I received a copy of Thunder and the House of Magic to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Thunder and the House of Magic is an animated family adventure. This internationally acclaimed film delivers a great movie viewing experience for the entire family.
The film centers around the main character, Thunder, an abandoned cat who cannot find a new home. When he stumbles upon an old magical mansion, he meets a group of unique characters.
The mansion is owned by a magician. It is full of magical animals, cool automatons and fun gizmos. At first, the residents of the home arent too happy about their new houseguest. However, the magician is extremely welcoming to the lonely cat.
The magician ends up in the hospital and his nephew schemes to try to put the mansion up for sale without his knowledge. To save the house and help the magician, all of the animals, automatons and gizmos come together as a team.
We had a family movie night and watched this film. We all enjoyed the graphics and fun characters. The story is cute and the characters are really memorable.
My daughter loved the automatons and gizmos. Her favorite character was the adorable lightbulb. The mansion itself is really cool and full of all sorts of magical displays.
This is a great movie that adults and kids will enjoy watching together.
