George Lucas brings you the story of a music-filled fairy tale about finding love in the unlikeliest of places in Strange Magic on DVD, Digital HD/SD and On-Demand. This magical adventure features a host of colorful characters including a princess (voiced by Evan Rachel Wood) who has sworn off love, a dubious villain (voiced by Alan Cumming) and his match maker mom (voice by Maya Rudolf), a slightly nutty Sugar Plum Fairy (voiced by Kristin Chenoweth) and a knight who is no Prince Charming (voiced by Sam Palladio). Bonus features include a Musical Mash Up: Outtakes and more!
Take a peek inside the extras with this musical mash up from STRANGE MAGIC:
“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.
My sons initially balked at seeing STRANGE MAGIC mainly because they saw the fairies on the cover and instantly labeled it a “girl” film. About one minute into the movie, they quickly changed their initial decision and stayed riveted to the film every minute there-after. This is a film for the whole family to enjoy, filled with laughter, merriment, tons of familiar songs and a very endearing message at the heart of the movie. It’s simply a light-hearted, finger-snapping adventure that will whisk you away into a land full of magic, mayhem and the power of friendship, family and love!
