Is Lucasfilm’s ‘Winter Tale’ Another ‘Strange Magic’ Surprise?

If announcing Strange Magic just a couple of months before its theatrical release is any indication, Lucasfilm has some pretty interesting cards up its sleeve that it seems ready to produce at a moment’s notice — providing it’s when it’s least expected.

Recently, a new title appeared on Amazon.com for pre-order, titled Winter Tales Junior Novelization with the only clue being that it’s a tie-in to a feature film — a feature film that appears to have the same internet presence as Strange Magic did prior to its unveiling. Other than that, all that’s given is it’s 128 pages and slated for a release of March 3, 2015 March 1, 2016.
