Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Strange Magic is an animated musical loosely based on Shakepseare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Like a Baz Luhrmann film, the movie -- which George Lucas co-wrote and executive produced -- uses a mix of classic and contemporary pop and rock songs to further the plot. The fairy-themed romance/adventure features more kissing than the typical animated tale (including one male fairy kissing someone other than his bride-to-be on their wedding day), and the violence includes hand-to-hand combat, dueling, sword play, and a kidnapping/hostage situation. Themes center on the idea that love should be based on more than looks, and you shouldn't assume anything based on someone's size or beauty.

Sexual Content


Mostly grabbing, pushing, and shoving, along with a kidnapping/hostage taking. The Bog King and his cronies battle the fairy army, occasionally with swords. The fairy army brings down the Bog King's kingdom. The Sugar Plum fairy is imprisoned for most of the movie.


"Son of a ..." (the character doesn't complete the exclamation).

Social Behavior

Love shouldn't be based just on looks, but on personal connection, friendship, and mutual attraction. The story also encourages people not to assume anything based on someone's size or beauty.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A love potion leaves those under the influence believing they're in love with the person they lay their eyes on after being exposed to it.
