A retired magician’s troupe of animal friends band together to save his mansion from a realtor’s sales pitch. House of Magic opens with Thunder, an abandoned cat looking for shelter from a storm, who finds a dry space in a strange house full of automatons and gizmos. Initially rejected by the magician’s other snooty animals, the young cat wins the affection of the “The Illustrious Lorenzo” himself. When an accident lands Lorenzo in the hospital, his scheming nephew finds an opportunity to sell the mansion. Without Lorenzo at home, it is up to his furry friends to defeat the realtor’s plans by turning the house into a seemingly haunted mansion. Directors Ben Stassen and Jérémie Degruson have created a world full of imagination and overflowing with fabulous 3D set pieces. From an early montage of Lorenzo’s magic performances to a bravura finale against the realtor’s final desperate act, House of Magic gives thrills and laughter to anyone in its vicinity. Recommended for ages 6+ (contains comic violence)
