The Elm-Chanted Forest (Čudesna šuma) is a 1986 U.S./Yugoslavian animated musical movie; in the U.S., it is also known as Fantasy Forest. It was the first full-length film directed by Milan Blažeković, and also the first animated feature produced in what is now Croatia.[1] It spawned a 1989 sequel, The Magician's Hat (Čarobnjaknov šesir), which was seldom seen outside its home country.


Plot summary

After an artist named Peter Palette takes a nap under an enchanted elm tree, he discovers that he now has the ability to communicate with the animals of the forest, and that his paintbrush now has magical powers. To help his new friends survive, he must use his abilities to stop the evil Cactus King from turning the forest into a desert.


In the U.S., Celebrity Home Entertainment's Just for Kids label released The Elm-Chanted Forest VHS in December 1988. In late 2007, both this film and its sequel were released on DVD in the countries of former Yugoslavia by Happy TV.
