Thunder and the House of Magic DVD Review



From the producers of a Turtle’s Tale & A Turtle’s Tale 2  comes a spectacular adventure for the whole family featuring the Music of Selena Gomez.  It is available exclusively at Walmart stores everywhere.

This fall, venture inside an intriguing mansion full of endearing animals and a dazzling array of automatons and gizmos, and spellbound by the exciting animated adventure of THUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC. Already a great box-office success in much of the world, this highly entertaining family movie is directed by renowned 3D filmmakers Ben Stassen (Fly Me to the Moon, Sammy’s Adventures: Escape from Paradise) and Jeremie Degruson (A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Adventure), with original music by Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones). The film also features the music by Selena Gomez.

THUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC is a whimsical animated family adventure, bringing to life a unique story with a great sense of humour, positive values and universal appeal.  Brimming with spectacular animation and endearing characters, this internationally acclaimed motion picture delivers a fun and captivating movie experience for the entire family.

The film tells the story of Thunder, an abandoned young cat who stumbles into a magical old mansion operated by a dazzling array of automatons and gizmos. Owned by a retired magician, the house is occupied by an assortment of his wacky assistants who don’t all welcome the new houseguest. But when the magician lands in the hospital and his scheming nephew puts the mansion up for sale, our young hero and his new friends join forces to save their magical home.

Filled with laughter and adventure, Thunder and The House of Magic is a wonderful tale that you and your little ones will love.


 This is such a cute family film, and the animation looks great, especially for a direct to video release and a DVD at that.  I’d love to see the Blu-ray or even the 3D version, I can only imagine how fabulous they would be visually.  There are even some pretty cool shots taken from the point of view of Thunder that play like a roller-coaster ride.

The audio features some immersion effects which played nicely on my surround sound.  Details like that can really make a film extra fun.

The film advertises that it features music by Selena Gomez but that is a bit misleading as the only Selena Gomez song I heard was in the end credits.  The opening of the film is more aptly played to the tune of The Cure’s The Love Cats.

As for Keira, she demanded we watch “The Kitty” three times today alone.  I think that says it all.
