When Lucasfilm released STRANGE MAGIC (via Disney/Touchstone) this past January, it didn’t exactly set the box office on fire, which on one hand is surprising given it’s “from the mind of” STAR WARS creator George Lucas, but on the other is to be expected of a movie that seemingly came from out of nowhere. While audiences have not yet discovered the musical fairy tale, that could change on May 19th when Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment brings the film home on DVD and Digital HD. Yes, you read that correctly… as of now, no Blu-ray has been announced.
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.
