Alongside The Secret of Nimh (1982), Watership Down (1978), and The Plague Dogs (1983) this is easily considered one of the darkest and most violent animated films of the late 20th century these films were rated G and PG in the cases of Watership Down (1978) and The Plague Dogs (1983) additionally all these four animated films were released before the existence of the PG-13 rating.

I dislike the feel of this woods. Creatures that live in a unicorn's forest learn a little magic of their own in time. Mainly concerned with disappearing.

The Last Unicorn, a unforgettable 1982 Animation Fantasy classic that enchanted fans of Fantasy and animation since it first came out. It is about a lonely Unicorn who thinks she is the last of her kind and sets out on a quest to find them throughout the dangerous yet magical world that she has never seen before, along the way she meets a cast of colorful characters including my favorite " Schmendrick The Magician", who is a goofy-but-lovable magician that magically transforms Unicorn into a Beautiful Human maiden to fool the bad guys.
This is indeed a beautiful, fabulous and touching animated movie that is one of my faves. It's both appealing to children and their parents, highly recommended.
