Storyline

The fairies live in a peaceful place in the forest called FernGully, which has been protected for many years by Magi Lune (Grace Zabriskie), a wise fairy with strong powers. Her granddaughter Crysta (Samantha Mathis) is a charming, beautiful fairy that is very intrigued about the world outside of FernGully. She, along with the other fairies in the forest, does not believe humans exist, and are only in stories, until a crazy bat by the name of Batty Koda (Robin Williams), comes and tells them all of these crazy stories about how he was captured by humans and experimented on. At first, no one believes him except Crysta, and she is determined to find out if humans are real. She goes to a place called Mount Warning, where the evil shadow of destruction, Hexxus (Tim Curry), is known to be trapped, and finds a human named Zak (Jonathan Ward).

Quotes

[first lines]

Enjoyable, but a little bland.
12 September 1999 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

A rather enjoyable non-Disney (I think) animated feature. The animation is a little flat, but still colorful. The character are likable, fortunately not in a forced way. The film is very easy to take, but it could have used more delirious comic scenes with the bat that's voiced by Wiliams and less of those bland songs.
