First Trailer for George Lucas Animation ‘Strange Magic’ Released
Watch the trailer for Strange Magic, an upcoming 3D computer animation feature by George Lucas, loosely based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The trailer tells the story of two worlds that have lived divided: the magical and the mysterious. When a creature crosses the line, it sets off cries of war from both sides. Enter a potion which destroys order, one sister fighting to save another, and lots of romance mix-ups as creatures begin to fall in love with one another.
The short synopsis for the film reads:
“A fairy tale of goblins, fairies and imps meeting for the first time and the consequent confusions and conflicts the culture clash causes.”
Clearly the plot is a far cry from A Midsummer Night’s Dream but it’s clear that Lucas used the love potion and the fairies as an inspiration.
