Touchstone Pictures to Release New LucasFilm Movie, Strange Magic


Tunnel vision is easy when it comes to LucasFilm – Star Wars is so popular that people tend to forget that the studio has other properties and is interested in launching other properties. Case in point is a new animated film that will be released by Touchstone Pictures on January 23, 2015, titled “Strange Magic.” The film is described as LucasFilm’s take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, with LucasFilm Animation Singarpore and Industrial Light & Magic taking care of CGI animation and visual effects.

Strange Magic will also feature popular songs from the past six decades as it tells the tale of a colorful cast of goblins, fairies, elves, imps, and their hilarious misadventures over a hotly contested magical potion. The story was written by George Lucas and directorial duties is handled by Gary Rydstrom.
