Skywalker Ranch is producing a "top-secret" CG musical starring... fairies! What could it be about? A Ferngully reboot? A new Willow? Tinkerbell's teen daughter goes to fairy college, or something wholly original? Check our guesswork.
Kevin Munroe, of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame, is directing the picture, from a screenplay by David Berenbaum, who wrote the comical yet endearing Elf and The Spiderwick Chronicles adaptation.
We don't know if the picture is an original idea from Lucas, but we do know there will be dancing, singing, CG and fairies. But let's speculate anyways.
What if Lucas was inspired by his past work on Willow? A new fairy-centric Willow world? With more Ewok picnics and a cameo from Val Kilmer as an older Madmartigan. Instead of the hyper stylized world of the Prequels and Clone Wars, what about a gritty, dirty fantasy world — oh wait, it's CG... Hmmm, never mind.
Perhaps it's a crew of misfit space fairies reminiscent of Captain EO.
And finally, what about a Spiderwick-style story where fairies live among us?
Yeah, our hopes are firmly set on a new Willow feature.
