About the Movie: The film is an animation piece with splendid music. It’s a madcap fairy tale musical which is inspired by ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. This film spreads the magic of music with some popular songs from the past six decades. The colorful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps and their tale is told with the help of the songs. The film contains hilarious misadventure glimmered by the battle over a powerful potion. Directed by Gary Rydstorm, this film is a perfect treat for the young and energetic audiences and also for the adult audience.  The fight between the good creatures (elves, fairies) of the kingdom and the bad creatures (goblins) of the dark forest is shown with the amazing visual effects and 3D technology that makes the film worth watching. The film makes the use of animation and 3D technology worth watching as the trailer is terrific.

Editor’s Comments: The Strange Magic is an amazing entertainer which will be a treat to watch for all its audience. This animated epic is about the fanciful forest turned upside down with amazing and world class animation visual effects. The division between the kingdom and the dark forest creates the drama that takes the movie further into the overall adventure. Overall the film contains the entertainment values with some great music to spell bound the audiences. By watching the trailer, the film sounds and seems terrific to me, what about you?
