Overview
What would you wish for if you were granted a new wish every day? That's the delightful situation five children face when they're sent to live with their eccentric uncle in his moldering mansion while their father fights in World War I. There they discover It, a cranky fairy who makes their wishes come true!

This exuberant adaption of E. Nesbit's beloved classic features young Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Choclate Factory, Finding Neverland), Kenneth Branagh and Zoë Wanamaker (both veterns of the Harry Potter film series), comedy star Eddie Izzard as the voice of It, and the film wizardry of the Jim Henson Creature Shop. With a houseful of clones, a runaway motorcar, flying children, a ferocious T. Rex and all the other chaos the wishes bring, Five Children and It is all the family fun you could wish for.
