I’m not going to lie, I’m not 100% sure what this movie is about (smile), but the animation is beautiful and creative. I like the witty humor and classic pairing of complete opposites that causes the bouncing of energy between the characters. I can’t wait to see their next trailer release before Strange Magic hits theaters in January.
“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.
