January 2014: I got to see the movie and meet him! Found out that the manga is getting close to being finished. Getting out legal copies of the music is on the back burner. The audio book, they are still waiting for the rest of the art. Also, talks about a possible musical??? Live action version; the rights come back in 2015, wait and see with that.

2012: At the panel Peter S. Beagle had at Phoenix Comicon 2012, he announced that there will be a reworking of the movie, adding scenes, making the animation better and in 3D, maybe a new song, the soundtrack released in the US and all the music, and MERCHANDISE! Yes, plushies and other things. Also, Peter said he would love to see a lunch box. There is a manga version of the story in the works. It will not be a straight retelling like the graphic novel is. In other news, the soundtrack CD that is out there is not legal. There will be a release of a legal copy hopefully soon.


The Book
"The Last Unicorn" By Peter S. Beagle.
The Last Unicorn Read it. Love it.
There is a 40th Anniversary edition (Did you know one and a half sentences have been missing till now?), Publisher Roc and Cover by Rebeka Naomi Cox. (ISBN-10: 0451450523 seems to be the correct ISBN, but it pull up the old edition cover when I search Amazon) but it can be bought at conlanpress.com

Then you can get "Two Hearts" (A short story sequel, available in the collections: The Line Between and Mirror Kingdoms: The Best of Peter S. Beagle.
A short story about Schmendrick set before TLU is in the book Sleight of Hand.

The First Last Unicorn and Other Beginnings "...adventure of the last unicorn, in which she bands together with a duo of ambivalent demons to seek out her lost brethren." If I remember what Peter said at the panel, This was never finished and he then restarted with the Unicorn and made the book we love. The Last Unicorn: The Lost Version This one looks like an older publication of the same story.

There is an Unabridged Audiobook, read by the author; The Last Unicorn. Also can get it at www.conlanpress.com/


The Movie
The Last Unicorn This DVD is Full screen, no extras and bad quality, but people bought it like crazy making way for The Last Unicorn the 25th Anniversary edition remastered, with extras like an interview with Peter S. Beagle.
There is now a blu ray/dvd The Last Unicorn (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) version that has super awesome extras like audio commentary by Peter S. Beagle, a documentary, among other things. A reworking of the movie is in the works.


The Comic
If you have read this far, then you will be excited to know there is a "The Last Unicorn" comic. Six issues from IDW Publishing (Each issue has two covers.) or get the trade, which collects all the issues together in one book.
The Last Unicorn Click on "Search inside this book" to see some of the beautiful art from the trade. There is now a larger version of the comic, Last Unicorn: The Deluxe Edition Last Unicorn: The Deluxe Edition which has a extra story you can't get elsewhere.
A retelling of the story in the manga style is also in the works.


The Music
The music. You can't think of the movie without thinking of the music, performed by America and composed and written by Jimmy Webb. The soundtrack going by "Das Letzte Einhorn" is not legally put out. Hopefully a legit CD will be made with all the music from the movie and possibly a new song. Wait for it.
