retro trailer: ‘The Last Unicorn’

Take a look back at an old trailer…

Man, fantasy animation has moved on a bit since 1982, has it not? Voice acting, too. Dear oh dear, but the dialogue is cringeworthy today, isn’t it? Alan Arkin as the second-rate pickpocket might be the most awkward, but Jeff Bridges is a close second with that line about heroes.

Gotta love those on-the-nose lyrics, too: “Look and see her, how she sparkles, she’s the last unicorn!”

Still, we are all precious unicorns, aren’t we?

I predict that in 2982, someone will make a fantasy movie called The Last Polar Bear

The Last Unicorn is available on DVD in Region 1 and Region 2.
