Lucasfilm’s STRANGE MAGIC To Be Released Jan 23, 2015 #StrangeMagic

Have you gone to the movie theaters lately and wondered what the next blockbuster movie could be? Well, here’s a new movie to look forward to — STRANGE MAGIC! And it looks like it’ll surely make waves when it’s released by Touchstone Pictures on January 23, 2015!

Strange Magic

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.

With a story by George Lucas, STRANGE MAGIC is directed by Gary Rydstrom (“Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation,” “Lifted”), produced by Mark S. Miller (associate producer “Mars Attacks!”) and executive produced by George Lucas, with a screenplay by David Berenbaum (“Elf”), Irene Mecchi (“Brave,” “The Lion King”) and Rydstrom. An extraordinary roster of film, television and Broadway stars lend their voices to “Strange Magic,” including Alan Cumming (CBS’ “The Good Wife,” Broadway’s “Cabaret”), Evan Rachel Wood (“The Ides of March”), Kristin Chenoweth (Broadway’s “Wicked”), Maya Rudolph (“Big Hero 6,” “Bridesmaids”), Sam Palladio (ABC’s “Nashville”), newcomer Meredith Anne Bull, Alfred Molina (“Chocolat”), Elijah Kelley (“Hairspray,” “The Butler”), Bob Einstein (HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and Peter Stormare (“Fargo”). Well-known music producer Marius de Vries (“Moulin Rouge”) serves as both the musical director and composer.


“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” + popular songs + comedy = SURE HIT! Can’t wait to see this movie in theaters!

  1. Thanks so much for the Terrific Review on the LucasFilm’s Strange Magic! It sure looks different! I think the kids would like it though! They like “musicals” and elf’s and things of that sort! This movie looks and sounds like it’s right up their alley! George Lucas is a big name in movies and you know with him involved, it will be a great movie! Thanks so much for the information on the movie itself and everyone involved in the making of the movie! I really do appreciate it! I guess we’re going to have to wait until January 23rd and see for ourselves! Thanks again, Michele 🙂
