An underrated movie that perfectly displays how a dream works.
This movie is pure magic for someone who likes 1980's animation. It's bad when it needs to be bad and good when it needs to be good. But beyond being an iconic entertaining 1980's animated made for TV movie this film manages to achieve something which not even a lot of big budget movies does. It perfectly displays how a dream works. It jumps from place to place in quick succession without braking the pace of the movie nor interrupting the plot, just like a dream. It also features some common "dream rules", like for example achieving something impossible with just your own imagination. This together with magic and memorable characters in an interesting world really flares up your imagination, especially after you have seen the movie and the memories starts to blur, just like a good dream.
Something which i should mention though is that the quality of the movie varies depending on which dub you are watching. I personally have mainly watched the Swedish dub since i am Swedish and comparing it to the English dub there is a notable difference in quality where the English dub is worse. I think the English dub is one of the main reasons why a lot of people don't like this movie. Another Swedish dub thing i want to point out is that the Swedish dubbing team didn't get a clean copy of the movie and had to dub over the English voice actors. This isn't a huge problem and is barely noticeable for most of the movie but it really shows during the songs as the music disappears when the characters are singing. This forces the voice actors to sing as well as they can to sort of fill in for the lack of music and some songs like the song "Nothing is impossible at all" sounds really good and deep.
