There’s now a trailer for the just-announced Lucasfilm animated feature Strange Magic, due in theaters Jan. 23.
The feature is described as a madcap fairy-tale musical inspired by Shakespeare’s 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.
Take a look:
The film is directed by Gary Rydstrom (Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation, Lifted) from a story by George Lucas, and features animation by Lucasfilm Animation Singapore and Industrial Light & Magic.
The voice cast includes Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Sam Palladio, Meredith Anne Bull, Alfred Molina, Elijah Kelley, Bob Einstein and Peter Stormare.
