The Good Witch’s Wonder (2014)

October 25, 2014 2 Comments

The seventh title in a long-running, beloved – and popular, Hallmark Channel again invites us into the magical world of Cassie Nightingale (Catherine Bell).

The Good Witch’s Wonder (2014) Hallmark TV Film Review

Life is feeling a bit restless for Cassie as it shifts to change her happy family. Lori (Hannah Edicott-Douglas) is in college busy with homework, dating and the work she does on the school paper. Brandon (Matthew Knight) too is becoming successful in his career and has a fiancée he’s planning a wedding with. Then there is her daughter, Grace who has special talents of her own. Talents that just may have something to teach her grandfather (Peter MacNeill) who is feeling very out-of-place in Grace’s world. Jake (Chris Potter) is currently dealing with the changes that the town’s new mayor, Martha Tisdale (Catherine Disher) is putting in place. This leaves Cassie with little but her shop to occupy her time. When a stranger appears in town, Cassie is again needed to help a situation – and to hopefully, bring about some happiness.

These films were starting up when I binge-watched JAG. Naturally, because of this, Catherine Bell starring made me curious. Soon as is possible, I found the first movie and discovered a memorable character. What I love so much about the evolution of these stories and the characters is how from first script to this seventh, there’s not only a story within the movies, but each one continues to build on their lives. From her arrival in Middleton to finding a family of her own, it’s a nice journey for fans to follow.

This installment is just as memorable and in some ways bittersweet as the very beginning. I confess if I’m being picky I don’t love some minor casting choices, but am happy that everyone is still in their primary roles. This includes Jake and Cassie and their children (makes the camaraderie all the more genuine). It’s a joy to see the familiar faces playing characters fans have come to love rooting on. Changes do take shape, which I can only imagine is the transition into the 2015 premiere of the television show; a series that will retain some of its primary cast and gain some new faces, one of whom is Bailee Madison.

I very much look forward to watching the interim stories I missed. If these are an indication, fans of this series are going to again fall head over heels for the charms that is the Good Witch; it’s really the sweetest kind of family movie.

      I know, me too! It'd make watching these much simpler for most viewers. Since nearly all of the movies are on DVD now, hopefully this one will follow suit. *fingers crossed*
