Upon hearing that she may be the very last of her kind on Earth, a Unicorn (Mia Farrow) goes in search of others like her. Her quest won’t be easy, as it leads her straight to the evil King Haggard (Christopher Lee) and his infamous Red Bull! And the journey is made even more complicated when, to protect her from the envious wrath of Haggard, a spell is cast to turn the Unicorn into the Lady Amalthea, a young, beautiful, human woman. But with this new body comes new thoughts and feelings, such as love for Haggard’s son, Prince Lir (Jeff Bridges). Will the Unicorn get lost inside this new body? Will she meet the fate of the other Unicorns? Or will she be able to defeat Haggard and his Red Bull with the aid of her friends, Schmendrick the bumbling magician (Alan Arkin) and Molly Grue (Tammy Grimes)?

Our Thoughts:
This movie is truly a classic animated film for all ages. I was 6 years old when this movie came out and I remember being fascinated with The Last Unicorn. My parents still even have it recorded to VHS from when it appeared on TV years later for a family movie night. This film is rated G and is 93 minutes long. Bear in mind that this film is 33 years old and movie ratings were a lot more relaxed back then so just to warn you - this movie does say the word 'damn' a couple times. I never paid attention to it as a child but it wasn't until I borrowed that ancient VHS of my parents to show my daughter years ago that I heard the word (Your kids will most likely not catch it). I am thrilled that I was able to watch this again with my daughter, nieces and nephews in this newly restored, hi-definition movie.
