    One of the most beloved fantasy films of all-time, THE LAST UNICORN (1982) has enraptured generations of fans with its poetic tale of a brave unicorn’s journey through a mystic land, seeking others of her kind. Available on 4K UHD for the first time as a 4K UHD +Blu-ray combo pack on August 20, 2024 from Shout! Studios, the new release is a 4K Transfer of the 35mm interpositive along with Dolby Vision, and includes a number of bonus features including a Q&A with Peter S. Beagle and more!

    The release will also be available as a SteelBook with new art, available exclusively at Walmart. Fans who purchase the standard edition 4KUHD +Blu-ray directly from Shout! will receive a double-sided poster featuring both the SteelBook and standard edition art, based on the original theatrical poster, while supplies last.

    Showcasing the latest hi-definition restoration of the uncut film, endorsed by Peter S. Beagle, THE LAST UNICORN is brought to life with exquisite detail never before seen, to ensure the most satisfying film viewing experience for all fans, old and young alike.

    From Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass (THE HOBBIT), THE LAST UNICORN is a magical adventure featuring an all-star cast, including Mia Farrow, Jeff Bridges, Christopher Lee, Alan Arkin, Tammy Grimes, Angela Lansbury, René Auberjonois and Robert Klein, and unforgettable songs from the rock band, America.

    Upon hearing that she may be the very last of her kind on Earth, a Unicorn (Mia Farrow) goes in search of others like her. Her quest won't be easy, as it leads her straight to the evil King Haggard (Christopher Lee) and his infamous Red Bull! And the journey is made even more complicated when, to protect her from the envious wrath of Haggard, a spell is cast to turn the Unicorn into the Lady Amalthea, a beautiful, young human woman. But with this new body comes new thoughts and feelings, such as love for Haggard's son, Prince Lir (Jeff Bridges). Will Amalthea get lost inside this new body? Will she meet the fate of the other Unicorns? Or will she be able to defeat Haggard and his Red Bull with the aid of her friends, Schmendrick the bumbling magician (Alan Arkin) and Molly Grue (Tammy Grimes)?
