FERNGULLY: THE LAST RAINFOREST

BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELL
MAY 1, 2013

Short and sweet, “FernGully” packs more beautiful animated imagery and life lessons into 72 minutes than most films fit in twice that run-time. The voice acting is high caliber, with Robin Williams, Tim Curry, Christian Slater, and Cheech & Chong offering exceptional voice-over. Original for its time, this family favorite provides memorable tunes, iconic animation, and a story that still teaches valuable lessons two decades later.
