FernGully, an animated musical with a central theme of environmentalism, is that film where Robin Williams voices a bat named Batty who raps and to which James Cameron’s Avatar is
In a lovely forest in Australia, there lives a thriving fairy colony, safe and considerate of all nature until humans return and beginning chopping down trees, destroying both their home and the prison of an evil oil-guzzling and smooth-voiced spirit. And—where would the Avatar comparisons be without—that one human who, accidentally shrunk, becomes part of the fairy world and learns their perspective.
FernGully is a frolic through pretty imagery, fairly interesting characters, and a solid plot. The film also stars the well-known talents of Robin Williams (Batty Koda), Tim Curry (Hexxus), Christian Slater (Pips), Samantha Mathis (Crysta), and Jonathan Ward as human Zak.
