From a riddle-speaking butterfly, a unicorn learns that she is supposedly the last of her kind, all the others having been herded away by the Red Bull. The unicorn sets out to discover the truth behind the butterfly's words. She is eventually joined on her quest by Schmendrick, a second-rate magician, and Molly Grue, a now middle-aged woman who dreamed all her life of seeing a unicorn. Their journey leads them far from home, all the way to the castle of King Haggard... Written by

Did You Know?
In September 2003, Carlton Communications, successor to ITC Entertainment, claimed that they earned over a million pounds in revenue from DVD and cable TV sales of The Last Unicorn
(1982). During this period, Peter S. Beagle
had not received his contractual share of the income, which includes 5% of the net profits from all revenues from the animated film, 5% of the gross revenues from all related merchandising, $20,000 for any and every sequel or remake, and various fees for any possible television series adaptations or spinoffs. When negotiations with Granada over this issue failed to yield any results, a public campaign for support was launched on Peter's behalf by Conlan Press in August 2005. See more
