Ecological-minded animated fantasy about a fairy, a fruit-bat and a miniaturised lumberjack who unite to save a rainforest from an evil spirit who aims to destroy it.
Overall, the animation is rather decent for a non-Disney production and the story is entertaining enough, with a well-intended moral that we should all respect nature. Under-12's will enjoy it much more than any other demographic.
A straight to video sequel followed.
