We believe the following trivia is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
If you look at Harry Potter and The Worst Witch, you will find interesting parallels: They are a witch and a wizard; They both go to an academy; The teachers teach kids spells; The presentations take place in "The Great Hall."
Anna Kipling who played Ethel Hallow, also sang the 50th anniversary song "Happy Anniversary to You!" in 1987 to commemorate the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Disney Film "Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs".
Fairuza Balk plays the main character of Mildred Hubble. She can also be seen in "Return To Oz" the 80s sequel to "The Wizard of Oz," where Fairuza plays Dororthy Gayle. She is also seen in "The Craft" playing Nancy and she makes a cameo appearance as a groupie in "Almost Famous."
The spell used for bewitching Ethel's broomstick includes nonsense English words strung together to fit a rhyme. "Fire and alabaster. Rummy, Canasta. When I say faster. I order, disaster." This seems to be the running theme through the film with the ridiculously made up spells.
More similarities between this movie and Harry Potter are, both Harry Potter and The Worst Witch have prefects, both have flying lessons, and you can see a distinct similarity between the potion teachers... Snape and Ms. Hardbroom
