A couple of weeks ago it was revealed that Lucasfilm has been quietly working on a new animated musical Strange Magic, based upon a story by George Lucas himself, and now we have our first look at the film with Disney debuting a trailer and stills ahead of its release in January.
“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.”
Strange Magic is directed by Gary Rydstrom (Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation) and features a voice cast that includes Alan Cumming (The Good Wife), Evan Rachel Wood (The Wrestler), Kristin Chenoweth (Rio 2), Maya Rudolph (Big Hero 6), Sam Palladio (Nashville), Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2), Elijah Kelley (Hairspray), Bob Einstein (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Peter Stormare (Arrow) and newcomer Meredith Anne Bull.
Strange Magic is set for release on January 23rd.
