An old fairy tale gets some new wrinkles in this fanciful animated adaptation. After young Jack is conned into trading his family's prize cow for a handful of beans, he plants them and discovers they produce a magical vine that rises through the clouds. Climbing the beanstalk, Jack encounters a strange and remarkable world ruled by the magical Princess Margaret. The princess is in love with Prince Tulip despite his unattractive features and harsh personality, but as it turns out, this is the work of Madam Noir, an evil witch who has cast a spell on the princess so she will marry Tulip, her only son. Can Jack help the princess avoid this awful fate? Directed by Japanese animator Gisaburo Sugii, this free adaptation of Jack and the Beanstalk has won a cult following for its fanciful story and wildly colorful design.

It's quite worrying at times but I suggest you watch this seeing as you'll never watch anything else like it!

A feature-length re-telling of the classic fairy tale. But in order to pad it out to a full ninety minutes, this version adds in a few extra characters and an extra sub-plot storyline involving the giant's evil mother, his magically-enchanted betrothed, Jack's dog and a whole bevy of mice.

Overall, it's a fair-to-middlin' movie, with a story and animation that is aimed squarely at the pre-teen audience. Even though this is billed as an 'anime' movie, most movies that were created in this time period still had a very heavy Disney influence and did not contain many (if ...
