13 Magical Truths About “Bedknobs And Broomstricks”

13 Magical Truths About “Bedknobs And Broomstricks”

Way before Angela Lansbury was the victim of magic and turned into a human-turned-tea kettle called Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the Beast, she was creating magic as Miss Eglantine Price in Bedknobs and Broomsticks.
Here are 13 mystical truths about the cherished Disney classic.

1. DISNEY SOUGHT JULIE ANDREWS FOR THE LEAD ROLE.

Since Mary Poppins had been an incredible accomplishment for Disney, they attempted to rope in Julie Andrews to star in Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Like Mary Poppins, Bedknobs highlighted magic, music, animated portions, and even a similar director, i.e. Robert Stevenson and co-star David Tomlinson, Mr. Banks from Mary Poppins. Apprehensive of being pigeonholed, Andrews turned it down. When she changed her opinion a couple of months later, Angela Lansbury had already been finalised.

 

2. THE FILM WAS BASED ON TWO BOOKS BY MARY NORTON.

Instead of adapting a single book for the film, Disney took elements from two books by Mary Norton: The Magic Bed-Knob and Bonfires and Broomsticks.
