The Last Unicorn (1982)
Yes, The Last Unicorn is a children’s movie. Yes, it’s an animated children’s movie. But don’t lump this haunting and beautiful tale in with Pixar’s or Disney’s traditional fare. For starters, the gorgeously unique animation style might be familiar to some viewers, as the core members of its animation team would go on to form Studio Ghibli. The sweet, sad tale is brought to life by a stellar voice cast that includes Christopher Lee, Angela Lansbury, Jeff Bridges and Mia Farrow. And don’t forget the enchanting score, performed by ’70s Mellow Gold hitmakers America. Watch this with your children, or watch it alone—either way, you won’t regret it.
