Strange Magic is a 2015 animated movie directed by Gary Rydstrom. The movie is produced by Lucasfilm Animation and Touchstone Pictures. The movie is a musical and is set in a magical forest. It is loosely based on Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. The movie features a talented voice cast including Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, and Elijah Kelley.

The movie begins with a voiceover that explains the magical world that the movie is set in. The world is divided into two kingdoms - the Fairy Kingdom and the Dark Forest. The Fairy Kingdom is ruled by the beautiful and kind Marianne while the Dark Forest is ruled by the evil and ruthless Bog King. The two kingdoms are always at war, and the Bog King is determined to keep it that way forever.

The story revolves around a love potion that is created by the Sugar Plum Fairy. The love potion is intended to make the person who drinks it fall in love with the first person they see. Marianne's sister Dawn falls in love with a boy named Roland, who is after her for her kingdom. Marianne is suspicious of Roland's intentions and warns her sister to be careful.

Meanwhile, a love-struck elf named Sunny is on a mission to win the heart of the beautiful fairy, Dawn. However, he is painfully shy and unable to approach her. When he accidentally stumbles upon the love potion, he decides to use it to win her heart. However, he accidentally gives the potion to the Bog King instead of Dawn.

The Bog King is enraged by the love potion, as he has always believed that love is a weakness. However, he soon finds himself falling head over heels in love with Marianne. Marianne is initially horrified by the idea of falling in love with the Bog King but starts to see a different side of him. Together, they must work to prevent the love potion from falling into the wrong hands and causing chaos in the magical world.

The movie features a number of memorable musical numbers, including popular songs from different eras such as "I Can't Help Falling in Love With You" and "Love Is Strange." The movie's animation is vibrant, colorful, and whimsical, perfectly capturing the magical world in which the story is set.

Overall, Strange Magic is a charming and entertaining animated movie that is perfect for families. Its message about the transformative power of love is inspiring and heartwarming. Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, and Elijah Kelley all deliver fantastic performances, bringing their characters to life in a way that is both captivating and endearing. If you're looking for a fun and enchanting movie to watch with your loved ones, Strange Magic is definitely worth checking out.
