MARY AND THE WITCH'S FLOWER is an animated fantasy film in which a young girl is transported to a land of magic after discovering a rare flower.

Threat

Scenes of threat include a boy and several animals being subjected to 'transformation' experiments which involve them being turned into magical hybrid creatures. In several scenes, a girl loses control of her flying broomstick and lands badly, at one point suffering slightly grazed palms. There are also some sequences in which a girl and boy are pursued by fantastical creatures controlled by an evil witch.
