    Where have you been? Where have you been?... And where were you 20 years ago? Ten years ago? Where were you when I was new? When I was one of those innocent young maidens you always come to?

  • The Voice Cast's Performance Underscores The Characters' Sadness And Regret on Random 'Last Unicorn' Is A Beloved Cartoon More Disturbing And Sad Than We Remember

    (#13) The Voice Cast's Performance Underscores The Characters' Sadness And Regret

    The Last Unicorn is brought to life by a cast of voice actors that are as colorful and unique as they are melancholy. The title unicorn is played by Mia Farrow, who speaks in a gentle whisper. It's an eerily sad voice, making it sound almost as if something tragic is constantly happening to the unicorn.

    Alan Arkin voices the not-so-seasoned magician Schmendrick, who rarely casts powerful magic and mostly stays in the realm of party tricks. Although well known among other wizards, he's a traveler who is not very respected. He doesn't believe in his own powers, and his voice often shows his insecurities. Mommy Fortuna, the old witch he travels with, a raspy and vile example of magic gone wrong, is voiced by Angela Lansbury, and her incantations cackle over her decrepit cages she uses to capture the creatures of the forests.

    Jeff Bridges plays the hopelessly romantic Prince Lir, who sings a haunting duet about his love for the unicorn. His father, the sinister King Haggard, is voiced by Christopher Lee. His character's vocals go from harsh and shrill to psychotic and mumbly as he struggles to possess all the unicorns in existence.

    (#3) The Unicorn Is Captured By Mommy Fortuna, A Horrifying Witch Who Torments Animals In Her Circus

    Mommy Fortuna is the twisted ringleader of her circus of magical creatures. Some of the animals she keeps in cages are nothing but sickly creatures, such as lions and snakes, that have been masked to look like other beasts. She casts spells to trick onlookers into believing they're seeing manticores and satyrs rather than old lions and chimps.

    However, Mommy Fortuna has also managed to capture two real magical creatures, the unicorn and the harpy. While the unicorn tells her that she wishes to be free, Mommy Fortuna taunts and mocks her in her barred cage.

    (#9) The Group Meets King Haggard, Whose Depression And Apathy Has Turned Him Evil

    When the unicorn enters King Haggard's castle, they discover the king is a lonely old man. Aside from his son, Prince Lir, and his magician, he is very much alone. The king no longer has any will to entertain a kingdom, and prefers his lowly and depressed state.

    This state of being has caused King Haggard to seek out other forms of enjoyment. Party tricks, balls, and the royalties that come along with being a king provide nothing for him. The only thing that lifts his spirits is the capture and confinement of all the unicorns in the world in the sea below his castle.
