The movie based on Margit Auer’s hit book series School of Magical Animals is a great fun and fast-paced adventure for kids and the whole family!

Ida must move. Far from her home, school, and most of all: far from her friends. She is having a rough time in her new chapter. One day, the class teacher, Miss Kornfield, announces that soon every child in the class will have a magical animal companion. Ironically, strangers Ida and Penny are the first to greet their new buddies, who will become lifelong friends. Ida nicknames the Fox Garter, Benny the Turtle, Henrietta. Not only can magical animals talk, they each have their own character. While the Henrietta is a bit slow but 200 years old and very wise, the Rabbat is just as smart as he is clever. Suddenly, Ribat has made Ida a class star and everyone wants to be friends with her. On the other hand, Benny remains an outsider. But at least he can skate with Henrietta and share his passion for pirates. There is more excitement at school: things keep disappearing, the school robber is about to get hurt! Unbridled suspicions spread and the exciting search for the culprit begins.
