing! This show will appear in your feed. Have fun reminicing with us.
