While the first film had an exciting feel to it, Return to Witch Mountain was a bit of a let-down. It had more of a made-for-TV feel to it

Better structured and faster-moving than its predecessor … disappointingly, Tony spends almost the whole film separated from Tia in a trance-like state, so the siblings' relationship is lost.

Probably the closest Disney ever came to making a grindhouse film, starring Christopher Lee and Bette Davis as villains

Audience Reviews for Return from Witch Mountain


A sequel from Escape to Witch Mountain is an okay family film, but weak Disney. Christopher Lee and Bette Davis' performances were average so are the special effects. I can't wait to see the new reimagining of Witch Mountain starring Dwayne Johnson this year.

Psychic space kids Tony and Tia are separated in an urban setting. Bette Davis and Christopher Lee are using Tony's powers to steal gold. Tia must enlist the help of a street gang to rescue her brother. It's a lot of ultra-cool Disney fun. The scene where Tony robs the western museum and animates the mannequins was freaky. The scene where Tia enpowers Jack Soo's bus was memorable. Not as fresh as the original movie, but it's rare that we see psychic children using their powers for good.

Tony and Tia are back for more fantastical adventures in Return From Witch Mountain. While visiting Pasadena Tony is abducted and brainwashed by a scientist in order to use his telepathic powers for evil, meanwhile his sister Tia befriends a local street gang who offer to help her find her brother. Christopher Lee and Bette Davis co-star and make for an interesting pair of villains. Additionally, the film is fairly good at creating stakes and bringing an element of danger to the telepathic powers. Fun and exciting, Return From Witch Mountain is an impressive sequel that's better than the original.
