School of Magical Animals

The charming live-action adventure with CGI animated animals about an unusual school where the children receive a magical animal as a companion, centers on new girl Ida, who goes from being an outsider to the star student thanks to her magical animal, the talking fox Rabbat. Ida has had to move to another town and is now the "new girl" at the Winterstein School. She has a hard time in the new class: bitchy Helene makes sure that Ida has scant chance of making friends, and there is only one place left for her on the first day of school: next to outsider Benni. One day, her teacher introduces the children to Mortimer Morrison, who travels the world looking for "magical animals". Each of these animals is destined to become a child's soulmate. Of all people, newcomer Ida and outsider Benni are the first in the class to have magical companions. From now on, Benni has the ancient, wise turtle Henrietta at his side and Ida the cunning fox Rabbat. When objects keep disappearing at school, the children and the magical animals must stick together to solve the mystery of the school thief.
