Kate McKinnon Set To Star In The Lunch Witch
McKinnon, of course, is also known for her regular role as a Not Ready For Prime Time Player on Saturday Night Live, earning an Emmy just this year for her time on the show. In addition, she is currently appearing in another Amblin production, Office Christmas Party:
It will be intriguing to see what she does with The Lunch Witch, as Grunhilda. For generations and generations, the women in her family have stirred up trouble in a big, black pot. Grunhilda inherits her famous ancestors’ recipes and cauldron, but no one believes in magic anymore. Since her only useful skill is cooking up potfuls of foul brew, she finds herself uniquely qualified to hire on as school lunch lady. Grunhilda delights in scaring the kids until she meets a timid little girl named Madison with a big set of glasses who becomes an unlikely friend. Madison needs help at school and at home, but helping people goes against everything Grunhilda’s believes in as a witch. Will she stir up trouble with her brood?
Prior to Angry Birds, Kaytis worked as an animator on such films as Frozen, Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph.
