List of movies where something out of the ordinary (generally magical or paranormal) happens to groups of kids, teenagers and even some adults...Alphabetical order!
Teen Wolf Michael J. Fox, Doug Savant, James Hampton
High school's getting hairy!!! Haha. Sorry. Seriously though, how many werewolf comedies are there? Okay, how many GOOD ones? There ya go.
I Am Number Four Dianna Agron, Teresa Palmer, Alex Pettyfer
Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief Uma Thurman, Pierce Brosnan, Rosario Dawson
Harry Potter franchise
I should think this entire series fits neatly into this category....witches, wizards. goblins, dragons, basilisks, etc...
The Sorcerer's Apprentice Nicolas Cage, Monica Bellucci, Teresa Palmer
How to Train Your Dragon Gerard Butler, Kristen Wiig, David Tennant
Beastly Vanessa Hudgens, Neil Patrick Harris, Mary-Kate Olsen
The Chronicles of Narnia Franchise
It's a supernatural movie about some kids growing up. I preferred the BBC version, but this one was good in a more modern-type of way.
The Covenant Chace Crawford, Jessica Lucas, Taylor Kitsch
Sky High Kurt Russell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Lynda Carter
Kids who have parents with superpowers apparently go to THIS high school! A whole lot of fun!! Get ready for some major camp, and a lot of GREAT characters!
Matilda Danny DeVito, Mara Wilson, Paul Reubens
I also never read Roald Dahl's Matilda. This is really a fantastic movie! Definitely fits more into the 'fantasy' genre....beautiful scenes; very colorful! And, wow! What a cast!
Eclipse Kristen Stewart, Ashley Greene, Anna Kendrick
Ella Enchanted Anne Hathaway, Heidi Klum, Vivica A. Fox
Very 'Cinderella' meets 'Enchanted'. Very, very girly. I enjoyed it. :)
Alice in Wonderland Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter
Jumanji Kirsten Dunst, Robin Williams, Patricia Clarkson
This movie is particularly fun. Who doesn't actually want to be in a board game? Seriously.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Christopher Lee
Being one of the millions of Johnny fanatics, I ate this up. Don't get me wrong, the other one is still a classic, but this one was closer to the book (yeah, I'm one of THOSE people).
Stardust Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert De Niro, Claire Danes
Aquamarine Emma Roberts, JoJo, Sara Paxton
Zombieland Emma Stone, Amber Heard, Bill Murray
Nanny McPhee Emma Thompson, Angela Lansbury, Colin Firth
Yes, you're totally right. It's like 'Mary Poppins' meets Tim Burton. Wickedly fun!
Red Riding Hood Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, Julie Christie
Eragon Rachel Weisz, John Malkovich, Jeremy Irons
Based on the book series by Christopher Paolini. This is one of the ones that if you've read the book, you'll hate it, but if not, it's great! Did have a good cast.
Casper Christina Ricci, Bill Pullman, Cathy Moriarty
Say what you will. This movie was AWESOME.
The Spiderwick Chronicles Nick Nolte, Seth Rogen, Mary-Louise Parker
This one was just cool. Just so cool. Also based on a book series, this film stars Freddie Highmore and Freddie Highmore doing the 'Parent Trap' thing by playing believable twin brothers! I would see it for his acting alone.
