The critical consensus

Yonebayashi pays perfect tribute to Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli with this bewitching and visually dazzling adventure. Studio Ponoc is off to a flying start.

Mary And The Witch’s Flower may not break new ground but it’s an impressive affair.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 02/05/2018

The fantasy surroundings are more fully realised than the characters, though it’s all rooted in classic children’s literature.

The film has charm as well as a certain deja vu for audiences, although for me it didn’t quite have the distinction of Marnie.
