Quoted from The-Last-Unicorn.net:
Now The Last Unicorn will be soon a magical fantasy film - a complete new re-creation of the novel, newly rewritten for the screen by Peter S. Beagle. A worldwide movie event with outstanding actors, fantastic sets and locations, wildlife, and trained animals, seamlessly blended with computer-created, realistic creatures and fantasy worlds. We call it Magical Realism.
A new, amazing live action drama -an adventure that feels real with realistically looking digital characters, mixed with real actors, real locations, real animals and a firework of magical special effects - a re-imagination of one of the most beautiful and enchanting fantasy classics of all times - alive on the big screen.
Some of the world's best talents have joined forces to create this masterpiece of visual magic in 24 months production time.

Hrm! Unusual! You can download the whole script for the movie from the website. It reads rather nicely.
Though am I the only one that reads it, sees references to the Red Bull, and thinks, "Red Bull gives you wings!"
Peter had mentioned that he was working on and pitching a script for a live-action remake when he was our Guest of Honor at CF12 this past april.
[Plug] He'd be a great guest for other conventions, and is quite approachable... He was thrilled to find out that there is this whole fandom around animal characters. [/plug]
ConFurence will again be at the Burbank Hilton, April 25-27, 2003. Visit http://confurence.net for more details on this and other events being hosted by The ConFurence Group.
Oh, yes. One more question about the script.
I -do- hope that the constant references to CU the Unicorn mean 'Close Up the Unicorn'. Or I'll never get over everyone commenting on my initials in the script!
