Disney releases trailer for “Race To Witch Mountain”

I can remember all the way back to 1975 and seeing Disney’s Escape to Witch Mountain in the theater. I was seven years old at the time it came out in March of that year. I don’t remember a whole lot from that age, but I definitely remember that movie because I thought it was the coolest thing I’d ever seen. I so wanted to be like the kids in that movie that I had dreams about it for weeks to come. I can also vividly remember the sequel, Return from Witch Mountain, which came out three years later. The fact that I loved both movies as a kid shows that my critical thinking skills still had a ways to go as watching the films today I can see a lot of flaws in them, but they still hold a special place in my memories of childhood.

So it goes without saying that I was intrigued to find a trailer for the remake titled Race to Witch Mountain:

I know you can’t judge a movie by its trailer, but I’d be lying if I didn’t mention that my inner-7 and 10 year-olds are totally geeking out over that trailer.

  1. Is it me or is the only thing similar between these movies is there are twins with special powers. The original they weren’t Aliens or nearly as bad ass. I feel anger, but it’s ok. I just have to remind myself that the rock makes everything better.

  2. These movies were on my list of favorites as a kid too. And I knew it was only a matter of time before a remake, being Disney.

    So now, half of me is screaming NOOO and the other half is screaming YESSSS…

  3. Actually, AA, in the first one, they were aliens.  We just didn’t find out until the end.  And they weren’t as badass because special effects weren’t as good as they are now.
