Seeking shelter from a storm, abandoned young cat Thunder sneaks into a mysterious mansion owned by retired magician Lawrence, aka “The Illustrious Lorenzo”. Lawrence shares his fairy-tale world with many animals and a dazzling array of automatons and gizmos capable of whipping up breakfast while rolling out a spectacular song-and-dance routine.
Described (www.rottentomatoes.com) as a unique story with great humor, positive values and universal appeal, Geoffrey MacNab likewise credits the movie’s Belgian director and 3D pioneer Ben Stassen as a modern-day Georges Méliès, a film-maker working in Brussels whose animated features compete on almost level terms with those made by Pixar and Dreamworks.
While Liz Whittemore of The ReelNewsDaily.com says that “'Thunder and the House of Magic' will put a spell on the entire family. This film is a heartwarming story of friendship and belonging, with a soundtrack that makes you want to get up and dance! Filled with a colorful cast of memorable characters, everyone will fall in love.' Thunder and The House of Magic' is a joy.”
