Lucasfilm Is Busy Brewing A Strange Magic Movie #StrangeMagic
You think that George Lucas has been taking a break? No way, Jose! In fact, the Star Wars creator has been super busy brewing the perfect animated story, ironically named Strange Magic. What famous stars and talent have gotten there hands in the latest movie from Lucasfilm Ltd.? Well, join the fun and adventure that’s coming to the big screen January 2015!
Just by the graphics alone, you can tell that this movie is going to be amazing. CGI at it’s best and Lucasfilm fingerprints all over this movie, Strange Magic should be the perfect marriage of kid and adult entertainment for 2015. George Lucas even wrote the story! I’m in awe of the amazing talent like Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph and more.
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.
I believe in the magic of George Lucas. I cannot wait to see the magical adventure take to the screen!
