Set to captivate audiences of all ages, 'Strange Magic' is the enchanting animated comedy from George Lucas, who may have taken a step back from the big budget adventure blockbusters of 'Indiana Jones' and 'Star Wars', but certainly still has a few tricks up his sleeve.

With a hilarious cast featuring Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming, 'Strange Magic' sees a fairytale land divided into the magical and the mysterious, with the twain never meeting until one fateful day. Suddenly, there seems to be an impending all out war, with both cultures disturbed by the sight of each other and unwilling to accept each other's differences (doesn't sound like such a fantasy land after all, right?). 

Watch the trailer for 'Strange Magic' here:

The Mysterious land, led by the nefarious Bog King, are determined to get their hands on a dangerous magical potion from the other world and decide to kidnap a fairy named Dawn in order to get it, but it turns out that's a bad move when her feisty sister Marianne sets out to rescue her - and she's not scared of anything.

It's loosely based on William Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night Dream', due to its focus on cross-cultural differences and hostile misunderstandings. The theme is just as important now as it always has been, especially with the world getting more and more intent on making sure their own creeds are recognised and respected by all, even if it means alienating themselves further.
