Kamen Rider Wizard in Magic Land (劇場版 仮面ライダーウィザード in Magic Land Gekijō-ban Kamen Raidā Wizādo In Majikku Rando?) is a Summer movie for Kamen Rider Wizard. It was released in theaters in August 3, 2013, double-billed with the film for Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger: Gaburincho of Music.
The catchphrases for the movie are "The golden magician Kamen Rider Sorcerer ascends" (金色の魔法使い・仮面ライダーソーサラー降臨 Kin'iro no Mahōtsukai Kamen Raidā Sōsarā Kōrin?) and "A world ruled by magic - The desperate struggle over the dangerous 'last magic' explodes!!" (魔法に支配された世界－絶体絶命の危機に『最後の魔法』が炸裂する!! Mahō ni Shihai-sareta Sekai - Zettaizetsumei no Kiki ni "Saigo no Mahō" ga Sakuretsu-suru?).
A rainbow-colored tornado takes Haruto and Koyomi to an alternate reality called "Magic Land". There, its residents never developed science. Instead they put extensive research on magic. As a result, anyone has an ability to use magic, and some of them can even transform into a Kamen Rider Mage. When Haruto arrives, he meets a young orphan called Shiina. As Haruto explores Magic Land, he finds the Emerald Palace and meets Emperor Maya. He also meets Prime Minister Orma, who is known as Kamen Rider Sorcerer, who does not appear what he may seem to be...
The film begins where a mysterious Golden Magician appeared at the rooftop along with an abducted Koyomi while trying to perform a ritual. Haruto rushed to the rooftop and transforms into Wizard as the fearsome battle between the Magicians begins. The Gold Magician easily overpowers Wizard as he use the Create Ring, causing a rainbow tornado to appear and brought the two of them away.
Haruto and Koyomi found themselves at the same rooftop again but discovers that they in a different world instead. A lot of citizens display their ability to perform magic tricks with their belt as they also use it for their daily life. Shunpei appears as he rescues a kid via Giant Ring and Haruto and Koyomi greets him but Shunpei claims not to know them or never meet them before.
Finally, Haruto and Koyomi reveal that they are from different dimensions with Shunpei becoming fast friends due to his childhood desires to meet otherworldly humans. The trio goes to the alternate version of Donut Shop Hungry where Haruto realized that the their currency is mana and that Yens and other coin/money notes didn’t exist as it will be paid via a Magic Scanner (a Hand Author-esque cash register). As Haruto about to eat his donut, suddenly, an army of Ghouls lead by a Phantom named Khepri appears and attacked the citizens in order to bring them into despair. Soon, Rinko appears and transforms into Kamen Rider Mage followed by Shunpei, Donut Shop Hungry Manager and Worker, and two other citizens to fight. The Donut Shop Hungry Staffs finish the Ghouls by binding them with Donut Ring and hit them with a giant hammer in a similar manner to Daruma Otoshi. All Mages bind Kherpi with Chain Ring, giving Rinko an opening to finish him with Kick Strike. After the battle, Haruto and Koyomi introduce themselves as other dimension humans only for Rinko to handcuffed them as she thinks something is strange. She brings them to Emperor Maya whom Haruto asks him whether he is powerful or not so much that he can even recreate the world. The emperor (silhouetted under a curtain) attacks him with a lightning spell but later stops when taking an interest to Koyomi whose not a mage. Outside the castle, Haruto and Koyomi reveal that they’re looking for the Golden Magician whom brought them here in the first place.
However, instead they were brought to the alternate Kosuke Nitoh/Kamen Rider Beast whom coincidentally also uses the title Golden Magician. As Haruto and Koyomi about to leave, Kosuke stops them, taking an interest at the duo for being otherworldly peoples. Rinko introduces Kosuke as a professor whom refuse to use regular magic that possessed by citizens but instead magics he invented by his own. His Beast Driver also his own handmade as he refer it to an old book and that it never needs the user to consume Phantom manas to survive.
While taking a walk, they stumble across a Magic Ring Shop (the world’s counterpart of Okagedomo Antique Shop). When a customer wants to know the function of the Flexible Magic Ring, Wajima appears, transforms into Mage and demonstrate the power much to the customers’ disgust as they walk away from the shop save Koyomi and Haruto. Wajima introduce them to his worker, Shiina whom he also gave a shelter after his parents passed away. Temporarily, Wajima offers the duo a shelter too as Haruto reveals how did he and Koyomi get into their world to Shiina only for making him run away from the shop. Wajima reveals that Shiina’s mother and almost everyone were taken away by a giant rainbow tornado with the victims are nowhere to be found. He also had met Emperor Maya and requested him to brought the victims back which he agrees and will try his best.
While Haruto and Koyomi are trying to find Shiina, the Golden Magician appears and uses his Tornado Ring to cast away a group of female street dancers into a rainbow Tornado. He walks away, unknowingly watched by Shiina whom suspected him to be the culprit. Koyomi meets a guy, whom reveals to be the emperor as he desires to talk to her for a while. While Shiina chases the Golden Magician, this eventually leads him to a group of Phantom, which revealed to be the alternate counterparts of Phantom Generals. Shiina transforms and begins to fight. When Haruto was chasing for Shiina, he encounters Kosuke, who tries to fishing for mayonnaise, much to Haruto’s shock. Haruto asks whether he sees Shiina or not but later interrupted when they realize that Shiina is under attack. As they arrive, Shiina is already under despair with the duo transforms and easily kill the Phantoms. They dive into Shiina’s Underworld and finally found his inner Phantom, Ouroboros. As the inner Phantom get tied, Wizard and Beast use this chance to perform Kick Strike, with both of their Phantoms transform into their Strike Phase and strike Ouroboros.
Shiina awakes, revealing he saw the Golden Magician too retreated to Maya’s castle, believing Maya is the culprit. Haruto calms the boy and prepares to investigate the castle again. As he manage to sneak into the castle with Kosuke, they then enter a chamber that shown a machine. Kosuke then reveal to Haruto that the emperor is using a forbidden machine that has the citizens mana, which made Haruto thinking about the Magic Scanners in the city (also knowing where the missing people were taken to). Among the skeletons which stacked at the machine, he saw one of it possessing Shiina's Flower Ring, hinting the bearer to be the corpse of Shiina's mother. As they hear footsteps, they hide as the emperor was having a meeting with the Prime Minister about the machine. After the meeting, the emperor then reveal the purpose of using the machine by draining the citizens' magic. Kosuke accidentally got their cover blown as they escape from the emperor. While running, Kosuke tell Haruto that the emperor would die alone as it is impossible to gather all the mana into a machine. Sorcerer appears and attacks them as they transform, Beast let Wizard escape to tell the citizens of the emperor's plan as he continues to fight Sorcerer alone. Sorcerer overpowers Beast as he uses the Vanish Strike Ring to finish off Beast. Back in the shop, Shiina tries to use magic but he notice that he can't use it as Koyomi reveals to him that Haruto enters his Underworld in order to save him from despair, however Shiina doesn't believe what she said. Haruto tries telling his friends about the emperor's plan as no one believed him as the emperor made an announcement of capturing Haruto and telling the citizens a lie about Haruto's plan.
After the announcement, guards appears to capture Haruto as he rides his Machine Winger to escape from the guards. While being chase by the Mages, Haruto transform and outsmart them. Wizard then shoots the Magic Scanners until the Captain of the guards stops him. The captain transform and fight Wizard as he still trying to tell them the truth. The citizens started to hate Wizard after hearing what the emperor said as they throw stuff at him, until Koyomi stops them. She then defends Haruto along with his friends as Koyomi tells him that the emperor is suffering alone. Haruto decides to ride to the castle as Rinko and Shunpei transform to fight the guards. Overpowered by the guards, Kosuke arrive and reveal to the captain that he survive Sorcerer's attack as he transform and overpowers the guards. As Haruto arrive to the chamber, he was too late to stop Maya from activating the machine as the citizens suffers from losing mana (less Koyomi and Shiina). Maya then reveal to Haruto that he is not magician as no one would accept him. Sorcerer enters the chamber as he reveal himself to be the Drake Phantom and telling Maya the true purpose of the machine: getting all the citizens falling into despair. Maya was shocked after hearing that as Haruto save himself from despair. He then tell Maya that he will destroy Magic Land as Haruto remove the Common Ring from the emperor and shatters it. Both magician transform and fought each other, but Sorcerer overpowers Wizard. Before Sorcerer could finish off Wizard, he uses the Flower Ring to distract the golden magician before assuming into Infinity Style. As they are about to finish each other, Sorcerer uses to Final Strike Ring as Wizard uses Finish Strike Ring to perform their finisher. As their kick collide, Wizard ultimately defeated Sorcerer as Magic Land started to vanish. Before return to his world, Wizard tell Maya that they will meet again in their world and Wizard grasp onto Koyomi's hand. As they woke up, Haruto was checking if their friends had the WizarDriver belt, which they don't assuming that they had return to their world. While Haruto and Koyomi went to a park, they witnessed a real-life Maya with his family and Shiina with his mother.

- The Wizard of Oz: The film's story seems to have some small references to the story. Haruto is transported to Magic Land via a whirlwind and the Emerald Castle in the land is similar to the Emerald City in the Land of Oz.
- Alice in Wonderland: Both films' name are hinting the main characters in another world (Haruto in Magic Land and Alice in Wonderland) and both of them had seen weird objects (etc: Alice plays croquet with a flamingo and Haruto witnessing mayonnaise acting like fishes).
- Harry Potter: When Wizard and Beast have to guess out the magic door's question is similar to the talking pictures in Harry Potter movies where they asked the person for passwords.
- This is the first Kamen Rider summer movie since two of its predecessors to do the following:
- The first since Kamen Rider Kiva: King of the Castle in the Demon World to not feature a cameo appearance from the current Rider's successor.
- The first since Kamen Rider W Forever: A to Z/The Gaia Memories of Fate to introduce a movie-exclusive Kamen Rider, namely Sorcerer.
- This movie marks Haruto's second time falling into despair. The first time was in the Sabbath.
- Koyomi is the only main character not to have transformed into a Kamen Rider, which she would later do when she becomes the White Wizard in Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Gaim & Wizard: The Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle.
- Coincidentally, this movie was released on the same day as Shunya Shiraishi's 23rd birthday.
- It is never explained how Haruto was able to obtain the Finish Strike Ring.
- It is also never explained exactly how Sorcerer kidnapped Koyomi at the beginning of the film.
- The alternate versions of Phoenix, Medusa and Gremlin are seen weaker than their original counterpart. This is proven when Phoenix didn't possess immortallity, Medusa cannot create bombs from her glare and all three of them easily defeated by Wizard and Beast.
- This movie is actually foreshadowing some events in the series:
- The identity of Orma as both a magician and Phantom, also foreshadowing Fueki's identity as the White Wizard and Wiseman.
- The events when the Magic Land's citizen were falling to despair en mass, also foreshadowing the second Sabbath in the series which envelopes all of Tokyo.
- When a scene where a group of female youngsters dance while playing the song, this foreshadows the Beat Riders dancing teams in the next Kamen Rider Series, Kamen Rider Gaim.
- The female youngsters were played by the Kamen Rider Girls who appeared in Kamen Rider Gaim as Team Pop Up.
- Wizard's battle against Sorcerer was featured in Kamen Rider: Battride War II.
