Balloon kingdoms, dopey police dragons and happy wizards are exactly how Terry remembered his Grandmother's whacky fairy tales. Except they are real and it's definitely not as 'cheerful.'

Fun and Fantastical
26 September 2018 | by dakotamillertorchlightSee all my reviews

Following Terry, voiced by Toby Kebbell, A Wizard's Tale is about a boy who is thrown into this new and fantastical world that he must save in order to return home. There he meets Princess Dawn, Lily Collins, together they are chased by an evil wizard The Grump, Ian McShane. This movie alongside its amazing voice actors who give real depth to the character creates this fantastical world that brings imagination alive in its creation. Watching this film made me feel like a kid again picturing these complex and amazing worlds. This film is for anyone who has kids or is a kid at heart.
