The Little Unicorn

Please choose a format above.

The Little Unicorn is a tale of whimsy, fantasy, and extremely generous definitions of the word “little.” Turns out making CGI little unicorns is way more difficult than strapping a horn to a regular horse and shining a blue spotlight on it, so the unicorn in question remains little for maybe fifteen seconds of screen time.

When reports of a regular-sized unicorn surface in the English countryside, all the local scumbags are seeing dollar signs. Evidently a completely normal in stature unicorn is something that could make a regional circus owner a millionaire, instead of being the type of thing your average person glances at and goes “Huh” before heading to the concession stand to see if circus peanuts are still as gross as they remember. (They are.)

And since your pre-teen daughter is no doubt pulling on your sleeve and demanding to know, YES, OF COURSE George Hamilton is in this movie! He stars as the unicorn’s leather saddle.

Join Mike, Kevin, Bill, and a whole bunch of those sparkly puffy unicorn stickers you get for a quarter from the machines after the checkout stands in the grocery store for The Little Unicorn!
