Synopsis


The Flight of Dragons
This animated fantasy film, from the creators of The Last Unicorn, unfolds in an age when magic and science coexist uneasily, and humans still walk the earth alongside wizards, unicorns, and dragons. One of the four most powerful mages on the planet, Carolinus the Green Wizard (voice of Harry Morgan) realizes that magic's power is slipping in favor of the logic of science -- a potential detriment to men, who need such magic to provide regular inspiration for themselves. Carolinus thus summons his three brothers for an emergency tête-à-tête, and suggests that they create a separate magical realm for themselves, via which they can send man the magic he needs on a regular basis. Two of the brothers agree, but the third -- the evil wizard Ommadon -- not only refuses to be shuttled off to this removed existence but vows to wage full-scale war on humankind with evil feelings and ideas. Because the rules of the universe forbid Carolinus and his other two siblings from going head-to-head with Ommadon, they must seek out a human hero with the power to stop him. Carolinus sends this request to the Fates. They, in turn, select Peter (voiced by John Ritter), who is, of all things, a man of science. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

    A true classic. I remember watching this movie when I was a kid, till we wore out the tape it was on, and had to buy another. The plot revolves around the changing from a time of magic and fantasy, to a time of science. The soundtrack, particularly the opening theme never fails to bring my family to silence, as we all remember it with a sense of peaceful nostalgia, and have watched it several times since the DVD was finally released. I can not recommend this movie enough, honestly. Watch it with the whole family.

    I remember having this on VHS and thought it was great growing up and it actually did stand the test of time unlike most things from childhood.
