FernGully: The Last Rainforest

Ignoring the warnings of her friends, Crysta the curious tree fairy, explores the world beyond FernGully. She discovers Zak, a real live human, who currently has a job helping to demolish the rainforest. Once Zak sees the beauty and magic of FernGully, he vows to save it but it may already be too late. Unbeknownst to fairy folk, the humans have accidently released the diabolical Hexxus, spirit of destruction, who is intent on destroying all of FernGully.

animated movie FernGully: The Last Rainforest © FAI FilmsOriginally an Australian project, FernGully was lost to American producers when the $20M budget could not be raised locally.

When FernGully came out, we were in the midst of a mini-environmental revolution--biodegradable diapers, fancy reusable bags at the grocery store, the banishment of styrofoam from McDonald's, etc. etc. In the grand scheme of things it was barely a blip on the social-awareness radar, but what it did do for FernGully was provide it with many people who wanted to get in on its environmental act--particularly in the music department. This film is packed with a variety of environmentally-conscious tunes from Sheena Easton, Raffi, Tone-Loc, Elton John and others.
