George Lucas wrote Strange Magic, an animated fairy tale, due to premier Jan. 23, 2015. The plot was inspired by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
The land is split between two worlds, the magical world of fairies, and the mysterious dark forest of goblins. The worlds stay separate, until a love potion is made from flowers that grow on the borders.
Lucas created the story about finding beauty in strange places. Gary Rydstrom (director of Toy Story short Hawaiian Vacation) is directing Strange Magic. Rydstrom compares the film to Labyrinth, a Jim Henson fantasy movie starring David Bowie. George Lucas was one of the contributing screenwriters on Labyrinth.
Strange Magic is a musical with popular songs from the last six decades. Like Frozen, two of the main characters are sisters.
