“Merry the Christmas Witch” is the first Holiday Classic motion picture that encompasses the expanded commercial season from Halloween to Christmas. And in its central character, Merry the Christmas Witch, it adds the first evergreen female Holiday Superstar to our shared constellation of Holiday stars.
Based on the Bobbi Hess book “Merry the Christmas Witch,” the movie “A Christmas Witch” amps up the drama, stakes, heart, humor and teen appeal of the original material, and is sure to become our first triple threat holiday classic.
Louisiana is a state of magic, mystery and miracles. So it is quite natural that a “good” little witch would be born in the deep bayous of Louisiana on Christmas Day! No witch was ever been born on Christmas Day. When this happened, the other witches did not know what to do. Since She was born on Christmas, they decided to call her Merry. The Grand Witch, Esmeralda wanted Merry to be a traditional Witch. But being a traditional witch was not something that Merry was meant to be. The other witches tried to get Merry to wear a black gown and black hat. But Merry wears a big red hat with a jingle bell. All witches ride brooms but not Merry. She rides on a Christmas candy cane.
When the other witches finally get their chance to ruin Christmas by kidnapping Santa Claus, an epic battle in the witch Kingdom occurs with Merry and Santa’s helpers in the fight to rescue Santa!
