“Strange Magic” trailer a wild fairy tale


The trailer for “Strange Magic” has been released. With a story by George Lucas and animation from Lucasfilm in Singapore, it delivers a wild fairytale ride ands songs to boot.

“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.

  1. Oh, God…. This just looks so painfully bad.
    Like, it belongs in 2003 with the other Shrek ripoffs, only its trying to ride the coattails of Frozen and The Hunger Games with the ‘sisters’ concept.
    Ew. What did I just watch? I think I spotted Shrek, the Prince Charming guy from Shrek 2, Galinda, and the extremely average ‘I’m not your average girl’ girl. Maybe this movie might make a nice drinking game.

  2. This trailer is a perfect example of ‘how not to make a trailer’. The film looks a mess. A cross between EPIC and every other forest based movie from Fern Gully to Avatar. No wonder Disney have been sitting on this. Normally with a movie like this we would have had a trailer about 9 months before release, not two.
