The Last Unicorn (1982)

Directed by Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass

Voices by Jeff Bridges, Mia Farrow, Alan Arkin, Angela Lansbury, and Christopher Lee

Unfortunately, I could not find the film on any streaming service for free so I did not see it today. But I have to say that I wanted to see it again. I remember that this film played on HBO early in the morning on different days and I use to see it before I had to go to class while at the university. I think it is one weird animated movie but I always enjoyed it.

The movie centers around a unicorn who believes she is the last unicorn and she wants to find out what happened to the rest of her kind. She meets a magician and a woman who helps and protects her. They realize that she is the one that can save the other unicorns trapped by the red bull.

The movie has a certain charm to it although I can’t really say why I enjoyed it so much. The magical tail of this poor unicorn trying to find the rest of her kind and then turned human she struggles with the emotions of a woman and that of being a unicorn. It is a good story. I did not know it was based on a book written in 1968.

To my bigger amazement, the voices are made by very known and good actors and I say that because the movie to me feels like a cult classic rather than a big box office movie. But I was little when the movie was released to remember the movie when it was released.
