This is an animated movie based on the book by Peter Dickinson. In this movie the realm of magic is being threatened by the realm of logic, so Carolinus, the green wizard decides to shield it for all time. Ommedon, the evil red wizard, stands in his way. Carolinus then calls for a quest that is to be led by a man named Peter Dickinson, who is the first man of both the realms of science and magic. It is Peter's job to defeat Ommedon.Written by
A broadcast of the film in Israel in the early 90's was disrupted and discontinued. It was later announced that was due to a complaint received by the IBA (the Israeli Broadcasting Authority - its government national broadcaster) that some of the characters resemble antisemitic imagery. There hasn't been a broadcast on the Israeli national broadcast since. See more »
This movie was great. I watched it over and over and over again as a kid, and it basically introduced me to fantasy. The voices are so talented, including the late John Ritter and James Earl Jones. And the story is so creative! A great movie for children and adults alike.
