The Witches is being made available to watch at home in the UK.
The second big screen adaptation of Roald Dahl's creepy tale stars Anne Hathaway as the Grand High Witch and is directed by Back to The Future filmmaker, Robert Zemeckis.
Already confirmed to be made available on streaming service HBO Max in the US, Warner Bros has revealed the movie will be available to UK viewers to rent on Premium Video On Demand (PVOD) from October 26 — four days later than the US and just in time for Halloween.
The Witches will be available to watch instantly for a 48-hour rental from participating digital retailers.
Digital Spy has reached out to Warner Brothers to query whether the film will still be released in cinemas.
Also starring Stanley Tucci and Octavia Spencer, The Witches tells the story of a young boy who runs into a group of witches with disastrous results.
Speaking previously, Anne Hathaway revealed her character was a "total collaboration" between many departments.
"[She] was a total collaboration between costumes, hair and make-up, the writers, my dialect coach, the effects department, stunts, [director] Bob Zemeckis and myself," she told People.
"She is such a weirdo – so silly and over the top – and everyone had to work together to be on the same page so it felt big and entertaining but never too much."
Roald Dahl's The Witches will be available to stream on Premium Video On Demand (PVOD) from October 26 in the UK and HBO Max in the US from October 22.
