Disney’s cult classic teenage sci-fi thriller Escape to Witch Mountain centers on Tia (Kim Richards) and Tony (Ike Eisenmann), two orphaned youngsters with extraordinary powers. A scheming millionaire named Lucas Deranian (Donald Pleasence) poses as their uncle in order to get the kids into the clutches of Deranian’s megalomanical boss, evil millionaire Aristotle Bolt (Ray Milland), who wants to exploit them and their gifts.

A cynical widower named Jason (Eddie Albert) helps Tia and Tony “escape to witch mountain,” while at the same time the youngsters help Jason escape the pain of the loss of his wife.
