George Lucas’ Next Project: A CGI Fairy Musical?

Huh? According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision blog, Star Wars mastermind George Lucas is producing a computer-animated musical about fairies. Yep. This is an actual thing that is actually happening. In real life.

Kevin Munroe, who directed the 2007 animated Ninja Turtles flick TMNT will helm the as-yet-unnamed project. David Berenbaum (Elf) will write the screenplay.

It’s an odd choice for Lucas, since he’s currently wrapping up far more mature film, Red Tails. In addition to writing the story, Lucas is serving as executive producer on this long-gestating World War II epic about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American fighter pilots.

I’ve gotta give cyber props to my good friend and longtime fairy (faery? faerie?) aficionado Shannon for the tip. I bet she sees this movie three times. At least.
