Majinx: Professor Wick’s Incredible Magic Factory

Professor Wick invites you on a tour of his Incredible Magic Factory, where he designs and constructs magical props. As he’ll tell you himself, some of his best ideas come from the pages of books such as Alice in Wonderland, Aladdin, Pinocchio, and Peter Pan. Pulling some of these classics off the shelf, the professor brings their magic to life as he floats on a magic carpet, steps through a mirror, and even turns a puppet into a real person. These are just a few of the magical adventures in store for audiences when they enter the wonderful world of Professor Wick.
