Editor-in-chief Renato Marafon brings a video review of the new “ Witches Convention ” and explains why you can’t be so offended by the remakes.
When the first images of Anne Hathaway were released as the villain of the new version of “Witches’ Convention,” much of the public complained about her appearance.
However, the star told Entertaiment Tonight that “it would not be respectful to approach the performance and look of Anjelica Huston in the 1990 film”.
The actress also said she wanted to build a witch who could connect with an audience that has never seen the first version or the book written by Roald Dahl.
“I wanted to make a performance as memorable for the kids today as Anjelica’s was for me. I also think it would be disrespectful to try to copy what she’s done, so the team managed to give my tall witch look and posture more creativity. His version makes sense to Nick Roeg’s brilliant film, and mine makes sense to Robert Zemeckis.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, she also admitted that it was a little scary to take on the role because of the fear of the most toxic fans.
“At first I was very nervous when I got the part. I thought: the fans [mais exigentes] will they make room for my version? Am I up to the job? But you know what? There have already been four Jokers, six Batmans, I don’t know how many James Bond. I don’t think we’re used to seeing other actresses take on big roles.
The film is already screened in national cinemas !!
Directed by Robert Zemeckis, the film is based on the eponymous 1983 book, written by Roald Dahl. The material had already been adapted for large screens in 1990, with Anjelica Huston.
The plot follows an orphan boy (Bruno) who, at the end of 1967, moves in with his beloved grandmother (Spencer) to the rural town of Demopolis, Alabama. The boy and his grandmother are faced with deceptively fascinating but completely evil witches, so the grandmother wisely takes our young hero to an opulent seaside resort. Sadly, they arrive at exactly the same time the Great Witch of the world (Hathaway) gathered her companions from around the world – in disguise – to carry out their nefarious plans.
The cast includes Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci, Jahzir Kadeem Bruno.
