The Last Unicorn (1982) IMDb

Categorization

Adventure, fairytale. Funded by Rankin-Bass, animated by Topcraft.

Subject

A unicorn leaves her enchanted forest to find others. Out there in the world, magic appears to be on the wane. The unicorn meets various human scoundrels, and as part of a deceit to find the root of the problem, she is turned into a mortal human by an unreliable magician.

Commentary

Falls into the gruesome musical trap after a while. Some enjoyable symbolism and reasonably human characters, but otherwise dull writing. Japanese outsourcing shows in some character designs. Badly drawn and voiced, with a few exceptions (notably Fortuna).
