Storyline

In "Upside-Down Magic, a Disney Channel Original Movie, 13-year-old Nory Boxwood Horace discovers she can flux into animals, and her best friend Reina Carvajal can manipulate flames. Together, they enter the Sage Academy for Magical Studies. Reina's expert ability to harness the power of fire lands her at the top of her class of "Flares," but Nory's wonky magic and proclivity for turning into a "Dritten"-a half-kitten, half-dragon-lands her in a class for those with Upside-Down Magic, otherwise known as UDM. While Headmaster Knightslinger believes the UDM's unconventional powers leave them vulnerable to dangerous and evil "shadow magic," Nory and her fellow UDM classmates set out to prove that Upside-Down Magic beats right side up.

Nothing at all like the books
11 October 2020 | by laurasmall-72495See all my reviews

My son and I are huge fans of the books and was expecting so much more from this I only gave it a 3 because my son still enjoyed parts of the movie but for me it was a huge disappointment They missed out several important characters, the fact Nory went to live with her aunt and also changed some characters powers completely For me it was a complete let down when it had so much potential to be something special
