Accuracy of Book Profile

It is accurate

Draw of Story

The story begins with a heartbreaking look at Edwin’s story. He is trying to stop his father from abandoning him and his family. He is devastated at the events and a creature takes over his body. The story takes a turn to the fantasy quickly, piquing the interest of the audience.

Possible Drawbacks

The story drags a bit without a driving plot. There are many events occurring but not a central plot. The story follows Aeva and William as they try to help the students at ChateauBois Academy overcome their insecurities, toxic behaviors and learn how to accept themselves. While inspiring, it becomes repetitive. The story isn’t enthralling.

Use of Special Effects

THE STORY RELIES A LITTLE BIT ON SPECIAL EFFECTS

Primary Hook of Story

The hook is that the members of House of the Universe go into the world to encourage positive mental health to all through encouragement and friendship. I would watch this movie for the positivity and focus on mental health.

Fanbase Potential

This would not have a large fanbase. While this has many positive qualities, it is not gripping. It teaches many valuable lessons but is not for mainstream audiences. It would be geared to a younger audience and be most effective as a series.

Awards Potential

This could have awards potential for visual effects. The House of the Universe is a magical world and creative license could be taken which could garner awards notice.

Envisioned Budget

MEDIUM BUDGET

What’s New About the Story

The story is original because it focuses on mental health, helping those who are troubled and showing them a better way. Mixed in is the fantasy world of the House of the Universe. This would appeal to younger audiences.

Lead Characters

The lead characters’ natures are very positive. They come from a world where mental health is prioritized and kindness prevails. They are juxtaposed by the emotional students they meet who are struggling in different areas of their lives.

Uniqueness of Story

This is a gem because it focuses on personal growth and mental health. These are important topics that audiences are looking to be represented in the media. The tone is a bit on the nose and would not appeal to many adult audiences but would work well for younger audiences.

Possible Formats

TV Series: Cable, Streaming

Analyst Recommendation

RECOMMEND

Justification

This story is inspiring and necessary for the world today. It enforces positive personal skills, sheds light on behavioral issues and explores how support and love can help anyone. This story would work best as a children’s or preteen series. It takes it a step past current programming to give more depth and focus to issues that children are facing now.
