Comedic actors Adam Devine and Gillian Jacobs play rival magicians in the new Disney+ family film, Magic Camp.
Andy (Devine) returns to Magic Camp at the request of his former mentor, Roy (Jeffrey Tambor), to counsel a new generation of aspiring magicians while trying to reignite his own career.
He’s left in charge of a group of misfit campers that he has to inspire, while confronting his nemesis, Christina Darkwood (Jacobs), and her team of bully campers.
Magic Camp is a family-friendly Disney+ original film that’s suitable for all ages and looks like it features a lot of laughs.
Summer camp movies have been a common sub-genre of cinema, and the setting usually makes for a good comedy, family, or horror film.
Magic Camp’s young actors received training from real-life magicians in pre-production to build their confidence in doing tricks, which should add an element of authenticity to that aspect of the film.
It’s directed by Mark Waters, who previously directed Freaky Friday (2003) for Disney, as well as Bad Santa 2 (2016), Vampire Academy (2014), and the cult teen-movie classic, Mean Girls (2004).
The film looks like a good time for all Disney fans and releases exclusively on Disney+ on 14 August 2020.
