Strange Magic on DVD now

Strange Magic, an animated film from Lucasfilm Ltd., was released on DVD and Digital May 19, 2015.  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, thanks to 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 (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.

Being a fan of older music I really enjoyed this movies take on some of my favourite songs. I love when my children experience a song for the first time and thing it is ‘new’.The story within Strange Magic shows that true love is out there for all and often in the oddest of places. There are also many important life lessons throughout the movie. Someone may look evil but be good. Another may look good, but be evil.

We really enjoyed Strange Magic and all of the mystical creatures and characters in it. There was no adult language, no violence (mild sword play) and no hidden innuendos. It was just a fun movie for the entire family to enjoy. The characters often broke out into song reminding me of some of my non animated faves like Grease and Dirty Dancing 🙂
