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 MoonSammy’s AdventuresEscape from Paradise) and Jeremie Degruson (A Turtle’s TaleSammy’s Adventure), with original music by Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones). The film also features the music by Selena Gomez.  My daughter loves Selena Gomez and her music in this movie fits wonderfully!  Plus, we have an orange tabby who looks just like Thunder.  We made the rather emotional decision to get him for my daughter’s fifth birthday.  This picture was taken in our bathroom the first day we (Kate and I) brought him home.  I texted my husband and said “look at this kitty Kate wants for her birthday.”  His response “Is that our bathroom?”  We still laugh about it today!  I mean what was he going to say at that point?  Take him back!  We love orange cats and this was a fun movie for us to watch together.

  4. The story of the abandoned cat whose cruel owner dumps him when they move house.

    Alone and unprotected the lovely cat faces a difficult challenge for survival and as he wanders the streets manages to enter a house that had already other animals in it as well as various gadgets. The owner embraces him instantly but some of the other guests are reluctant to accept him and so he has to earn their trust.

    The opportunity to do so will come as a wicked nephew wants to sell the house.

    An appealing story combined with high quality visuals, giving us an angle of the world from the point of view of a small animal. Various themes are involved such as abandonment, new beginnings, fitting in and proving oneself.

    When it comes to protecting our home, one better not underestimate the determination of even the smallest of opponents.

    It will surely delight children without leaving the adults unimpressed either.
