"The Last Unicorn" is about a unicorn who realizes that she is the last and sets out on a journey to find out where all the other unicorns have gone. She meets up with a bungling magician, Schmendrick, and they continue the journey together to the castle of King Hagrid where they encounter The Red Bull, a mystical creature that gathers unicorns for Hagrid. In order to escape the Bull, Schmendrick transforms the unicorn into a human woman. This transformation leads to the unicorn being able to experience regret, something other unicorns are unable to feel.

The review of this Movie prepared by Emma

This is a beautiful cartoon about the last unicorn searching for the rest of her species. Along the way she meets a would-be magician and a hardened criminal women with a soft heart. If you love unicorns, you have to see this movie. The music is great too, performed by "America."
