Strange Magic is a music filled fairy tale about finding love in the unlikeliest of places. This magical adventure features a host of colourful characters, including a princess who has sworn off love, an obvious villain, a slightly nutty sugar plum fairy, a tenacious elf, a mischievous imp, and a knight who is no prince charming. Bring home the enchanting tale the whole family can enjoy today.’
When Marianne is left heartbroken, she swears off love, her heartbreak turning her into, a strong, somewhat bitter, 100% independent princess. After all, if all you have is yourself, no one can hurt you. Rolland, the Prince that broke her heart, tries to win her back, unsuccessfully and he is not the vain knight who take no for an answer, especially when his long-envisioned king-hood is at stake so he devises his own plan to force Marianne back.
When Dawn (Marianne’s sister) is taken by the Bog King, who is set on the devastation of the ‘fairies’, Marianne has no trouble going into the Dark Forest after her. Soon to be followed by Rolland and his crew.
But Rolland isn’t the only one with an agenda. Sunny has his too and he makes his way into the Dark Forest to collect Primrose Petals, - the key ingredient to a love potion. But he isn’t the only one wanting to play cupid and as the story goes on, love is found in the unlikeliest of places.
Honestly most who know me, know I am not a Disney, love a dove, feel good movie person. I spend most of my movie time indulging in thrillers and horrors, but I can say, I even enjoyed this movie. The main character Marianne, has a ‘bad ass’ vibe about her, some would say defiant, but I have always appreciated free thinking characters who stand beside their beliefs even if it makes them something of an outcast. The awesome movie score, breaks the norm with a little ACDC and a re-worked rockier version of Kelly Clarkson’s Stronger. I can highly recommend it for all the family. It has a little something for everyone and definitely one to add to the collection.
