Storyline

Rainbow Brite, and her magical horse Starlite, must stop an evil princess and her underlings from taking over the planet Spectra. When they meet Orin, the wise Sprite tries to make the two children get along and work together to stop the evil Princess. Orin tells them that they can only destroy her by combining their own powers against her. Getting in the way of their mission is the sinister Murky Dismal and his bumbling assistant Lurky who, as usual, are lavishing in the new gloom created by the darkening of Spectra, as well as trying to steal Rainbow's magical color belt.

As pure as a Hallmark card.
6 November 2010 | by (Lowell, MA USA) – See all my reviews

Do not operate heavy machinery while watching this movie. No seriously I loved it, especially the colorful characters, the wonderful music and the stunning animation. It pays to have a friend like Rainbow Brite, a girl who has a sunny outlook on life and is positive about everything. She is never sad, even when it rains. I'm a child of the 80's and I loved every movie based on a cartoon series of that decade. I loved The Care Bears Movie, The Littles and The Chipmunks. But Rainbow Brite is the best of them all. It's like Strawberry Shortcake meets The Smurfs.

Good morals surround this film and it's message survives today: Be kind to others, make new friends, love the earth, and above all love yourself. See this movie, you will never forgive yourself if you don't. A word of note though, this movie hasn't been seen on DVD for awhile. It came out for a short time but then it kind of disappeared, I hope it makes a comeback soon.
