    Strange Magic

    In this animated feature from the mind of George Lucas and loosely based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a fairy princess (voiced by Evan Rachel Wood) discovers her fiancé kissing another fairy, and vows she’ll never love again. But the persistent would-be prince (Sam Palladio) conspires to create a love potion so he can inherit the kingdom. Mix-ups occur that lead the main characters into the dark woods populated by fantasy insects, beasts and the Bog King(Alan Cumming) who wants to end love forever.

    ClearPlay In Action!

    ClearPlay cleans up some rude humor involving gross actions, but Strange Magic is mostly family friendly. In a nice twist, it reinforces a message that outer beauty is no indicator of what’s inside, and much of the love is based on affection and not looks. It also boasts are freshingly strong female protagonist. Though the movie’s characters sing popular songs and many oldies, there’s not much here for adults.

    Does Strange Magic pull any rabbits out of its hat?...

    Though well-animated and full of good intentions, Strange Magic lacks that certain something that could’ve made it special. Its story feels familiar, and not just because it’s based on classic source material. Still, stock impish and comic sidekicks might appeal to younger viewers, even if the oldsters roll their eyes.

    Rated PG for some action and scary images; 99 mins; Directed by Gary Rydstrom
