Only one of the mythological creatures escapes the evil King Haggard's (voice by Christopher Lee) plan to eliminate all unicorns from the land in Rankin-Bass's (Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer) sophisticated production of The Last Unicorn. In hopes of rescuing her exiled breed, the last unicorn (voice by Mia Farrow) teams up with the kindly, if bumbling wizard Schmendrick the Magician (voice by Alan Arkin), who accompanies her on the far-reaching and treacherous quest to save her kind. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Some horrific moments (the mark of the best fairytales) and some sublimely witty lines."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Weighted with moments of surprising power yet undone by crazed-crank nickelodeon pacing."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Rankin-Bass has a flair for stories like this, though the horrid songs almost undo it all."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"A story filled with genuine sweetness and mystery."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"The Last Unicorn is sure to be a rare treat for lovers of fantasy."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"The standard 'quest' material that most fantasy is made of, but in this case heroics and spectacle are secondary to drama"
‑ Shane Burridge,
"Nearly everyone who waxes rhapsodic over The Last Unicorn starts off noting how they 'grew up' on the film."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Greatly underrated animated film; worth seeing"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
