Animated 'Houdini' coming to DVD

NCircle Entertainment, the largest independent studio for children's non-theatrical DVDs in the U.S., has acquired Houdini (a.k.a. Little Houdini), a French feature-length animated film produced by Dandelooo. Houdini will premiere in the U.S. on DVD on September 15.

"Our team in Paris is thrilled at our new partnership with NCircle Entertainment," said Emmanuèle Pétry Sirvin of Dandelooo. "The launch of Houdini in America has special significance, knowing that this amazingly talented boy was born in Europe, then sailed to the United States where he became the greatest magician of all time."

Below is a trailer:

Thanks to iTricks for this news.

UPDATE: This DVD is now available on Amazon.



  1. Just happened to pick up & watch this today. If you haven't seen it yet, it's a pretty cute movie. My fiance and I liked it, at least. Not quite a blockbuster, but the humor was good and the animation fairly crisp. The plot was straight forward, but what does one expect from a kid's film?

    That said, I think my favorite part was the allusion to Nikola Tesla (being something of a Tesla freak myself). Can't seem to figure out if the antagonist was based on anyone though, best guess I can come up with was Frederick Braue perhaps?

    Anyway, check it out if you have the time & netflix. I think it was worth the $8 I spent on it myself.

    1. I agree. It's a very well done little film.
