It’s time for another round of Hocus Focus! We had the pleasure of sharing some Collider magic with Liza Koshy, Kimiko Glenn and Travis Coles of Liza On Demand a little while back and now it’s time for Fantasy Island stars Jimmy O. Yang and Ryan Hansen to have a chat about their new film with a Collider magician.
A new spin on the Gene Levitt television series, Fantasy Island is directed by Jeff Wadlow and features Michael Peña in the iconic Ricardo Montalbán role, Mr. Roarke. He welcomes a group of people to the island to live out their fantasy and for Yan and Hansen’s characters, Brax and JD, it’s to “have it all.” Their wild rave packed with beautiful models may seem like a dream come true, but living the luxurious life comes with some very dangerous consequences.
With Fantasy Island now in theaters nationwide, Yang and Hansen took a little time to swing by the Collider Studio to have a chat about their movie and also to see some magic courtesy of magician Anna DeGuzman. I won’t spoil the incredible tricks featured in the video at the top of this article but I will tell you, I was sitting off camera during the taping and had the same exact reaction to the first trick that Yang did.
If you want to follow more of DeGuzman’s work, click here to check her out on Instagram. And if you’re looking for more Fantasy Island content, we’ve got a conversation with Yang, Hansen and their co-stars Lucy Hale, Portia Doubleday, Austin Stowell and Peña right here.
Here’s the official synopsis for Fantasy Island:
In Blumhouse’s new spin on Fantasy Island, the enigmatic Mr. Roarke makes the secret dreams of his lucky guests come true at a luxurious but remote tropical resort. But when the fantasies turn into nightmares, the guests have to solve the island’s mystery in order to escape with their lives. Directed by Jeff Wadlow, Fantasy Island is written by Jeff Wadlow and Chris Roach and Jillian Jacobs and is produced by Jason Blum and Marc Toberoff.
