Alfie Graham: An introverted 28 year old boy, he loves to read books, but one day he and Libby were reading an old and mysterious book that transport them to the land of tales. During this adventure he has to overcome his fears and try to become the hero of this magical world.
Libby Wyatt: Alfie's optimistic 27 year old best friend. She likes reading, but not as much as Alfie does, Libby about parties and trying to have a good time, but once she arrives into the magical world, she now has to prove that she is not just a happy girl looking for fun, she can also be a hero. Libby becomes Alfie's love interest at the end.
King Terricus: The 61 year old king of the land of tales. He is very caring about the good for this world. Played by a famous actor.
Lavina: A 48 year old witch, and main antagonist of the film. She wants to lead her army to conquer the land of tales and enslave all the people living in it.
Amil the brave: A dwarf who joins the adventure along with Alfie and Libby, since he always wanted to go in a battle against Lavina's army. He is mainly the comic relief.
Hibus the wizard: The right hand of King Terricus, he is a powerful wizard that is capable to see the future, and he saw a premonition that Lavina will rule the land of tales unless Alfie and Libby came to stop her. He is like the Gandalf of the group.
