    80's kids movie with FAIRIES or SPRITES in it.

    Asked Feb 4, 2007, 01:30 PM 42 Answers
    Okay I remember renting a movie when I was little and it was about these different types of fairies or sprites that had to flee the forest. I think there were Earth Fairies & some kind of Fire Fairies... Does anybody know what I'm talking about? It all took place in a forest, and its not FernGully that was 90's, kindof like that, maybe that's where they got the idea of FernGully for? Fairies, Forests... anybody? Thanks! :)

    I fear you may be wrong here singlemom7105. Pans Labyrinth, directed by the great Guillermo Del Toro came out in cinemas last year. As far as I'm aware there was never a Pans Labyrinth film released in the 1980s or any other year.

    Thank you for trying to answer that question for me, it's a really tough one. Pan's Labyrinth is a lot more recent and this one I'm searching for is early 80's. If you have any other suggestions let me know! Thanks Mamma!:o

    And De Niro you're right about that- either way I'm super excited to see the outcome of Pan's Labyrinth.

    I'm 20 and from south africa, and have been asking this same question for the last 10 years, been searching the internet for the name recently. I've asked all my friends, but none of them have a clue about what I'm talking about! I don't know if it's the same movie (it was a really ancient copy from our video rental, we probably the only 1s that took it out), but all my sister (24) and I remember about it is, is that there are fairies in a forest and a volkswagen car (beetle - green or yellow) that races through the forest. And that the fairies are also real actors just scaled down.

    Cnt believe I came across this site, so interesting! :)

    Miss Croatia, I too am looking for a movie that I believe was made in the 80's. All I can remember was the main charaters name was Malta and she was a fire fairy and she was in love with a water fairy. Does that sound like the one your searching for. Does that ring a bell to anyone. I would love to know the name

    I think your answer can be found here:

    It should be Sea Prince and the Fire Child.

    Well I also remember this movie from my Childhood, But it was definitely Ferngully...
    But it was only released in 1992... is it possible you are a few years off with the date?
    FernGully: The Last Rainforest - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If not... then try this website, it has a whole list of Fairy movies...
    Faery Movies

    There is one other option - a short movie from 1981
    Faeries 1981: Movie and film review from Answers.com

    Good luck!
