Picture this: it’s Oct. 17, 1998, you’re in your favorite pajamas, and you’ve finally convinced your parents to let you watch the latest Disney Channel Original Movie. Bowl of popcorn in hand, the title screen flashes across your television: Halloweentown. Let’s face it, there were many of us who watched that movie and immediately wondered, “Am I a witch?” and subsequently tried to cast spells in our heads. No? Just me? Well, for anyone who grew up alongside Marnie Piper (Kimberly J. Brown) and wished their grandma was as whimsically fabulous as Aggie Cromwell, played by the late Debbie Reynolds, your witchy dreams are coming true!
Join us along with Kimberly J. Brown and Freeform to celebrate Halloweentown’s 22nd birthday on Saturday, Oct. 17, over on Twitter, where we’ll be watching the movie that started it all. Tune into Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween at 9:55p PT/8:55 CT or stream it on Disney+, and then ask questions, tell us about your favorite moments, and follow along with us, Freeform, and Kimberly J. Brown on Twitter with the hashtags #Halloweentown and #31NightsofHalloween. Halloweentown taught us that “being normal is vastly overrated,” and most importantly, that “Halloween is cool!” We can’t wait relive the witchy goodness!
