Synopsis: When Owen and his family inherit his uncle Bob’s rundown circus, it seems more like a curse than a gift. But it becomes an entryway to magical adventure when Owen is presented with a mysterious box of animal crackers — with the power to transform the bearer into any animal in the box! It looks like the circus will be a success, until Bob’s villainous brother learns about the box … and he will stop at nothing to get it!
The star-studded cast includes Emmy nominee John Krasinski (The Office) as Owen, Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place franchise) as Zoe, Emmy winner Danny DeVito (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) as Chesterfield, Ian McKellen (The Lord of the Rings franchise) as Horatio P.
