"Being normal is vastly overrated," according to Aggie Cromwell.
Growing up watching Disney Channel, there was only one movie series that mattered come October: the "Halloweentown" franchise. I remember riding broomsticks on cool October nights, pretending my sister and I lived in a mystical other world. I was a witch for three Halloweens in a row and was convinced I had secret magic powers like Marnie.
While "Halloweentown High" will always be my favorite of the four movies, I jumped at the chance to watch a childhood favorite again.
For those of you who lived under a rock and never watched Disney Channel, "Halloweentown" is a 1998 Disney Channel Original Movie centered around Marnie Piper (Kimberly J. Brown), a 13-year-old girl who just wants to be able to go out on Halloween like all the other kids — especially since she’s obsessed with things like ghosts and witches.
On Marnie’s 13th Halloween, her grandmother Aggie Cromwell (Debbie Reynolds) comes to visit and is revealed to be a witch. She needs Marnie’s mother Gwen (Judith Hoag) to come back to her home world, Halloweentown, to fight a mysterious evil force arising there.
