The shooting of a second part is said to have just ended. Before that, however, the first part of the “School of Magical Animals” comes to our cinemas.
Berlin – It is an adaptation of a children's book series, of which over 7 million books are said to have already been sold, which have already been translated into over 20 languages: Director Gregor Schnitzler ("Solo album") has this story about talking animals and school children accepted. The literary template comes from the author Margit Auer. The focus is on Ida, who initially has a hard time at the new school after moving. But then she is given a magical animal at her side: a cuddly, sweet, talking fox.
