Fun but slightly silly movie, really great to see it again after so many years! I think I always mixed this one up with the Lord of the Rings, which someone once told me never existed (maybe that was in a time before IMDB?), so I merged the two. Some similar moments, themes, and character/ plot points but (of course) minus the amazing power of SCIENCE!
I will definitely recommend this to my under 10 year old boy without any reservations, this is a fully fledged movie, simple but motivated characters, and super safe as far as G ratings go, there is some death and references to death, and a handful of scenes with knight/dragon/wizard/ogre violence. This is a kids fantasy that is so much more than the poster illustration shown here even hints at!

a fantastic animated movie with enchanted and fantasy, Good vs. Evil. I seen this movie on The Disney Channel when I was kid, I like this movie

A gem from my childhood and forever embedded in my memory, watching it again makes me marvel at how it is still very much a fantasy story in the veins of The Lord of The Rings with some rather dark villains, but it really does turn some of the usual fantasy genre elements around into something quite unique. Give me this sort of fantasy any day than the Game of Thrones stuff.

Nobody can beat the legacy which Rankin/Bass has created, and boy does it shine through this one or not!?

Wonderful piece of my childhood is a more or less unknown gem by Rankin-Bass, the same production house that made The Last Unicorn. I actually like it much better than The Last Unicorn.

Fantastic voice acting from John Denver as Peter Dickinson, James Earl Jones as Ommadon (think Vader but darker), and Harry Morgan as Carolinus.

Mesmerizing and brilliant hidden gem from Rankin/Bass.

This film has everything that makes a children's film amazing: Escapism, adventure and imagination yet is held together by a fantastic plot addressing all sorts of issues we face as both children and adults making it suitable for all. Change, ageing, facing up to your demons, good: "Good would be totally impotent without the contrast of evil" and evil: "I have weapons you would not dare use, fear rules all man ... he will use science and logic to destroy himself ... turn brother against brother ... greed and avarice shall prevail" Pretty deep for a children's film! The music is fantastic and compliments each scene perfectly. All the best films do.

Despite poor animation, the character designs and plot are very good.

Yet another film from Rankin & Bass, this epic fantasy may be light on story and well developed characters but it's colorful and fun setting is well worth the watch.

Simply fantastic. A true classic, even its flaws are charming.

While my kids definitely liked it, I wasn't a huge fan. It's back & forth between science & magic was neat, as was the final battle with the ogre & the flight of dragons, but the final defeat of the bad wizard by spouting science was a little odd. Not terrible, but not great.

La recuerdo como si fuera ayer, musica, animacion, y el gran final, que a un chaval le choca, pero es mas que curioso verlo plasmado en una peli para ninyos: la ciencia vence a la magia.
