FernGully: The Last Rainforest

Synopsis: The fairies live in a peaceful place in the forest called Fern Gully which has been protected for many years by Magi, a wise fairy with strong powers. Her grand-daughter Crysta is a charming, beautiful fairy that is very intrigued about the world outside of Fern Gully. She along with the other fairies in the forest do not believe humans exist and are only in stories, until a crazy bat by the name of Batty, comes and tells them all these crazy stories about how he was captured by humans and experimented on. At first no one believes him except Crysta and she is determined to find out if humans are real. She goes to a place called Mount Warning, where the evil shadow of destruction Hexxus is known to be trapped, and finds a human named Zak. When he is almost crushed by a tree Crysta accidently shrinks him to fairy-size and he falls on a tree that is about to be devoured by "The Leveller". "The Leveller" is a wood cutting machine that has been cutting down every tree the humans have been p

Our world was much larger then.

The forest went on forever.

We tree spirits nurtured the harmony

of all living things,

but our closest friends

were humans.

Then, as sometimes happens,

the balance of nature shifted,

and Hexxus...

the very spirit of destruction...

rose up from the bowels

of the earth...

and rained down his poison.

The forest was nearly destroyed.

Many lives were lost,

and the humans fled in fear,

never to return.

Most think they didn't survive.

It was only by calling up

the magical powers of nature...

that I was able to trap Hexxus

inside an enchanted tree...

and save FernGully.

Which is why it is so important

for you to learn to use these powers.

I won't be around forever,

and you'll have to...



That is why it is so important

for you to learn the secrets of...


- Crysta!

- Magi, yes. The secrets.

I know. But, I mean,

it's all right now.

That was so long ago, and you trapped

him in that tree and everything, so...

I really have to go now,

but I'll see you later, okay? Bye!


- Hey!

- Pips.

You know, you're spending more time

with Magi than you do with me.

Well, what can I

learn from you?

- Hey!

- [Music] When the sleepy planet comes alive [music]

[Music]And I wake up

in the warm sunlight [music]

[Music] There's a simple harmony

to life [music]

[Music]A magic thing [music]

[Music] Then I walk among

the flowers and trees [music]

Hi, Ock. Hi, Rock.


- [Both Squawking]

- [Music]And I feel the earth

beneath my feet [music]

[Music]And I remember that

the air we breathe [music]

[Music]Is a magic thing [music]

[Music]Everybody, now

Life is a magic thing [music]

[Music] Yeah, yeah [music]

[Slurping, Grunting]

- [Music]Life is a magic thing [music]

- [Protesting, Yelling]

- Comin' through!

Watch out! Here I come!

- [Music] Yeah, yeah, yeah [music]

[Music]Life is a magic thing [music]

[Music] Yeah, yeah

Yeah [music]

[Music]Life is a magic thing [music]

[Music] Yeah, yeah, yeah [music]

[Music] Yeah, yeah, yeah [music]

There she goes.

Come on. Don't lose her.


- Okay.

- Crysta, stop!



Never, never go above the canopy.

Never go above the canopy.




- [Screeching]

- [Screaming]

- I got ya.

- [Gasping, Panting]

Are you crazy,

going above the canopy?

Yeah, we was almost

falcon fodder.

- I've got to tell Magi.

- Tell Magi what?

Hey, wait!

Wh-What'd you see...

up there?

- Halt! Who goes there?

- Hi, Crysta!

- Okay, what's the password?

- Oh, come on, you guys.

- Is that the password?

- It sounds good.

- Bye.

- "Bye." That's it!

That's the password!

Well, I don't know if that's the

password or not. I'm so confused, you...

Magi? Magi.

Oh, Magi, I just saw the most

incredible thing above the canopy.

A whole other world.

The sky went on forever.

And way over in the distance

as far as I could see,

there was this enormous rock

like a...


That was Mount Warning.

And next to it was a... a...

I don't know.

It looked like a strange black cloud

rising out of the earth.

- Smoke, I should think.

- What's smoke?

Oh, there are many things in our world

you don't yet know about, Crysta.

There are worlds

within worlds, Crysta.

Everything in our world

is connected by the delicate

strands of the web of life,

which is balanced

between forces of destruction...

and the magic forces

of creation.

Help it grow.

Why can't I do it?

Everyone can call on

the magic powers of the web of life.
