Get ready, folks -- George Lucas is bringing us a musical, and no, it's not Star Wars: The Musical. The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision Blog reports that Lucas and Skywalker Ranch are in preproduction on an "untitled, top-secret CGI-animated film." The only plot details that have been released: fairies are featured. David Berenbaum (Elf, The Spiderwick Chronicles) penned the secret screenplay, and Kevin Munroe (TMNT) will direct. There's no word as to whether Lucas came up with the story, or if this is an original idea by Berenbaum.

So, some sort of musical CGI world that includes fairies. That's really not saying too much since the film will be animated -- but considering the creative backgrounds of those involved, this probably won't be a straight, modern tale of some regular kids who meet fairies. I imagine it will be heavily stylized fictional world full of all those fancy cinematic elements available to those over at the Skywalker Ranch.

For the most part, all that Lucas does these days is Star Wars projects, but remember -- this project isn't his only vacation from that. He's also got Red Tails on the way -- the WW2 adventure movie about the Tuskegee Airmen.

Excited for an animated fairie musical? Wishing it was Star Wars? Wishing Lucas wasn't entering musical land? Weigh in below!
