Wonderful making of the Peter S Beagle book. The it is bittersweet quest story full of longing. Beagle has done a great job of writing a story, characters, and dialogue that are clever and can be experienced as light enough for a toddler or deep enough for a philosopher. There are themes of self identity, belonging, mortality, what it is to be known by yourself or others, growing up or transforming, what it is that makes anything true or real, love, regret, true sight vs illusions. You could even draw lots of comparisons to Christianity. There is no pat happy ending, and I love that. I hate closed structures and love infinite queries. It's just an entertaining cartoon, but, you could also mine it for its profound explorations infinitely. The soundtrack by America is one of the best.
