‘Strange Magic’ Teaser Poster Released

'Strange Magic'Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm have released the first teaser poster for Strange Magic (January 23, 2015) which you can see here.

Strange Magic, a new animated film from Lucasfilm Ltd., is a madcap fairy tale musical inspired by ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’ Popular songs from the past six decades help tell the tale of a colorful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and their hilarious misadventures sparked by the battle over a powerful potion. Lucasfilm Animation Singapore and Industrial Light & Magic bring to life the fanciful forest turned upside down with world-class animation and visual effects. Directed by Gary Rydstrom from a story by George Lucas, Strange Magic will be released by Touchstone Pictures on January 23, 2015.

‘Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens’ Trademarks Reveal New Character, Captain Phasma

Star Wars: The Force AwakensLucasfilm and Walt Disney Studios recently announced the names for several of the characters featured in the trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015). On December 11, Lucasfilm went ahead and registered several related applications for several of these characters, including: BB-8, the ball-droid; Kylo Ren, the sith; and Poe Dameron, the X-Wing Fighter pilot.

Among the registrations, however, were many for a ‘Captain Phasma,’ for which we were unable to find any previous documentation outside of an extensive fan-fiction titled Tarkin’s Fist and random usernames.

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.

‘Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens’ Title Treatment in Ultra High Resolution

Star Wars: The Force AwakensIn addition to news on Toy Story 4 and the mysterious Strange Magic, Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm also caused a near meltdown today when they casually announced that Star Wars: The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015) had completed principal photography (and oh! it has a subtitle too, we guess).

To commemorate the neo-historic event, a title treatment for the film was also revealed. Through a few mindtricks of our own, we managed to get our hands on an ultra high res version of the title treatment (20+ megapixels in fact) and are presenting it here to you in its full glory. Fortunately most of it is space and as it turns out, space compresses pretty well, so we didn’t have to reduce it to get it here.
