A Feature-Length Fable of Friendship
31 October 1999 | by neddunnSee all my reviews

Unico, the Magical Unicorn, is born with incredible powers that make people happy. But that angers some very jealous gods. They order the West Wind to cast the tiny Unicorn into exile- and thus begins Unico's amazing adventures.

Entertainment for the entire family, rich in lessons of love and kindness, beautifully told in high-quality animation. Original score.
