THE WIZARD

A stellar eBay purchase, I jumped around when my DVD copy of The Wizard was finally delivered.

The Wizard is a 1989 adventure dramedy film starring a young Fred Savage, Luke Edwards and Jenny Lewis (scrapes into the 90s because it was released in Australia in 1990).

The film follows three children who run away from home and hitch cross country to compete in the ultimate video game championship. 

The Wizard is famous for its numerous references to video games and accessories for the NES and has been called a feature length commercial.

The film was also well known for being North America’s introduction to what would become one of the best-selling video games of all time, Super Mario Brosthers 3.

Remember the “Power Glove” LOL.

Imagine being a video games savant… gotta be every kids dream in the 90s and WTF Nintendo, a magic flute that let’s you warp worlds! Love it.
