3 April 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I must say, even though I am now officially considered an adult, I enjoy Wizards very much. I believe that no one is ever "too old" to watch Disney - they do not only target children, their movies always have a deep and highly philosophical meaning, yet they are entertaining and accessible to children. Although not all of their shows are as interesting, I find Wizards to be not only entertaining but also very endearing. I pride Disney on their amazing casting, in everything. They appeal to different audiences by including many different elements - I for one, look for the romantic part of the story, yet quite enjoy everything that comes with it. Another thing I would like to congratulate Disney for is their ability to include many different dimensions into the same work, be it a show, a movie or something else. I find Wizards an amazing way to wind down and relax after a long and hard day at university, and how can a girl not enjoy watching David Henrie? ;) Although I must say that all of the actors are very talented and the come together in an amazing tandem. I wish them luck and joy in their work! Keep it up! And Thank You :)
