George Lucas – Away with the fairies?

Lucasfilm are set to make an animated musical about fairies. That’s a very strange sentence, but yes it would appear that the home of Star Wars is gearing up to do just that.

Old George himself is attached as an executive producer on what is sure to be a much discussed veer from the norm at the Skywalker Ranch. The project will be directed by TMNT helmer Kevin Munroe , who is no stranger to the animated world and recently completed production on his first live-action feature, an adaptation of the “Dead of Night” comic starring Brandon Routh and Taye Diggs.

Elf screenwriter David Berenbaum is on scripting duties, but little other than the involvement of fairies is known about the plot.

It’s just all rather bizarre.
