Strange Magic

The trailer for the new Lucasfilm Strange Magic is in line. It looks a lot like Epic. Hopefully it has a decent story. Unfortunately it says it is from the mind of George Luca .

Interesting. The visuals look great, at least. Although the leaden use of pop music isn't doing it any favors. Yeesh.

Totally cringe-worthy - just that alone will be enough for parents to not even go near this and steer their kids away from it...

Yeah, at first I hoped it was just overlay for the trailer, but nope, the characters are clearly singing. Repeatedly. :-X

So I guess this is another cg movie made by ILM just like Rango.

Well, Disney did kind of bury that one like they did with John Carter. This is pretty typical when there is a change of management.

I still do want to see it eventually for the visuals. Maybe switching the sound off is the way to go.

The commercials looked top-notch on TV.  Way more detail than what you normally see for CG toons.

How does it compare with "Howard the Duck"?
