INTRO LINES MAGI LUNE: Our world was much larger then. The forest went on forever. We tree spirits nurtured the harmony of all living thingsWe 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...

FULL QUOTES PART 1 MAGI LUNE: Crysta? CRYSTA: Yes. MAGI LUNE: That is why it is so important for you to learn the secrets of Crystait is so important for you to learn the secrets of Crysta! 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! PIPS: Hey! CRYSTA: Pips. PIPS: You know, you're spending more time with Magi than you do with me. CRYSTA: Well, what can I learn from you? PIPS: Hey! STUMP: Comin' through! Watch out! Here I come! There she goes. ROOT: Come on. Don't lose her. Whoa! CRYSTA: Okay. PIPS: Crysta, stop! ALL: Whoa! ROOT: Never, never go above the canopy. Never go above the canopy. PIPS: Crysta! Crysta! I got ya. ROOT: Are you crazy, going above the canopy? STUMP: Yeah, we was almost falcon fodder. CRYSTA: I've got to tell Magi. PIPS: Tell Magi what? Hey, wait! What'd you see, up thereWhat'd you see, up there? OCK: Halt! Who goes there? ROCK: Hi, Crysta! OCK: Okay, what's the password? CRYSTA: Oh, come on, you guys. OCK: Is that the password? ROCK: It sounds good. CRYSTA: Bye. ROCK: "Bye." That's it! That's the password! OCK: Well, I don't know if that's the password or not. I'm so confused, you... CRYSTA: 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... MAGI LUNE: Mountain. That was Mount Warning. CRYSTA: And next to it was a... I don't know. It looked like a strange black cloud rising out of the earthIt looked like a strange black cloud rising out of the earth. MAGI LUNE: Smoke, I should think. CRYSTA: What's smoke? MAGI LUNE: 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. CRYSTA: Why can't I do it? MAGI LUNE: Everyone can call on the magic powers of the web of life. You have to find it in yourself. CRYSTA: I want to, Magi. You know I do. But I was thinking about that smoke. Do you think it could be Hexxus? MAGI LUNE: No, there isn't a force in nature that could release him, and there are no poisons here on which he can feed. Hexxus is trapped for all time. Now that's enough for today. CRYSTA: But what could have caused the smoke? MAGI LUNE: Now, now, now, off with you. CRYSTA: But, Magi...

Movie review

What "Ferngully" has instead are politically correct attitudes about conservation, pollution and junk food, subjects that may not be entirely riveting for children but that are ostensibly close to parental hearts. In that regard, this animated feature would be a shade more admirable if it didn't also have a coquettish, turquoise-eyed heroine who is referred to as a "bodacious babe." (Janet Maslin, New York Times, April 10, 1992)

Trivia

To avoid the competition with Disney's Beauty and the Beast the film was released in April 1992.
The "FernGully" forest depicted in the film was actually based on Australia's rainforests. The cartoonists who worked on the film spent time in the real rainforests to help inspire their drawings.
Robin Williams' first role in an animated film.
