FernGully: The Last RainforestClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that FernGully has some tense and scary moments, though lots of humor takes the edge off. The oil is a dark blob that comes to life in the form of a monster. It attacks the foliage and it's inhabitants. Zak pulls a pocket knife on Batty in effort to protect Crysta, but the scene is comical rather than frightening. The movie promotes a strong environmental and conservation message, along with an anti-animal testing message, though kids might not catch all the lessons thanks to the distraction of the magical creatures and jolly songs.
