The music the music the music!! The kids and I went to see Strange Magic and we loved it. The music is captivating and kept my kids attention. Miles and Zoe both liked the characters, my son’s favorite was Sunny and my daughter’s favorite character was The Bug King. Strange Magic is all about the power of true love and change. Is it possible for love to change someone, in Strange Magic we watch how love makes the characters crazy, then it makes them hard and guarded and finally can they let love back in and become soft again?
Strange Magic is a movie that will have you singing these great songs from the eighties all day and all night. They are quite catchy songs and it’s a cute movie that both of my kids enjoyed. They give it four thumbs up and after interviewing two of the characters they would give it four thumbs up twice because Elijah and Meredith Ann were so nice to my kids.
With a story by George Lucas, STRANGE MAGIC is directed by Gary Rydstrom (“Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation,” “Lifted”), produced by Mark S. Miller (associate producer “Mars Attacks!”) and executive produced by George Lucas, with a screenplay by David Berenbaum (“Elf”), Irene Mecchi (“Brave,” “The Lion King”) and Rydstrom.
Strange Magic has an extraordinary roster of film as it follows the story of a fairy princess that’s madly in love, television and Broadway stars lend their voices to “Strange Magic,” including The Bog King himself, Alan Cumming (CBS’ “The Good Wife,” Broadway’s “Cabaret”), The Fairy Princess Marianne, Evan Rachel Wood (“The Ides of March”), Kristin Chenoweth (Broadway’s “Wicked”), Maya Rudolph (“Big Hero 6,” “Bridesmaids”), Sam Palladio (ABC’s “Nashville”), newcomer Meredith Anne Bull who plays the adorable constantly in love fairy princess Dawn, Alfred Molina (“Chocolat”), The very handsome triple threat Elijah Kelley plays Sunny (“Hairspray,” “The Butler”), Bob Einstein (HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and Peter Stormare (“Fargo”). Well-known music producer Marius de Vries (“Moulin Rouge”) serves as both the musical director and composer.
I didn’t realize at first that it was going to be a musical but you quickly understand that’s what’s going on as you are watching it. The main character is in love and singing about how happy she is that she is getting married. Until Marianne finds Mr. Right (Rowland) who walks around like Elvis strutting his stuff is cheating on him. Then she decides love is for fools (which is exactly how the Bug King feels). Rowland sets a plan to make a love potion and of course it hits the wrong person and she sees the bug king and well, how does this story end with such a crazy love triangle you have to watch the movie to find out.
