Four kids living in the small Italian town of Castelcorvo must solve puzzles and fight evil to rescue other kids in the Disney+ Original Series, “The Knights of Castelcorvo.” The four kids are called by a pair of sister witches and must uncover secrets to help free those who have been taken. In the end, the four knights defeat the evil magical being who has been taking the kids.

This series gives me a similar vibe as “Secrets of Sulphur Springs.” It is a great combination of mystery and adventure that will draw in adults and adolescents alike. It’s a little more grown up than “Secrets of Sulphur Springs,” but that may have to do with it being an Italian series and the Italian culture being different than the American culture. I was enthralled from the beginning of the first episode to the end of the second episode and I hope there is a second season of this show. I’m very interested to see where this series goes.

The dubbing on this series matches up a little better than the dubbing on some other international series available on the American Disney+. There are some spots where you can see the dubbing due to the differences in the original language and the dubbed language, but, for the most part, it lines up enough that it’s not distracting. That being said, I hope the series is available with subtitles for those who prefer them to dubbing.

This is the latest in a string of international series to hit Disney+ in the United States and it’s my favorite so far. “Snowdrop” was good but became difficult to follow because it wasn’t dubbed. “Weekend Family” was a bit odd to me. Granted, that may be the difference in the French culture and the American culture. “Parallels” was really good, but this one is better. I like mystery and I love seeing what foreign countries do with their mystery series.
