23 November 2014 10:28 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The first trailer for Lucasfilm’s new animated film Strange Magic has just been released and it’s far far away from what one usually expects from George Lucas.

A madcap fairytale inspired by Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, Strange Magic is a musical misadventure where elves, fairies, goblins and imps battle it out to possess a powerful love potion.

A number of cinematic and theatrical actors lend their voices to this quietly slated film including Alan Cumming (Broadway’s Cabaret, CBS’ The Good Wife), Evan Rachel Wood (Charlie Countryman), Maya Rudolph (Big Hero 6, Bridesmaids), and Kristin Chenoweth (Broadway’s Wicked, Rio 2).

Check out the first trailer below!

Strange Magic is set for release in UK theatres on 11 February 2015. »

First Trailer For Strange Magic

23 November 2014 8:54 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A couple of weeks ago, the world at large learned of the existence of Strange Magic, an animated adventure based on an idea by George Lucas that had quietly been developing at his Lucasfilm company under the aegis of director Gary Rydstrom. With the movie arriving in the Us in a couple of months, the trailer has now appeared. Strange Magic is set in a world where the kingdoms of the magical and the mysterious are linked but never meet. Then an interloper crosses the border and all manner of chaos breaks out, mostly to do with a powerful potion that both sides wish control over. Loosely based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the film is powered along by pop songs that apparently help tell the story, even if it all seems a little basic in terms of plot. The cast includes Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, »

'Strange Magic' trailer is full of snarky heroes, dudebro fairies, & musical numbers

21 November 2014 2:08 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Marketed as “from the mind of George Lucas” comes an animated tale of what happens when two worlds collide. The barrier between the realms of Magic and Mystery have fallen, flinging goblins and fairies together…which can only mean war, duh. Played for laughs, “Strange Magic” might be less standard high fantasy trope of good vs. evil, and more a kid-friendly exploration about what happens when you make snap assumptions about a foreign “other.”  Oh, and it’s a musical? Maybe?  [Via Yahoo] Lucasfilm's "Strange Magic"  stars the voices of Evan Rachel Wood, Alan Cumming, Maya Rudolph, and Peter Stormare. It arrives in theaters across the country on January 23, 2015. »

Trailer For Lucasfilm's Strange Magic

21 November 2014 12:53 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Considering George Lucas' name is attached, it is a surprise that Strange Magic was able to sneak under everybody's radar, but sneak it did, with the animated fairy tale hitting the big screen next year. Lucas provides the story, while Lucasfilm Animation Singapore and Industrial Light & Magic (who were the minds behind Rango) deliver some extremely pretty visuals for this magical tale, inspired by William Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', that makes great use of popular songs from the last six decades. Check out the trailer below. Featuring the voices of Evan Rachel Wood, Kristen Chenoweth, Alan Cumming, Maya Rudolph, Peter Stormare, and Alfred Molina, Strange Magic reaches the U.S. on January 23rd, and Ireland and the U.K. on February 11th. »

21 November 2014 12:24 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

George Lucas might have sold off Lucasfilm for a hefty $4 billion, but that doesn’t mean his creative output has ceased. Prior to unloading Lucasfilm onto Disney, the iconic filmmaker had begun work on an animated musical feature loosely based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Touted to be a “madcap fairy tale,” Strange Magic was only very recently revealed to the world. With its release date coming up fast, the first trailer has now dropped, courtesy of Yahoo!

For his first full-length feature, Oscar-winning director Gary Rydstrom has assembled a starry cast to provide vocal talents for his crew of goblins, elves and fairies. Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Alfred Molina, Peter Stormare, Sam Palladio, Meredith Anne Bull and Elijah Kelley all make ‘appearances’ in this first preview.

Taking a glance at this first footage, the Shrek-inspired vibe suggests it’s being aimed at a younger market. »

First Strange Magic Trailer Reveals George Lucas’ New Animated Film; Plus New Images

21 November 2014 9:24 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With the ever-present nature of the internet, it’s rare nowadays that a movie can somewhat blindside you with its existence.  But that’s just what happened recently when Disney announced not only that an animated feature from Lucasfilm called Strange Magic exists, but that it’s coming out in a little over two months.  The film is based on a story by George Lucas, and today the Strange Magic trailer was released, giving us our first look at some footage.  Though the animation is impressive in some respects, the whole thing feels really dated.  There’s a heavy reliance on widely known pop songs, a trend that was all the range during the time of Shrek—over a decade ago.  The fairy tale revolves around a world filled with goblins and elves and is inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream and it might yet drum up some interest »
