In this animated tale, a tiny village is destroyed by a surging glacier, which serves as the deadly domain for the evil Ice Lord, Nekron. The only survivor is a young warrior, Larn, who vows to avenge this act of destruction. The evil continues, however, as Nekron's palace of ice heads straight towards Fire Keep, the great fortress ruled by the good King Jarol. When Jarol's beautiful daughter, Teegra, is abducted by Nekron's sub-human ape-like creatures, Larn begins a daring search for her. What results is a tense battle between good and evil, surrounded by the mystical elements of the ancient past. Written by

Even though the rotoscope performers get top billing in the opening credits, Ralph Bakshi had some of the voices of the characters dubbed based on what he wanted and the abilities of the cast. For example, Cynthia Leake performed Teegra during the live action shoot. However, after the animation was done, Teegra was voice by Maggie Roswell. See more »
After the attack of the water monster, Teegra stabs the last sub-human with a very pointy stick. As she stabs, we see the stick remains lodged in the chest of the sub-human. In the next shot, as she falls on her back recovering from the attack, the stick is back in her hand. See more »
I first saw this film way back, probably when I was 7 or 8 years old and it impressed me then as it does now. I'm a fan of animation in general be it anime, American animation or otherwise. The beautiful animation of this film holds up well even today in our age of computer animated everything. In fact, every new animated film that comes out uses the same tried and true crappy looking mix of CGI and animation and to be honest, I'm tired of it. I miss those days of hand painted, hand drawn animation. This is a fine example of bygone days where animation got along just fine without the use of bad looking CGI and computer overlayed animation. This is an excellent film and anyone at all interested in fantasy, D&D or just animation in general should most definitely find yourself a copy of this film.
