Peel back the layers of reality and behold a stunning realm hidden beneath. One of magic and wonder. Of sorcery and enchantment. Of ancient spells, secret doors and remarkable heroes who protect us from evil. Because this is also a world of dark mysticism, malevolent forces and unspeakable horrors. And within the shadows around us, a supernatural war is waged. But the balance is shifting. Darkness is winning. Yet there is hope... Join us as Dr. Stephen Strange embarks on a wondrous journey to the heights of a Tibetan mountain, where he seeks healing at the feet of the mysterious Ancient One. But before his wounds can mend, Strange must first let go of his painful past and awaken a gift granted to very few. The gift of magic. Empowered as the new Sorcerer Supreme, Dr. Strange now tests his limits, rising up against monsters that push at the gates, facing the most terrifying entity humankind has ever known.

If you want a retelling of Doctor Strange's backstory this film covers the bulk of it quite well. The animation is lush and vivid. The writing is so well done that you would hope that this is what the live action Doctor Strange movie would look like. This is a very under-rated animated feature.
Edit: Revised review nine years after first viewing and recent rewatching:
This is the the very under-rated Doctor Strange animated movie from nine years ago. Roughly the same plot as the live action movie but it goes into detail about why Doctor Strange wanted to be a Doctor, left The Ancient One in tact, and does not require Doctor Strange to need a sling Ring to open a portal. Also, like in the comics, Mordo is the real villain of the origin story.
The Ancient One always knew Doctor Strange was destined to be the next Sorcerer Supreme and never turned him away (just tested him heavily) and it's indicated that Doctor Strange had a predispostion for Magick he just never knew about. He is able to see through a Glamour spell he was not supposed to, before even damaging his hands.
If you like the live action Doctor Strange I urge you to check out this sorely under-rated animated film. (Note: do not confuse this with the Doctor Strange knock off movie of the early 90s or the 1970s Doctor strange live action movie).
Also if you ever played Avengers Alliance (The Facebook game) you will find they stole / sampled some of their music from this movie.
The animation is gorgeous and surpasses some Disney cell animation. Also some flashbacks give Strange more depth. It's as beautiful as an animated Disney feature and is sorely underated.
Seriously, this is a beautiful movie. Don’t consider it as competition for the movie but a companion piece for it. If you liked Doctor Strange I urge you to watch this slightly more comic book accurate version that has fallen into semi-obscurity. It’s surprisingly beautiful.
I highly recommend this film for any Marvel fan or anyone just starting to get into the supernatural aspects of the Marvel universe.
This is a good character study, and the filmmakers do what they can to put the viewer right there with the good doctor as he reacts to trauma, makes desperate attempts to heal, faces fears, faces past mistakes, overcomes outer and inner obstacles, learns magic, learns to “give back,” and takes up the mystical mantle. There’s more emphasis on drama than action, which is not a bad thing.
A big shout-out to the mostly-Japanese animation team, who give this film an “anime” look and feel—also not a bad thing. There are lots of good shots, such as sorcerers bounding over the roofs of cars, tears dripping on an OR floor, the doctor’s reflection in a pair of spectacles, and the press of a hand against a nexus of magic. The standard incantations from the comics are missing, but there are plenty of eloquent silences and gestures that get the job done.
I only give the film four stars, as I found some of the medical and healthcare scenarios a little puzzling. I’m not sure how well some of them would stand up to scrutiny, although a more expert opinion than mine would be a better judge. But once life veers the good doctor off the medical path and onto the magical path (however severely), the sky’s the limit.
Should Marvel decide to return to the animated film series, it would be grand to have a sequel where he jumps into fantastical alternate universes, as in the comics. And is surprised by Clea.
