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.

Fairuza Balk, who plays a witch in both The Worst Witch, and The Craft, practices Wicca (white witchcraft) in real life.

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
