First trailer for animated Lucasfilm, Strange Magic

Strange Magic Official US Trailer

Now here’s something that came out of absolutely nowhere. This must’ve been buried under all of that Star Wars after Disney acquired Lucasfilm, but apparently, Strange Magic is an animated film inspired by a story from George Lucas that’s releasing two months from now. But after looking at the first trailer for the film, I completely understand why it’s been hidden until now. 

An animated take on A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream inspired by pop songs, this is the most generic thing I’ve ever seen. But it also looks very well animated? Such a waste. 

Strange Magic releases January 23rd oddly enough. Did anyone know about this?
