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 with world-class animation and visual effects.

Critics Consensus: Like most modern animated movies, Strange Magic is lovely to look at; unfortunately, there isn't much going on beneath the surface.

Uneven animated musical is stranger than it is magical.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Strange Magic is an animated musical loosely based on Shakepseare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Like a Baz Luhrmann film, the movie -- which George Lucas co-wrote and executive produced -- uses a mix of classic and contemporary pop and rock songs to further the plot. The fairy-themed romance/adventure features more kissing than the typical animated tale (including one male fairy kissing someone other than his bride-to-be on their wedding day), and the violence includes hand-to-hand combat, dueling, sword play, and a kidnapping/hostage situation. Themes center on the idea that love should be based on more than looks, and you shouldn't assume anything based on someone's size or beauty.
