This fast-paced Disney endeavor stars Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann as two adolescents with acute psychic powers.

Escape to Witch Mountain is one of my favorite Disney movies! I first saw it in a movie theater when I was around 9 or 10 years old and I have very fond memories of this cute, charming movie! When I found out that this movie was on DVD I bought it and I really had a good time watching it again! Kim Richards, Ike Eisenmann and Eddie Albert are all still wonderful and I recommend this movie!
This was my favorite of the Disney live action movies when I was growing up. If you or your children have not seen this, you are missing out!
I loved this movie as a child and everyone I have asked about it looked at me like I had three heads. No one has ever known what on earth I was talking about! Now, finally, it's on DVD and I am so excited!!! This is as wonderful as when I finally proved to my husband the Disney short - ''The Old Mill'' really existed - when it came out on the special edition Cartoon shorts DVD called ''Walt Disney Treasures: Silly Symphonies''.
i also loved this movie as a child and now i have introduced it to my kids. my 5 year old says it is one of her favorite movies!
