Their world is closer than you think.
Anything Harry can do, I can do better...
Based on the popular children's series of books, the first movie in the franchise introduces us to the two twins and their older sister, who have recently moved with their divorced mom into a very old abandoned family home. One of the twins discovers an old book, and, ignoring warnings, opens it and begins to read. This action causes the mysterious creatures living in the house and surrounding woods to be attracted and visible, leading the siblings into adventure and danger.
