Milder’s life is turned upside down after that as she is introduced to Cackle’s Academy, which is a school for witches set atop a high mountain.
The immediate thing that jumps out at the audience when they first interact with the show is whether It is similar to the most popular magical story of our generation.
Magic apart, the series is also about the sisterhood among the main characters and it is the magic of their friendship that often shines through rather than the magic itself.
