Crysta, from Fern Gully

I gotta say, this has been the hardest one to finish so far. actual content being the issue. i remember the movie fondly as a kid, but re-watching it as an adult, there was something a bit unnerving and sometimes boring about how it played out. don't get me wrong, i still like it, but its extreeeemely dated, and the musical numbers were cringe worthy. (especially the bat rap. wtf 90's.)

Except for the -ridiculously- sexual tones of the Nexxus song as he humped the Leveler machine. that was hilarious.

Why are her feet on fire?  I don't remember Crysta with blue fire on her feet.

it's cause of the way she flies. they got all glowy whenever they flew somewhere, so this is stylized.

Ok.  I remember her magic was blue, just didn't remember her feet glowing.

good god i was just thinking of this movie the other day. honestly as a kid i thought it was a sequel, since the elder fairy always told the legend of how she sealed that demon thing into the tree. i wanna see that made into a prequel. i've heard the sequel sucks, anyway.

also, the dated numbers just add to the fun. lulz, A WALKMAN.

Yuuussss. I loved Ferngully as a kid, loved it so much. Watching it now... I agree one hundred percent. Of course, ever since the Rocky Horror Picture show, I now think everything Tim Curry does has sexual undertones...

But beautiful work, nonetheless. I love all these pieces, you've sent me on an odyssey of nostalgia, which is also making me seriously consider therapy...
