An Academy Award-winner for Best Visual Effects, Bedknobs and Broomsticks is a magical blend of live action and animation that makes it one of Disney's most enduring classics. This version of the film is now yours to enjoy in digital splendor remastered and fully restored! Bedknobs and Broomsticks is the enchanting story of an amateur witch who, along with three precocious orphans, flies into one fantastic adventure after another aboard a bewitched bed. The legendary Angela Lansbury is charming as the witch, and the inimitable David Tomlinson (Mary Poppins) delights as the amusing professor whose help Lansbury and the children enlist in order to find an ancient incantation that will save the country from hostile invaders! This is sure to be a film the entire family will want to watch again and again!

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: I suspect the movie will be something of a long, uninterrupted sit for the very children for whom it's intended, and an even longer one for those parents and guardians (both adults and teen-age) who will probably accompany them.
Fresh: It is when the film [based on the book by Mary Norton] dives deeply into the realms of fantasy that it is most enjoyable.
Fresh: Like Lansbury, the film has aged well and retains almost all of its magic.
Fresh: It's a little uneven but at its best Bedknobs And Broomsticks rivals the joy and wonder of Mary Poppins.
This movie was one of the cornerstones of my childhood, and now I'm so thrilled to see it here! Screw the rotten critics - it's a fantastic musical and a must see!
I'm sooo glad iTunes FINALLY added this movie, and for purchase to boot!!!
I have enjoyed this movie since I was a child and they children I take care of have come to love it as well. It is as timeless as Mary Poppins. If you have never seen it you relly should.
So great to watch again :)
Seriously, iTunes needs to ditch Rotten Tomatoes "the movie will be to long for children"- well, over 30 years of staying power and love from children who watch it repeatedly should tell you that is not true. An amazing classic children's tale I am sure will continue to delight for many years to come.
