Movie Info

A man finds himself living among the animals and enchanted spirits of the rainforest, and learns of the true consequences of human destruction in this animated adventure. Crysta (voice of Samantha Mathis) is a young fairy who is being tutored in the powers of magic by the older and wiser Magi (voice of Grace Zabriskie) in an Amazon rain forest. While their home was once on the verge of destruction thanks to the evil spirit Hexxus (voice of Tim Curry), the demon has been trapped inside a tree, and Crysta is free to play with her friends Batty Koda (voice of Robin Williams), a bat who escaped from an animal testing facility, and Pips (voice of Christian Slater), who has obvious romantic intentions toward the attractive young sprite. However, a clear-cutting crew destroys the tranquil peace of the rainforest, and when Crysta sees a runaway logging machine about to run over lumberjack Zak (voice of Jonathan Ward), she saves his life by shrinking him to her own size. However, Crysta isn't able to bring Zak back to his normal size, so he's forced to live among the forest creatures and learn first-hand the devastation the humans have brought to this world -- especially when the loggers accidentally free Hexxus from captivity. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Children would learn more about natural processes from five minutes of any David Attenborough film than they could from all of FernGully.

The visuals are very pleasing. The story tells a useful lesson, the jungle inhabitants are amusing, and although the movie is not a masterpiece it's pleasant to watch for its humor and sweetness.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Yet praising the punctual effort to do something different, the movie falls on all the topics associated with Disney cinema and it doesn't try to hide it.

With production, writing, acting and animation contributions from the United States, Australia, Canada, Denmark, England, Korea and Thailand, this cautionary fable sets an admirable example for the governments of said nations.

Still relevant theme of saving rainforests is fine children's animation, pre-Pixar, pre-digital.

Audience Reviews for FernGully - The Last Rainforest


Not just a cartoon but one with a message: it's all in the title. In the world of CGI the old school hand-drawn looks old some, but it's for the kids and so ... they might appreciate it's magic.

This was one of my favourite movies as a kid, and I think kids today should see it too. It has a wonderful lesson about pollution and the destruction of rainforests, but it's also exciting, creepy, funny, and entertaining. There are some great songs too. Plus, it's about fairies, and a human who gets shrunk down to their size, the classic take a walk in someone else's shoes story. I love this movie.
