Strange Magic


George Lucas may not have the rights to Star Wars anymore, but he has been busy working on the fantasy musical Strange Magic. The movie, which was first talked about in 2010, will be released by Touchstone Pictures on January 23, 2015.

The official Strange Magic synopsis:

“Strange Magic 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, which created the CGI animation for 2011’s Academy Award®-winning film Rango, bring to life the fanciful forest turned upside down with world-class animation and visual effects.”

George Lucas was the executive producer and wrote the story. The film is helmed by Gary Rystrom. The voice cast includes Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Sam Palladio, Meredith Anne Bull, Alfred Molina, Elijah Kelley, Bob Einstein and Peter Stormare.

Strange Magic will be in theaters on January 23, 2015.
