What Happened to the Last Unicorn?


"I'm looking for others like me. Have you seen them, magician?"


There is a forest, known to few, where the last unicorn dwells. By her magic, the woods spread out in eternal spring, mirroring her immortality. The trees twinkle from her brilliance, and even woodland creatures catch a spark of her grace. Though having a friend would be nice, leaving the forest is dangerous. Besides, other unicorns had their own forests to tend to. When she overhears a huntsman proclaim that all the unicorns have gone, she doesn't understand. It's true unicorns can be killed, but surly they don't just vanish? 


When a poetic butterfly's dizzying words peak her curiosity, she sets out on a quest to find her kin. With her only hope in the hands of a bumbling wizard and a hard-nosed lady named Molly Grue, what are her chances of finding the others? How will she escape Mommy Fortuna's traveling carnival? Will all be lost if the red bull finds her? What happens when a unicorn feels regret? You will have to watch this spectacular film to find out! 


Being on the topic of unicorns this week, I couldn't resist watching one of the greatest movies of all time, The Last Unicorn. This is a rare case where the movie is as good, if not better, than the book, because the visual imagery is amazing! It's one of a few films I've seen where the magic really resonates, telling of old, whimsical lore and revealing truths we all know, but are kept hidden in plain sight. This is a story you won't forget, and I recommend it to all those who wish to be enchanted. :)

  2. I haven't seen The Last Unicorn since I was a kid. I don't even remember it, which is sad. I'm sure if I watched it again, it would all come back to me.
