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.'

A Wizard's Tale
25 September 2018 | by katstolleSee all my reviews

As a lover of animated films, such as How to Train Your Dragon and Shrek, A Wizard's Tale did not disappoint! Written by Ice Age 2's, Jim Hecht, this comedy was good for the whole family. It's a fun film with bright colors and lively characters. Lily Collins and Toby Kebbell, starring as Princess Dawn and Terry Dexter, bring this story to life with their voice acting skills. We follow them through the ups and downs of saving both a magical kingdom and an amusement park. As a fan of these actors I can definitely say that this movie is a must see. Not only were there jokes for the adults, but there were important messages for the kids. A princess who learned that she didn't need a prince and a boy reminded not to lose his belief in magic. I was easily swept into this fantastical story and would recommend to anyone who likes animation or is simply looking for something new on movie night.
