Upside-Down Magic (TV)

Disney Channel Original Movie; premiered Jul. 31, 2020. 13-year-old Nory discovers that she can flux into animals and that her best friend, Reina, can manipulate flames. Together, they enter the Sage Academy for Magical Studies. Reina’s expert ability lands her at the top of her class, but Nory’s wonky magic and proclivity for turning into a Dritten—a half-kitten, half-dragon—lands her in a class for those with upside-down magic. While Headmaster Knightslinger believes these unconventional powers leave the students vulnerable to dangerous shadow magic, Nory and her classmates set out to prove that upside-down magic beats right-side up.
