Episode 18 is here and it’s infused with UNICORN POWER! We’re reviewing the 1982 animated classic The Last Unicorn. This film was produced by Rankin/Bass for and animated by Topcraft who would later become Studio Ghibli. The film is beautiful to look at and really shows its pedigree, especially in the hand painted backgrounds. There are some really beautiful pastoral scenes in this film.
The Last Unicorn is the story of a unicorn who one day finds out that she may be the last unicorn in the world. She goes on a quest to discover if this is true and if it is, to free the rest of the unicorns. It’s a fairly simple setup but the characters are very well developed and bring a depth to this animated film that isn’t often seen in english produced productions.
