1. The plot. (Сюжет)
Krista is a fabulous curious Nature who lives in ferngully, the pristine rain forest without human intervention. Fairies ferngully once lived in harmony with people, but we believe that they died out after was banished the dark spirit named Hexxus. Wedges are the apprentice sorcerers, a motherly-figure fairy of music Hexxus tree. Once the wedges explores a new part of the forest and meets a Batty, a bat who claims that conducted experiments on people, giving it a daring and unstable personality. However, fairies refuse to believe it, but the wedges that volunteers understand the situation. She sees Zach, a young woodcutter who accidentally shrinks wedges, when she tries to save him crushed by a falling tree, though I dont know how to restore it to normal size.
The tree that Hexxus is imprisoned in a knocks Tony and Ralph, chiefs Sachs. Hexxus quickly begins to restore his powers by feeding on pollution. He manipulates people to get to ferngully. In ferngully, Zak meets a points fairy is jealous of the relationship Zaks with Crysta. Zack starts to fall in love with Crysta, but conceals the true reason that people came back. If signs of Hexxuss Resurrection begin to show in the poisoned trees and rivers, he finally recognizes that people are destroying the forest. Fairy mount attempt to protect their homes, but knowing that their struggle is hopeless, Zack convinces Betty to help him stop the machine before it will destroy them. When Zack makes his presence known Tony and Ralph, Hexxus takes his gun and starts wildly to destroy the forest.
Magi sacrifices herself in order to give the fairies a chance, and she said wedges to remember everything she learned. Zack manages to stop the car, depriving Hexxus the source of his power, but it manifests itself in the oil in the machine and begins to light the forest on fire. Wedges seemingly sacrifices himself, allowing himself to be devoured by Hexxus and all seems lost, until he begins to sprout limbs and leaves like a tree. Points and the other fairies rally the powers given them, which causes seed, wedges fed it to start growing wildly. Hexxus and the machine at the same time concluded a re-grown tree on the border of the Valley of the ferns, which thrives. Krista appears after the battle, having survived her trials and successfully succeeded Magi as a magical fairy. She gives Zach a seed, begging him to remember everything that happened, and it is, unfortunately, restores it to the size of a person. Remembering the seed in hand, Zach promises to remember his adventures, and buries the seed in the soil, before Tony and Ralph, that things must change as they leave the forest behind. Seed sprouts of new growth to ferngully, as the wedges should pips with Betty after her.
2. Topics. (Темы)
In the book Disney, Pixar, and the hidden messages of childrens films, M. Keith Booker argues that ferngully "focuses on the theme of the destruction of the rainforest Land. In this case, a tropical rain forest near mount warning, on the Eastern coast of Australia, but the topic is global in a certain place, not stressed". Despite the ecological theme Booker said the film was "somewhat vague explanation of the adverse consequences of tropical deforestation, and it refers to the economic incentive of this destruction hardly at all," the fact that the rainforest was saved at the end of the movie "reduces the sharpness of his environmentalist message" and that the character Hexxus "is replacing the real blame for the environmental destruction from the real culprits to a non-existent supernatural perpetrators, further diluting the political message." Character Betty announced the introduction of "side-the subject of experiments on animals, although with a light touch, which is represented by this potentially terrifying motive, since, in fact, a humorous".
In the book Eco-impacts and the greening of postmodernity, Tom Jagtenberg and David McKie remark that the radical views of ecology flourished in the film, perhaps because it was "aimed at the younger generation. and belong to a relatively discredited genres". As Zack shrunk to the size of fairies and integrated in the fairy world, more similarities than differences implied with nonhuman characters. N said to defeat the evil Hexxus "in the manner of the classic Western genre heroes", although the only difference is that her weapon is a seed, not a revolver, allowing us to produce from nature, to share the heroic role with her.
3. Production. (Производство)
Producer Wayne young said his passion for the environment was his motivation for the film, saying the film was "blatantly environment, though we went through a lot of trouble to avoid preaching. We also want to make it look like entertainment." The inspiration for ferngully came from the stories written by his ex-wife, Diana young. First Diana wrote a story about ferngully 15 years prior to the release of films. Wayne said that the couple had planned a film adaptation for five years, and then spent "seven years of dreaming and fuss, and then another three years of production." Wayne said his dream was not possible as long as the success of Walt Disney presents the animation of the 1989 film "the little Mermaid", which brought popularity back to the animation. Hand-drawn scenes in the film were supplemented by computer animation that was used to create elements such as flocks of birds that would have taken much longer to animate traditionally. States Kroyer of 40.000 frames of computer graphics was used in the film, and that the use of such animations to halve the production time. Most of the films budget of $ 24 million was spent on animation and sound.
The film marked Robins first role Williamss animation, with the character of Betty code is created specifically for it. Williams provided 14 hours of improvised lines for the part that was initially conceived as eight minutes. Bill Kroyer, the Director was so impressed with the voice acting, it was three times the screen time given to the character. Williams continued to provide highly applauded the voice of Genie in disneys Aladdin later the same year.

In the film for the first time, it was noted that both members of the Cheech and Chong have been working together for six years, with two voiced brothers beetle stump and root. Cheech Marin said, "It was like old times, but we only worked two or three hours, ate pizza and split".
