Trailer For George Lucas' 'Strange Magic' Lives Up To The Title

The "Star Wars" creator has released the trailer for his new animated movie.

Full disclosure: I'm not entirely sure what is happening in the trailer for "Strange Magic," the new animated musical from Lucasfilm that has a story by the "Star Wars" mastermind, but the animation definitely looks very, very good.

There's a troll crossing a magical borderline. Someone's sister gets kidnaped by an evil-looking guy. There's that vain dude. Also, the songs are modern.

The story is said to be a riff on "A Midsummer Night's Dream," so check out the trailer above - and let us know if you're excited to see what the guy who brought you "Red Tails" (and some other stuff) is up to next.

"Strange Magic" opens in theaters on January 23.
