(JTA) — The Jewish sister rock band Haim is getting into the movie business.

The trio will soundtrack the Netflix animated feature “The Witch Boy,” which will be based on a three-book graphic novel series of the same name by Molly Knox Ostertag.

The fantasy musical is set in a magical community where all the girls become witches and the boys grow into shapeshifters. It centers on a boy, Aster, who discovers he has witch powers and needs to use those powers when a mysterious danger emerges. It will be directed by Minkyu Lee, Academy Award nominated for the animated short film “Adam and Dog.”

It’s a story “celebrating queerness,” Lee has said.

Perhaps an Oscar is in the cards for the girls who were first paid in matzah ball soup.
