Strange Magic (2015)
Overall it's cool, but too much emphasis on music.
Visuals are stunning, as they should be, anything sub par wouldn't be acceptable from Lucas production. Story is decent, and if you take into account that target audience are kids one might even say it's pretty good, certainly entertaining enough to keep you watching. Characters are interesting and well thought out, they all have their own unique motivations(again this all might seem paper thin for an adult, but for kids it's just enough complexity to jump-start young mind). Dialogue isn't cheesy(English isn't my native language so I might be wrong), at least it's believable. Only thing that's stopping this film from being really good is: There's just too much singing. I know it's supposed to be a musical, but songs/music aren't even that good. It has been proved time and time again that you don't need original songs to make a good musical, some decent arrangement does the trick(Moulin Rouge, Across the universe, Mamma Mia etc). As it is songs just feel like they're there just as time fillers.
