Duwayne Dunham’s Disney Channel classic ‘Halloweentown’ follows the story of the Piper children as they learn that their mother and grandmother are both secretly witches and discover their own magical powers. Marnie, Dylan, and Sophie never get to celebrate Halloween like the other kids because their mother Gwen won’t allow it. The kids fail to understand why their mom is so against Halloween. When their Grandma Aggie arrives, she tells them stories about a spooky land called Halloweentown, where mystical and magical creatures all live together in peace.

One night, Marnie overhears her mother and grandmother arguing about Marnie being raised as a normal human instead of a witch. When Grandma Aggie leaves for her home, of course, the kids all follow her sneakily and enter the real Halloweentown. There are vampires, witches, and monsters who keep disappearing from Halloweentown, leading Aggie to believe that something spooky is afoot. When Gwen realizes her kids are all gone, she follows them all to Halloweentown.

Together, Aggie, Gwen, and the kids discover the evil plot of a fearsome villain and use their magical powers to defeat him. This 1998 classic stars Debbie Reynolds, Kimberly J. Brown, and Judith Hoag in leading roles. It’s always a great and fun watch around Halloween, especially if you have kids. Curious to know where ‘Halloweentown’ was filmed?
