The Last Unicorn (DVD) Animated
There is real magic in this overlooked, cel-animated fantasy that was originally released in 1982 B.C. (Before Computers). Adapted by Peter Beagle from his own novel, The Last Unicorn is a more mature change of pace for directors Arthur Rankin Jr. and Jules Bass, the creators of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeerand other stop-motion holiday perennials. Mia Farrow puts her heart and soul into the voice of a unicorn, who is stunned to overhear that she may be the last of her kind and ventures from her enchanted forest to discover what became of her brethren. Alan Arkin adds his own magic to the hapless Schmendrick, an aspiring wizard, who accompanies the unicorn and transforms her into human form. Jeff Bridges is the voice of Prince Lir, son to the wretched, aptly named King Haggard, who has corralled all the unicorns ("but one") into the sea for his amusement. This film's G rating is generous; PG might be more appropriate. The ferocious Red Bull who does the King's bidding may upset younger viewers, and the scattered mild profanities may give parents pause. Themes of loss and regret might also be too sophisticated for the preschool set. Jimmy Webb composed the hit-and-miss songs performed by America. The voice cast also includes Angela Lansbury in a villainous role as the keeper of a fraudulent circus of so-called mythical beasts. Robert Klein flits in and out of the film as a jive-talking butterfly. Japanese animators account for the film's anime look, which was not as mainstream in 1982 as it is today.
