Comparisons to Avatar aside, FernGully: The Last Rainforest is a film of a lot of firsts.
It wasn't just one of the first animated features to combine traditional and computer animation; it was also one of the first to be produced with remote artists, Robin Williams' first animated role (no, not the Genie!), and the first movie to be screened at the UN General Assembly. It's also got itself a spot in the Guinness World Records, too!
Portions of its profits were donated to Greenpeace, the Rainforest Foundation Fund, and the Sierra Club, as well as a special fund benefiting environmental projects worldwide that was administered by the Smithsonian Institution.
This was a movie that fully believed in its mission to help save the environment, and it all started with a mother's bedtime stories to her children in Byron Bay, Australia...
