Strange Magic is the first animated movie of 2014 and it looks kind of interesting. It is a LucasFilm animated film and reminds me somewhat of Jim Henson’s Dark Crystal (buy that great classic from here) when it came to the look of the creatures from the movie.

Then, I saw this ‘Strange Magic’ creature feature and realized that it looked more like Epic. I can let you take that comment how you will, but for those who might have been holding out hopes for this new animated creature film, check out the feature and the trailer below and decide for yourself if it is worth your time.


Here is the official synopsis:

“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.
