First I had boys and the very thought of anything George Lucas made them shriek–like girls—then I had girls and we became an enchanted home of fairies. Now LucasFilms is taking my boys’ hero and mixing it up with my girls’ magic with a new animated movie, Strange Magic.
We’re talking fairies.
Don’t let the fact that it’s based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream sway you, Strange Magic is going to be fun. There are pixies singing, creatures and probably a little magic.
Voice cast includes Evan Rachel Wood, Alfred Molina and Maya Rudolph.
“Strange Magic,” a new animated film from Lucasfilm Ltd., is a madcap fairy tale musical inspired by “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Popular songs from the past six decades help tell the tale of a colorful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and their hilarious misadventures sparked by the battle over a powerful potion. Lucasfilm Animation Singapore and Industrial Light & Magic bring to life the fanciful forest turned upside down with world-class animation and visual effects. Directed by Gary Rydstrom (“Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation,” “Lifted”) from a story by George Lucas, “Strange Magic” will be released by Touchstone Pictures on Jan. 23, 2015.
