Welcome back to YA Onscreen! Let's hop to.
Kate McKinnon will headline Amblin's adaptation of the YA book The Lunch Witch! I don't know the book, but I love the title, and I love Kate McKinnon.
For generations and generations, the women in her family have stirred up trouble in a big, black pot. Grunhilda inherits her famous ancestors’ recipes and cauldron, but no one believes in magic anymore. Since her only useful skill is cooking up potfuls of foul brew, she finds herself uniquely qualified to hire on as school lunch lady. Grunhilda delights in scaring the kids until she meets a timid little girl named Madison with a big set of glasses who becomes an unlikely friend. Madison needs help at school and at home, but helping people goes against everything Grunhilda’s believes in as a witch. Will she stir up trouble with her brood?
That's it for this week! Give us your thoughts downstairs.
