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 … More

Critic Reviews for FernGully - The Last Rainforest
Still relevant theme of saving rainforests is fine children's animation, pre-Pixar, pre-digital.
A self-important environmental message piece that only Sting could love.
Hey, if the Veggie Tales folks can sell religion in this fashion, then I say the environmental lobby deserves their fair shot as well.
Hardly an obstacle to the Disney machine, it is still plesant.
Audience Reviews for FernGully - The Last Rainforest
In retrospect it's not a bad film. Sure its style is a mix of Disney, Warner Brothers and Hanna-Barbera but its songs and message where its own. It was quite a popular subject in the early 90's and I remember much was taught in schools about the rainforest, recycling etc. You can't knock the message, well maybe you can knock the underline spirituality nonsense but the songs are pretty good! A great slice of early 90's animation, I quite enjoyed its simplicity compared to today's 3D wizardry but I'm glad cartoons are a little less serious and play more for laughs like they used to.More
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.More
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.More
Tim curry did a fantastic job along with robin willaims in this movie and its fairly decent but only kids will like itMore
