I have this distant memory of a film I watched when I was a teenager and I would appreciate it if you could help me identify it.

So I think it's Australian, it's probably a 90's movie, and it starts with a boy around 15-16 years old who is being awakened by his mum to go to school.

The magic boy somehow makes it to 'human' world and he ends up at the basketball court of a school

The teenager accidentally stumbles upon this 'golden boy' who was able to do magic. - since he was from a castle/palace on top of some rock mountain up in the clouds... I specifically remember the 'golden teenage boy' was quite brunette and was showing off to to the other teenager his magic - e.g throwing the ball in the basket

Not really sure what he was doing in the normal world...I think he had to rescue their palace....their magic powers were powered by some flame and it was getting weaker and weaker. An old lady who lived at the palace found a loop-hole and she was trying to take down the parents of the golden boy who were rulers of the palace.

I remember the magic boy could do magic by saying 'khoo'. His face was also painted in gold. I also remember him waking up at the palace eating colored cereal.

Then I remember the teenage boy who would not wake up to go to school would become a baby in a pram and the golden boy together with the teenager boy would try to go back to the palace and had to pass through a forest of green people and then everyone would say 'khoo, khoo, khoo' so as the powers were powerful enough to lift them off and take them back to the palace.

Does this ring any bell to anyone?

I'm not entirely sure that it's an Australian movie but I think the accents were. Alternatives might be New Zealand.

The other thing that just came to mind was the fact that the flame, that maintained their magic powers, was getting stronger and stronger as they continuously said the magic word 'khoo' all together.

Do you remember how you saw this? Cable, in a theatre, etc? –  DForck42 Mar 21 '13 at 20:24

were you in australia when you watched it? do you know what channel you saw it on? –  DForck42 Mar 22 '13 at 17:54
no I wasn't in Australia :(. I was in Cyprus. –  kkudi Mar 22 '13 at 20:57
There are quite a few bits and pieces here. Just because we have no idea what movie it is, doesn't justify labeling it as "not containing sufficient detail to be answerable". I vote "reopen", in case someone does recognize it or the OP finds out what it is and decides to write it as an answer. –  Vedran Šego Nov 14 '13 at 0:08
