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.'

Overall, I was very impressed by this independent animation
26 September 2018 | by kelseyhealey-86169See all my reviews

The animated film A Wizard's Tale directed by Andres Couturier was a fun and vibrant adventure. This children's film of good vs. evil is an amusing story that keeps your attention with its colorful characters voiced by the talented Lily Collins, Ian McShane, and Toby Kebbell. I got lost in the story and found myself routing for the main character Terry (Toby Kebbell), a teenage boy who gets transported to a magical kingdom where it finds himself helping a princess defend her kingdom. The story line is dynamic and the soundtrack includes upbeat songs which amplify the energetic atmosphere created in the film. The animation was very impressive, I think Craig Kellem did a great job designing the characters in a bubbly style that I haven't seen before which made the human characters look lively. I was also impressed by the amount of wacky supporting characters the film had which elevated the entertainment value. Overall, I was very impressed by this independent animation and I highly recommend watching A Wizard's Tale.
