(Screen shows 20th Century Fox logo with no jingle and it fades black. It shows the words like, "FAI Films," "In association with Youngheart Productions," and "A Young and Faiman Production." The title shows, "FernGully: The Last Rainforest" with a flower growing on the side of the F. It turns black and it shows a series of aboriginal paintings.)
Magi Lune: (narrating) Our world was much larger then. The forest went on forever. We tree spirits nurtured the harmony of all living things, but our closest friends were humans. Then, as sometimes happens, the balance of nature shifted, and Hexxus the very spirit of destruction rose up from the bowels of the earth and rained down his poison. The forest was nearly destroyed. Many lives were lost and the humans fled in fear, never to return. Most think they didn't survive. It was only by calling up the magical powers of nature that I was able to trap Hexxus inside an enchanted tree and saved FernGully.
(Magi was done narrating from the art.)
Magi Lune: Which is why it is so important for you to learn to use these powers. I won't be around forever and you'll have to--
(Magi saw Crysta looking outside.)
Magi Lune: Crysta?
Crysta: (looks at Magi) Yes.
Magi Lune: That is why it is so important for you to learn the secrets of--
(The song, "Life Is A Magic Thing" starts from the begining and Crysta looks outside again.)
Magi Lune: (talk quietly) Crysta!
Crysta: Magi, yes. The secrets. I know, uh, but I mean it's all right, now. That was so long ago and you trapped him in that tree and everything's so... (backs up) I really have to go now, but I'll see you later, okay? Bye!
(Crysta flew away outside and she flew through the lake, the trees, and the waterfall. But, the pipe music plays from the nature and she flew right up through the trees. She flew up outside of the forest and she saw Pips.)
(Pips plays his pipes and she flew to the flowers to get one. He continued playing it and she didn't like that noise. Pips tries to play it but Crysta blocked inside his pipes with flowers. He gets the flowers off.)
Pips: You know, you're spending more time with Magi than you do with me.
Crysta: Oh well, what can I learn from you?
(Pips holds her hands and then she flew away.)
(He flew with her around the forest.)

(The beetle boys were getting ready to ride and they flew after Crysta.)
Stump: (yelling for action)
Root: (laugh) Comin' through! Watch out! Here I come!

(Crysta and Pips were flying together and they flew inside the log with holes. The beetle boys returned and they catch up to Crysta and Pips.)
Root: There she goes. Come on, don't lose her.
(Crysta and Pips flew out of the log and they kept flying.)
Root: Whoa, whoa!
(Crysta flew up first and Pips and the beetle boys stopped flying. She looks down and she keeps flying up.)
(Pips and the beetles boys looks up and they saw Crysta.)
Pips: Crysta, stop!
Beetle Boys: Whoa!
(She flew up and she was outside of FernGully. The sun shines and she closed her eyes. She hides behind the leaf, she looks up and she goes outside of FernGully with a leaf. She slowly looked around outside of FernGully. But she saw a volcano and she can still see the volcano. The bird flew far away. Pips and the beetle boys were still looking at Crysta. But they saw a dangerous bird coming.)
Stump: Never, never go above the canopy. Never go above the canpony.
(She looks at Pips far away.)
(She looks at the bird coming.)
(The bird flew after Crysta faster and they were in the forest. The bird flew right to the beetle boys. The beetle boys screams and they were dodged by flying away. The bird was after Crysta and Pips got Crysta. The bird almost got her.)
Pips: I got ya.
(Crysta and Pips hugged each other for protection and they saw the bird flying away. The bird was flying up to go outside of FernGully to stay out.)
Stump: Are you crazy, going above the canopy?!
Root: Yeah, we was almost falcon fodder!
(Crysta was confused and she got am idea.)
Crysta: I've got to tell Magi.
Pips: Tell Magi what?
(Crysta flew away.)
Pips: Hey, wait! Wha-What'd you see... up there?
(Crysta was flying by herself to go see Magi far away and she saw Magi's giant tree. She tries to get there, but Ock and Rock blocks Crysta in the way like a guard.)
Ock: Halt! Who goes there?
Rock: Hi, Crysta!
Ock: Okay, what's the password?
Crysta: Oh, come on, you guys.
Ock: Is that the password? It sounds good.
(Crysta flies to Magi's giant tree.)
Rock: "Bye." That's it! That's the password!
Ock: Well, I don't know if that's the password or not. I'm so confused, you--
(Screen skips into Crysta getting in Magi's beautiful garden and she flies to look for Magi.)
Crysta: Magi? Magi.
(She looks around and she saw Magi beautiful giant flower.)
Crysta: Oh, Magi, I just saw the most incredible thing above the canopy. A whole other world. The sky went on forever. And way over in the distance as far as I could see, there was this enormous rock like a...
Magi Lune: Mountain. That was Mount Warning.
(Magi growing plants with her magic.)
Crysta: And next to it was a...a... I don't know. It looked like a strange black cloud rising out of the earth.
Magi Lune: Smoke, I should think.
Crysta: What's smoke?
Magi Lune: Oh, there are many things in our world you don't yet know about, Crysta.
(Magi grabs the magic seed and does magic with the seed.)
Magi Lune: There are worlds within worlds, Crysta.
(Magi flies with the seed with magic and Crysta follows Magi. The flower grows from Magi's magic.)
Magi Lune: Everything in our world is connected by the delicate strands of the web of life, which is balanced between forces of destruction...
(The tree cracks a little bit and they go on top of the broken tree.)
Magi Lune: ...and the magic forces of creation.
(Magi puts the seed on the broken tree.)
Magi Lune: Help it grow.
(Magi gently puts Crysta's hand on the seed to make it grow. Crysta was worried and she does her magic to make it grow. The vines come out and it gets a little bigger. It hides inside the tree and the vines come out from inside the broken tree.)
Crysta: Why can't I do it?
(Magi helps the broken tree grow with her magic powers, and all the vines touch the inside ground and it attached the broken tree. The small tree grew on top of the fixed tree.)
Magi Lune: Everyone can call on the magic powers of the web of life. You have to find it in yourself.
Crysta: I want to, Magi. You know I do. But I was thinking about that smoke. Do you think it could be... Hexxus?
Magi Lune: No, there isn't a force in nature that could release him, and there are no poisons here on which he can feed. Hexxus is trapped for all time. Now, that's enough for today.
Crysta: But, what could have caused the smoke?
Magi Lune: Now, now, now, off you go.
Crysta: But, Magi--
(Crysta was a little sad and she flew away. Magi saw something happening, but she couldn't see it. She uses her magic to open all of the trees way on the other to see outside. She saw a volcano with black smoke.)
Magi Lune: Hexxus. (looked back and looked forward.)
(Screen skips into the forest, Crysta flew through the pond, she heard Pip's pipe music and flew up to the tree with holes. She went to talk with Pips on the one hole of the tree.)
Pips: So, what'd the Mag have to say, huh?
Crysta: She said I should get serious.
Pips: 'Bout time.
Crysta: Oh, and stop hanging around with bug-brained layabouts like you.
(Batty flew crazy to it the tree.)
Batty Koda: OOOHHH, NOOOO!
(Batty accidentally bumps Pips' tree and Crysta and Pips fell off and they floats outside that see Batty hittng those trees.)
Batty Koda: (bumps one tree) Red light. (bumps another tree) Red light again. Immediate clearance requested! Immediate clearance! OOOHHH, NOOOO!
(Crysta carefully flew after Batty.)
Pips: Where you goin'? Crysta!
(Batty accidentally bumps inside the giant multiple holed tree and the two fairies came out. Crysta goes inside.)
(She heard Batty scream and his noises. She looks up but there's no Batty. She looked down and she saw Batty going crazy by flying. Batty flew up to her and he was going insane and continues yelling. She was scared and she tries to do her first magic.)
Crysta: Bless your heart with magic light. I give the gift of fairy sight.
(Crysta uses her magical powers to calm Batty down and Batty stopped yelling and not going insane. The magic circles around Batty's face. Batty shaked his face and his eyes were swirly. He saw the fairy with his blury eyes and his eyes were clear and clean. He saw the real Crysta and he was clean and quiet. He was very normal now.)
Batty Koda: (sighs) Oh, what a strange little bug.
Crysta: I did it, I did it!
(Batty was begining to fall.)
Batty Koda: Oh! Gravity works.
(Batty fell down and hits it on the ground. Crysta saw Batty being unconsious on the ground, and the fairies saw him too. Crysta flew down to Batty and gently hold Batty's head.)
Crysta: Ohhhh. Poor guy.
(Batty's electric channel turns on and he wakes up. He looks at Crysta.)
Batty Koda: Oh!
(Crysta smiled, and Batty was controlled and he was hyper. He gets up.)
Batty Koda: Primary testing laboratory. (electrified) NNO! Pass the probe. Graduate students all gather forward. (electrified) NO!
Pips: Love the haircut.
Batty Koda: (screams)
Crysta: (to Batty) It's alright. We won't hurt you. (to Pips) He's still a little confused.
Batty Koda: Hello, I'm an nocturnal placental flying mammal, a member of the family of pteropodidae of Ptero-didn't I. (laughing) If you can't tell, (electrified) I'M A BAT! (chuckles) Yes, I am. And they used to call me "Batty," Batty Koda. (to Crysta) Pleased to meet you. (kissed Crysta's hand.) Bonjour.
Ash: And where are you from?
Batty Koda: I just blew in from a biology lab. I'm back, and I'm flappin' free. Let me tell you a story that's all about--

Batty Koda: WHERE?! (crouched) No, no, no, no! (imatating Ricky) Lucy!
Crysta: No, no, there are no humans.
Elder #1: They're long gone.
Elder #2: Vanished
Elder #3: Definitely extict.
Ash: They only exist in stories.
(Batty munches on a fig and burps.)
Batty Koda: Excuse me.
Pips: (annoyed) Oh, charming.
Batty Koda: It's been lovely, but I gotta hoon. ¡Adios, amigos! Ding! Check, please.
(As he walks off, he unknowingly leaves Crysta's Father dangling on the leaf that Batty used as a napkin. The leaf jolts up, with Crysta's Father hanging tight to it, just as Crysta flies up.)
Crysta's Father: Whoa!
Crysta: Oh, Father, do you think it's possible? Could humans still exist?
Crysta's Father: Now, Crysta. Ooh! Don't you think you're a little old to believe in human tales?
Batty Koda: Human tales? Humans don't have tales. They have big, big bottoms that they wear with bad shorts. They walk around going, Hi, Helen!
Crysta: Did you really see humans? Were they at Mount Warning?
Batty Koda: Oh, masses of Homo sapiens. Hey! Where are you going? Yeah, this territory looks kinda familiar. Fabulous dayy in the canopy, isn't it? (Crysta flies off, forcing Batty to catch up with her.) Where do you think you're goin'?
Crysta: Mount Warning.
Batty Koda: I know where I am. I know where I am. Hey! You scared me there. For a minute I thought you said you were going to Mount Warning.
Crysta: Well, I did.
Batty Koda: (panicked) But, there are humans on Mount Warning!
Batty Koda: Fractured fig, fairy bug! Come on! Mount Warning is the last place in the world a little bug like you wants to go. Look at these! You think nature did this? Do you think I put this in to get better reception? No! Humans did this. We should stay here. It's nice here. Come on! You got a great set of wings. Let's just flutter for a while.
Crysta: Batty? Batty. Well, come on!
Batty Koda: My heart! Oh, my heart! I can't go on. Help me! My little wings can't make it.
Crysta: Maybe you should wait here for me.
Batty Koda: This is a fabulous idea. I really think we should fly with that. Only, why don't you stay here with me?
Crysta: It's okay, really. I'll be right back.
Batty Koda: (doubtfully) Why do I not believe you?
(As Crysta checks out the area, the camera zooms through the brush and arrives at a leveled plain of tree stumps, where a massive logging machine stands in the background. It is known as the Leveller, and inside the Leveller, the camera cuts to the cab, where food scraps, old pizza boxes, empty soda cans, torn up candy wrappers, and used cigarette butts litter the control panel. A hand presses a button, causing a camera to focus on a logger.)
Ralph: How're you comin' in your quadrant, Pete?
Pete: All done here.
(Two operators, Tony and Ralph, are in charge of running the Leveller. Ralph presses the next camera button, while Tony relaxingly dunks his donut in his coffee mug and eats his donut.)
Ralph: How 'bout you, Willie?
Willie: Finito, good buddy.
Ralph: How 'bout you, Zak? (He waits a beat, as the camera focuses on an empty wooded area.) Zak? (over the loudspeaker, turning the camera in both directions) Zak? Zak? (shouting) ZAK!
(As Crysta continues exploring, Ralph shouts for Zak's attention. Zak himself, a 16-year old teenage boy, is listening to his walkman until he's forced to turn it off.)
Zak: (annoyed) Yeah, yeah! What's the big deal?
Ralph: (over the loudspeaker) You finished marking those trees yet?
Zak: (annoyed) I'm gettin' to it. Don't have a cow. Sheesh! (Zak gets back to work.)
(Back inside the Leveller's cab, Tony and Ralph start criticizing Zak's laziness.)
Tony: This city kid comes up here for a summer job.
Ralph: He doesn't take it seriously.
Tony: Tell you one thing: That kid don't belong in the woods. (He wolfs down an entire strawberry cake.)
(Meanwhile, Crysta flies to catch up on Zak, who is now standing in front of the large, dead baobab tree; the same tree where Magi Lune and her people locked Hexxus away all those thousands of years ago.)
Zak: Freaky. (A bug flies around Zak's space, which annoys him. He shakes his spray can to focus on it and sprays the bug dead, while Crysta looks on from a leaf.) Gotcha! (However, as he walks away, he has accidentally made a red 'X' on the tree. The spray paint sizzles on the bark.)
Hexxus: (demonic whispering) Hexxus.
(Crysta, however, notices Zak is coming in her direction and flies away to avoid being spotted.)
(Zak bursts his face through the brush.)
Zak: Yah! Huh? Aw, man! (He finally catches Crysta in his hands.)
Crysta: (alarmed) Yah!
(The Leveller has cut down a tree that slowly topples toward Zak's direction.)
Crysta: Look out! (She prepares to use her magic powers.) Bless your eyes with magic light, I give the gift of fairy size... (She accidentally shrinks Zak.) Oh, sight!
(As soon as the tree hits the ground, the two of them wind up on a spider web on the bark. Then, the Leveller grabs the tree with its arms and brings it in toward the grinders. Crysta looks at the impending fate ahead of her, until Batty flies in. He grabs Zak and Crysta with his claws and pulls them away from the grinders.)
Batty Koda: Lift! I need lift!
(Soon, Batty passes through the field of brush trees they first came to earlier.)
Batty Koda: (ranting) "Don't go!" I said. "Bad idea." I said. But would you listen? No. Don't listen to Batty. (He then notices Zak for the first time.) Hmm-mm. Well, what have we here? Shoes! Animals don't wear shoes. (does a take) A human!
Crysta: (alert) A tree!
Batty Koda: Whoa!
(The three of them crash land into the tree, as Crysta falls first but regains her flight. Zak, on the other hand, lands on a branch. Crysta reaches him and looks into his wallet and pocket knife. She looks at his pictures in his wallet with curiosity. Zak then wakes up and thinks that Crysta's ready to jump him.)
Zak: Take anything you want. I won't tell the cops. Huh?
Crysta: Are you all right?
Zak: I'm fine. What is going on here?
Crysta: The monster... it tried to eat you.
Crysta: My friend and I saved you. Oh, Batty. Batty?
Batty Koda: Oh, sonic interference. What a nightmare. I thought I saw a human. Human!
Crysta: That's a human?
Batty Koda: Yes! Kill it! Restrain it! Medicate it! Something! (He puffs up his chest.) Puff up. They hate that.
(Zak sees Batty and believes he's trying to kill Crysta. He pulls out his pocket knife and charges towards Batty, who screams and backs against the tree trunk. Zak slashes his knife, almost reaching Batty's neck.)
Zak: Back! Back! Get back! Don't worry! I've got it scared.
Crysta: No! Stop!
Batty Koda: I have but one claw, but beware.
Crysta: Will you both just calm down?
Both: He tried to kill you! I did not! You did!
Crysta: Hold on! The only thing that tried to kill anybody was that horrible monster in the forest.
Zak: (confused) Monster? What monster?
Crysta: The one that ate the tree. It was terrible.
Zak: Tree? The leveler. Hey, am-am I dead?
Batty Koda: We could fix that for ya.
Zak: Then I must be dreaming.
Zak: Aw, sure. And what are you supposed to be some kind of fairy?
Crysta: Of course I am. What about you? Are you really a human?
Zak: Last time I checked. Listen, fairy, it's been weird, but I'm outta here, this dream is history.
(However, Zak steps on a leaf without warning and falls through the canopy. Luckily, he is able to use the leaf as a surfboard using his feet. He glides through a branch and past a Rough-Scaled snake. He laughs confidently, until his leaf crash-lands on the forest floor, launching Zak to the ground and right in front of a hungry goanna.)
Goanna: Check this out.
Goanna: ♪ I've a basic inclination... ♪
Zak: No, no!
Goanna: ♪ A very primal need. ♪
♪ To inspect the vegetation, ♪
♪ For an egg or centipede. ♪
(Zak climbs up a tree

(The goanna swallows Zak alive, as Crysta and Batty watch him nearby.)
Crysta: No! You can't eat him. He's a human.
(Zak screams and struggles inside the Goanna's mouth.)
Goanna: Uh, what's a human?
Batty Koda: (convincing Goanna) Delicious and nutritious. Tastes just like chicken.
(Crysta flutters down to Goanna.)
Crysta: Wait! He's my friend.
Goanna: Well, any friend of a fairy is a friend of mine. (He spits out Zak for Crysta.)
Crysta: Thanks a lot.
Goanna: Oh, man. You owe me a free dinner after this one. (The goanna then leaves as Crysta checks up on Zak.)
Crysta: Are you okay?
Zak: (screaming) What happened to me?! I-I-I'm three inches tall!
Crysta: Oh. I shrank you.
Zak: You what?
Crysta: Well, it was the most amazing thing. (She walks upside under the tree.) Of course, it's not what the spell is really supposed to do. But Magi Lune will fix you.
Zak: You shrank me?
Crysta: (leans up) Yeah.
Batty Koda: Catches on quick, doesn't he?
Crysta: We better buzz off. It's getting late.
Zak: (angrily) Buzz off? I'm not buzzing anywhere. Now, unshrink me, and I mean now!
Crysta: Well, I guess I could take a bash at it.
Zak: Take a bash?
Crysta: (innocently) Actually, I'm just sort of learning.
Zak: (annoyed, face palming) Great! I've been shrunk by an amateur. I don't believe this. Okay, come on. Bash away.
Crysta: (hassled) Okay! (She lowers her arms, as she recites a spell.) What was done, now undo. Return you to the form that's true.
(Crysta tries using her powers to enlarge Zak back to size, only for Zak to hit his head on a tree branch. His ears then grow to a large size.)
Batty Koda: Oh, oh, oh, big ears. (Zak's ears, nose, and lips extend downward.) Elephant! (Zak's ears shrink, as his lips turn into that of an anteater) No, no, no. Anteater! (Zak's arms grow large as he swings from side to side.) Orangutan! (Crysta keeps using her magic to get Zak's size right.) Okay, okay, let me guess. (Zak's mouth extends into a duckbill-like formation.) A duck! A duck! (Zak's body grows larger, as Zak loses patience.) Oh, it's Darwin's grab bag!
(Crysta stops using her magic to let Zak turn back into normal.)
Crysta: Uh, let me try again.
Batty Koda: (eagerly) Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!
Zak: No, no, no! Thank you, but I think maybe we better go see this Magi. (He extends his arm to shake Crysta's hand.) I'm Zak.
Crysta: I'm Crysta. (She extends her arm to shake Zak's hand, but she obliviously misses it anyway.)
Zak: Nice to meet you.
Crysta: You're going to love FernGully; it's the most beautiful, wonderful place in the forest. Well, come on. Batty can carry you. (She then leads Zak to Ferngully with Batty trailing behind.)
Batty Koda: (doubtfully) Moi? Uh-uh. Not this little mammal. Fly a human? I'd rather suck wax fruit.
(The camera fades from the scene and jump cuts to Hexxus' tree, which is being locked on target by Ralph using the Leveler's camera.)
Ralph: Hey, Ton'?
Ralph: You see Zak anywhere?
Tony: No, his shift's about over. He probably cut out early.
Ralph: That's the problem with the world today. People are lazy.
Tony: I heard that with my bad ear.
(On the camera, the Leveler has its right arm holding the tree in place and brings the saw to cut it down. However, it causes the entire machine to shake, catching Tony by surprise. He stammers in tune with the shaking.)
Tony: What is that?!
Ralph: Hey, Ton', you think the Leveler can handle this baby?
Tony: Sure, the Leveler eats everything.
Ralph: Kinda like you.
(Tony raises the throttle to keep the arms steady and then grabs Ralph by the collar.)
Tony: How many times a day I gotta threaten your life?
(As Tony dumps Ralph back in his seat, the tree has been cut down and is being carried by a series of saw blade conveyors. It then passes through the grinders that strip the tree of its bark. Next, a conveyor belt then carries the tree through a circular saw that cuts the tree in half. Next, the tree halves are cut into sheets of lumber by overhead saw blades. Finally, the sheets of lumber slide down the chute and land in a robotic arm that sets the sheets down on a table. That's when Hexxus emerges from the remains of the tree.)
Hexxus: (demonic whispering) Hexxus.
(He emerges from the pile of sheets as a sludge blob-like being as he slithers on a pipe and kisses it to taste the oil. He slithers up the pipe past the Leveler's machinery as a cloud of steam obscures him. Hexxus keeps climbing and kissing the pipe to taste the oil. He then travels inside an open pipe and closes the hatch. Meanwhile, Batty munches on a fig, while Crysta and Zak get to know each other.)
Crysta: I've got so many things I want to ask you. Like, why have humans returned to the forest? And what was that monster that tried to eat you?
Zak: That wasn't a monster. That was a machine.
Crysta: What's a machine?
Zak: It's a... a thing for cutting down trees.
Crysta: That's terrible.
Zak: Only if you live in a tree.
Crysta: I do live in a tree.
Crysta: You didn't have anything to do with that machine, did you?
Zak: (lying) Uh, what, me? No. No, no. No, of course not. Oops. How could I have anything to do with something that eats trees?
Crysta: Could it come to FernGully?
Zak: Oh, no, no. Of course not. You've got nothing to worry about.
Zak: Because, um, it's trapped.
Crysta: Oh, I know. By those red marks. It can't go past them. Well, they must be magic.
Zak: Yeah! You know, you're pretty smart, fairy.
Crysta: I want to learn magic like yours.
Zak: Yeah? Uh, w-well, here. Come here. (He leads Crysta inside a flower petal, where he strikes a match.)
Crysta: (curiously) What is it?
Zak: It's fire.
Crysta: That's fire? (She burns her hands by accident.) Ow!
(Zak clasps Crysta's hands to heal her injury, which glow a shade of blue. Zak becomes confused yet curious at the sight of this.)
(Meanwhile, as the Leveler continues its rampage of destruction, Hexxus slithers out of an exhaust stack and smacks his lips.)
Hexxus: Mmm, delicious. A first-class smoke. (breathes a plume of smoke) Mother's milk. (He then looks at the Leveler for the first time in over a thousand years.) Oh, what is this delightful thing, and how did I get out of that tree? (He slithers to the front of the machine and extends his neck.) Of course, humans. What wonderful creatures. So clever, so helpful. (The camera pans down to focus on Tony and Ralph who ogle at a pin-up poster. Hexxus brings his neck back and comes up with an idea.) I must take this wonderful human thing to... FernGully!
(As the two friends chill out in the cab, Hexxus grabs their attention over the loudspeaker.)
Hexxus: (over the PA system) New orders, boys: You're going to FernGully, and I want you there by morning.
Tony: (doubtfully) By morning? Oh, I don't know if we can do that.
(The camera cuts inside the air vent, where Hexxus speaks into the loudspeaker.)
Hexxus: You'll just have to work harder, then. Double shifts. No breaks.
Tony: No breaks?
Hexxus: And make sure you got plenty of... oil.
Tony: (presses the intercom button) Roger that. We'll give her the gas.
Ralph: Hey, Ton', you know what this means.
Tony: Yeah. (snickering) Beaucoup overtime. (He then powers up the Leveler with the throttle.)
Hexxus: Oh, what a miraculous device. (snickering) I'm really getting the hang of this. (He slithers deep within the bowels of the machine.) I do believe we are destined to be soul mates. (He slithers onto a pipe and grabs onto a pair of cables.)
Hexxus: ♪ Hit me one time! ♪
♪ Hit me twice! ♪
(As Hexxus grabs onto the cables, his skeleton form appears. Then, the electricity shocks him and turns him into a bodacious, smog-like being as he was before.)
♪ Oh, ah! ♪
♪ Oh, that's rather nice. ♪
♪ Oil and grime, ♪

♪ Slime up above. ♪
(He rises out of the engine room and through another air vent.)
♪ Ooh, you'll love my, ♪
♪ Oh, ah, oh, Toxic love! ♪
(Four different heads of Hexxus appear, as each head eats one another, until the last head of Hexxus is left, cackling, until he burps out a bubble.)
♪ I see the world, ♪
♪ And all the creatures in it. ♪
(Hexxus magically creates a vision of the world and the creatures living in Australia that are sucked into Hexxus' mouth, until he spits them out as goo.)
♪ I suck 'em dry, ♪
♪ And spit 'em out like spinach. ♪
♪ 'Cause greedy human beings, ♪
♪ Will always lend a hand, ♪
♪ With the destruction of this, ♪
♪ Worthless jungle land. ♪
♪ And what a beautiful machine, ♪
♪ They have provided, ♪
♪ To slice a patch of doom, ♪
♪ With my sweet breath to guide it! ♪
♪ Filthy brown acid rain, ♪
♪ Pouring down like egg chow mein, ♪
♪ Slime beneath me, ♪
♪ Mmm, slime up above. ♪
(Hexxus rises up to the Leveler's nuclear reactor. He spins the door lock wheel, opening the chamber door, as he shuffles inside and closes the door.)
♪ Ooh, you'll love my, ♪
♪ Oh, ah, oh, Toxic love! ♪
(The reactor powers up as Hexxus laughs evilly. Outside the Leveler, Hexxus appears out of the exhaust stacks and becomes a towering giant as he looks at his new form. Back at Ferngully, Pips is looking for Crysta.)
Pips: (calling for her) Crysta! Crysta!
(The Beetle Boys zoom up on their beetles.)
Stump: Whoa! Hey!
(Stump shoves his friends back in line with his arm.)
Pips: Any sign of her?
Stump: Let's go back. She's probably just back home havin' dinner.
Root: Yeah, or she's somebody else's dinner. (laughs)
Pips: Look: She's fine. Now, keep looking.
(The Beetle Boys fly through the rainforest to look for Crysta with Pips following behind them.)
Stump: We're looking, we're looking.
Root: Okay, yeah, we're looking.
Knotty: We're looking. What are we looking for?
Root: Look at us look. We're looking.
Stump: Oh, look!
(Pips and the Beetle Boys come across Zak's stereo that he lost recently.)
Root: (curious) Oh, is that what we're looking for?
(Later that night, Crysta rests on a tree mushroom, while Zak leaps onto each mushroom to get to Crysta. The camera pans out to see the full view of the tree mushrooms.)
Zak: This is so incredible!
Crysta: What are the trees like where you live?
Zak: Not like this. I live in a city.
Zak: Yeah, buildings, traffic, roads, lights... a city. Most humans live in cities. There's not many trees there.
Crysta: But how can you live without trees?
Crysta: But If we beat 'em off the walls, then they're still in the air.
Zak: We've got air.
Batty Koda: Yeah, if you don't mind getting all your minerals in one breath. (coughs)
Crysta: Don't you miss talking to the forest?
Zak: Can't say I've actually talked with a forest before.
Crysta: I do all the time.
Zak: What does it say?
Crysta: Well, listen.
(The camera pans through the tree tops, where it catches the variety of animals living in them: A tree lemur, numbat, a pair of possums who embrace each other and then run away from an owl, a gecko, a pair of tree frogs who croak as they off up their chests, a snail who yawns as it slithers up a tree branch, and a flock of butterflies flying past.)
Raffi: ♪ It's raining like magic, ♪
♪ It's falling like starlight, ♪
♪ It's raining like magic, ♪
♪ It's raining life. ♪
♪ The forest is breathing, ♪
♪ And ferns are rejoicing, ♪
♪ The trees are all singing, ♪
♪ Hey, it's raining life! ♪
Chorus: ♪ Raining like magic, ♪
♪ La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, ♪
♪ It's raining life. ♪
(The camera stops back at the mushroom with Crysta and Zak sitting there.)
Zak: So what about you, Crysta? I mean, what do fairies do anyway?
Zak: Yeah, I mean, do you have jobs or anything?
Crysta: What-What's a job?
Zak: Guess that answers that question. Look, um, what do you do all day?
Crysta: Mm, help things grow.
Zak: Yeah? That sounds cool.
Crysta: No. Usually, it's warm.
Zak: No, no. Cool means hot.
Zak: Yeah. You know... bodacious, bad, tubular.
Batty Koda: (sarcastically) Awesome use of the language, dude.
Zak: As in, You are one bodacious babe.
Crysta: And that's good. I mean cool.
Zak: Yeah. We're communicating now.
Crysta: What are you doing?
Zak: Carving your name. See? C-R-Y-S...
Crysta: No, no, you mustn't do that. Here. Can't you feel its pain?
Zak: Its pain?
Batty Koda: Humans can't feel anything, they're numb from the brain down.
Crysta: Oh, Zak. (to Batty Koda) He doesn't understand.
Zak: Did I say something wrong? So, uh, which way to FernGully?
Zak: Isn't this great? Wow! What is this place?
Crysta: This is FernGully.
(However, their boat passes over a waterfall, leaving Crysta hovering in mid-air with her wings and Zak falling down the waterfall, until a hand catches Zak's arm, as the hand belongs to Stump.)
Stump: Hey, Crysta, what's this?
Crysta: Careful, Stump. He's a human.
(Knotty tickles Zak's belly with his long tongue.)
Root: Hey, hey! How does it taste?
(Knotty then blows a raspberry, and Zak falls into the mouth of Root, who munches on Zak's hair and paws on his head, making Zak uncomfortable.)
Stump: (confused) A hoo-man? (He shifts his lower jaw and bulges his eyes.)
Knotty: Is this what we're lookin' for?
Zak: Let go of me!
Stump: (shouting unintelligibly)
(The Beetle Boys take him to Ferngully.)
Crysta: Hey, that's my human!
(Fortunately, Zak escapes them by grabbing on a vine. He does a somersault and lands on the ground, dusting off his arm. Batty then swoops in.)
Batty Koda: Oh, no! (He crashes into a tree root and falls down, believing he's blind.) I'm blind! Oh, no! (waits a beat) I can see! It's a miracle! Another perfect landing. No worries. I'm okay. Thank you for caring. (A couple of fairy kids pass him by.) It's just a few bruises. (becomes sad) Nobody cares about me.
Zak: I do, bat man.
Batty Koda: You sure?
Zak: I'm positive.
Batty Koda: (doubtful) Only fools are positive.
Zak: Are you sure?
Batty Koda: I'm positive. (waits another beat) I fell for it! I should have known!
Crysta: Come on, Zak! (grabs Zak)
Crysta's Father: Crysta, we were so worried about... What's that?
Crysta: Father, I'd like you to meet Zak.
Crysta: He's a bodacious babe.
Crysta's Father: A what?
Crysta: He's a human!
Crysta's Father: Somehow I thought they'd be bigger.
Crysta: Well, I had a little accident, and he sort of shrank. But just think, humans back in the forest.
Batty Koda: Yep, there goes the neighborhood.
Crysta: Be nice, Batty.
Batty Koda: First thing, all these trees go. Then come your highways, then come your shopping malls and your parking lots and your convenience stores, and then come... Price check on prune juice, Bob. Price check on prune juice.
Pips: Crysta! Where have you been? I've been looking all over for ya.
Crysta: Pips, you won't believe what I found. Isn't he amazing?
Zak: Shouldn't we be charging admission for this?
Pips: That's all you've got to say? I've been out all night, and you want to show me this weird creature here?
Crysta: This weird creature is a human.
Pips: Hmm. He's kinda small, ain't he?
All: Look out!
Crysta's Father: Uh, Pips, why don't you tell us about your strange treasure?
Pips: Oh. Well, it's simple, really. It's hard like stone, yet, uh... yet it's hollow. And, uh, yeah, it has this, uh, it has this little vine coming out of it and... and...
Zak: It's my stereo.
Pips: Look, I found it, so I'll explain it, all right?
Zak: Okay. Then what is it?
Pips: Well, it's obviously, um...
Pips: Obviously, it's, uh...
Zak: Where are you going?
Crysta's Father: It's alive!
Fairy 1: And it's noisy!
Zak: It's a recording of music.
Crysta's Father: Well, I don't know what a recording is, but I know what music is, and that is not music.

Pips: Hey! (slams Zak into Stump) Come with me and the boys! We'll give you a taste of real FernGully wildlife. Unless, of course, you're not up to it, Zap.
Zak: (brushes Pips aside) I'm up to anything you can dish out, bud.
(Stump grabs Zak by the shoulders and throws him into the air, where Zak lands on Knotty's beetle. Just as Knotty takes Zak for a ride, Crysta stops him in his tracks.)
Crysta: Not now, Pips.
Root: (bummed out) Nuts!
Crysta: Come on, Zak.
(Crysta takes Zak somewhere private.)
Knotty: Hey! Hey, where they goin'?
Pips: (jealously) See you around, Zag.
(By now, Crysta has taken Zak behind the tree to a small pond underneath the tree's roots.)
Zak: (amazed) Wow.
(Zak, with his shoes off, dives headfirst into the water, followed by Crysta, who does a somersault with her wings and dives in as well. Next, they swim underwater, where Crysta leads Zak to a small underground cave with small ponds throughout. Then, they start chasing each other for fun.)

(After their swim is over, Zak and Crysta are back outside.)
Crysta: Well, I guess I better go find Magi and get you unshrunk.
Zak: There's no hurry.
Crysta: No, I promised.
Zak: Let it wait 'til tomorrow. Come here.
Crysta: No, I've got to tell her about you anyway. Wait here. I'll be back as soon as I can find her.
(Zak attempts to catch up with her until he puts his hand on one spot of the bark and feels the tree's pain at last.)
Crysta's Voice: Can't you feel its pain?
(Zak then sees two dead leaves fall to the forest floor and then puts his hand in a muddy area of the water. He pulls his hand back out and looks at a splotch of oil mixed with the water.)
Zak: Oil. (He comes to the truth) The leveler. Oh, no.
(Hexxus is on his rampage of destruction, as dozens of birds and animals run for their lives from the Leveler. A salamander looks at the Leveler's spiked treads and resumes running.)
Hexxus: (cackling) Run, little ones. We'll catch up to you in FernGully soon enough. (continues cackling)
(One of the Leveler's blades slices through the bark where Zak almost put Crysta's name in full. Meanwhile, Crysta is back at Magi Lune's home and explains her adventure to Magi.)
Crysta: Magi? Magi! Oh, Magi, I've got so much to tell you. I went to Mount Warning, and I found a human. Well, come on. I want you to meet him. (notices Magi's grave expression) Magi, what's wrong? Magi, can you heal it?
Magi Lune: A force outside of nature did this. I can't heal it, and I can't stop it.
Crysta: Zak can. I know what did this, Magi. A monster the humans fight. Humans can stop it. They have these magic red marks that... (Magi doesn't speak.) Zak said...
(Magi nods her head no, forcing Crysta to figure out Magi's claim. She flies out of Magi's home and sees a vast field of leveled trees. Her expression changes from astonishment to horror as she sees a logger adjust the strap securing a load of felled trees on a truck.)
Crysta: (sadly) Humans did it. Humans did it all.
(Back at the Fairies' tree, Zak is trying to find Crysta.)
(Pips corners Zak, followed by Crysta's father and the rest of the fairy clan.)
Pips: Hey, what's goin' on, Zak?
Zak: What are you talkin' about?
Pips: You know exactly what I'm talkin' about the forest. You know what's happening, don't you?
Crysta's Father: Good idea. Ask the human. He may know.
(Crysta appears in front of Zak and stares at him with betrayal.)
Zak: Uh, Crysta...
Crysta: (hurtfully) You lied to me!
Zak: I... Crysta... (Crysta flies off, forcing Zak to tell the truth.) I wish... I wish the human tales were true. They're not here to protect the forest. They're cutting down trees. They're destroying the forest. And I was helping them do it. Batty was right.
Batty Koda: (softly) I was?
Zak: They're coming this way. You can't stop them. You'll have to leave.
Magi Lune: The humans have released Hexxus. Gather everyone in the circle.
(Magi Lune leads her people back inside their tree, leaving Zak behind. Only Batty is here to comfort him.)
Batty Koda: (wisely) You know, Zak, truth doesn't always win friends, but it certainly influences people. (Zak hangs his head in shame.) You're not half bad for a hominid.
(Back inside the tree, Crysta is resting in a hole and sobbing over Zak's lie. Her father catches up with her.)
Magi Lune: Since the beginning of time,
Crysta: Oh, Father.
Magi Lune: We have been the guardians and the healers of the forest. We have too long forgotten the magic powers of nature. The time has come to call on them again. Remember: All the magic of creation exists within a single tiny seed.
Crysta: We must go to Magi.
Magi Lune: Look for the hero inside yourself, Crysta. Look to the good and loving heart in you and all others. For just as every seed holds the power and magic of creation, so, too, do you and every other creature in this world.
Crysta: Magi, don't leave me.
Magi Lune: I love you. I'll always be with you. We all have a power, and it grows when it is shared. Remember what you've learned, Crysta. (She then passes away and disintegrates into thin air.)
Crysta: Oh, Magi.
(Just then, a burst of sparks appear. A tree is then cut and is pulled away by the Leveler, where Hexxus stares down from his perch on the cab.)
Hexxus: (laughing evilly) I'm back!
Zak: (shouting) Tony, Ralph, stop! (Tony and Ralph can't hear him, as they mind their own business without Zak's warning.) Come on! Let go! Hey, it's safer in here.
Hexxus: Coming through! A fairy fortification!
Zak: Crysta! Come on. We gotta get everyone out of here.
Crysta: We can't. We've got nowhere else to go. This is our home, Zak.
(Zak then runs off to stop the Leveler.)
Zak: Huh? (He then sees a massive tread coming toward him, until Batty saves him from certain death.)
Batty Koda: This is the last time I save you, human.
Zak: No! No, Batty. Batty, take me back to the leveler.
Batty Koda: Are you crazy? That's lemming talk.
Zak: Wrong channel!
Batty Koda: (as Julius) O Caesar, Emperor of Rome...
Zak: Wrong channel!
Batty Koda: (as John Wayne) Well, all right, gummy. We're goin' to war.
Zak: Yes, that's it! Back to the cab! Batty, let's go!
(Zak and Batty fly to the Leveler, whooping all the way. Batty then flies over the roof of the machine.)
Batty Koda: (as John Lennon) Fasten your seat belts. It's gonna be a bumpy night. (imitating Star Wars) We're goin' in full throttle. That oughta keep those rebel fighters off our tail. (flying past the cab) Lock and load, gentlemen! Time to rock and roll! (He mistakenly swoops above the chain blade conveyors.) Tora, tora, tora!
Zak: (correcting Batty) No, no, no! Batty, to the cab! To the cab!
Batty Koda: (swooping up) Bogey, bogey! Bogey at 3:00! Red Leader! Red Leader!
(Tony and Ralph catch a glimpse of Batty and Zak flying in front of the windshield.)
Ralph: Did you see that? It looked like some kind of flying rat.
Batty Koda: (as Scotty from Star Trek) Aye, aye, Captain. I can't get enough speed. We got no dilithium crystals!
(Hexxus sees the two friends up close and knocks some parts and a search light off the roof to kill Batty.)
Batty Koda: Aah! No!
Zak: Batty, watch out!
Batty Koda: Oh, this is gonna hurt. (gets hit by the searchlight) Oh, no!
Zak: No! Aah!
(He lands on the Leveler's windshield, sliding down. Ralph catches a glimpse of him.)
Ralph: Hey, Ton', there's a little man on the windshield here.
Zak: (shouting) Tony, Ralph, it's me! It's Zak!
Ralph: Hey, Ton'...
(Hexxus looms in, catching Tony and Ralph by surprise.)
Hexxus: Keep it moving, boys!
Both: (panicking) AAAAHHHH!!!!
(Tony and Ralph bolt away from the cab and run for their lives. Zak loses his balance on the windshield and makes a leap for the door handle. Just as he is losing is grip and is ready to fall, Pips comes to Zak's rescue as he grabs his hand and helps him up.)
Pips: You need a set of your own wings. (The two friends stand on the window, as Zak looks at the key in the ignition ahead.) Here's your first flyin' lesson, Zak. (He throws Zak inside.)
Zak: Thanks! (Zak lands in Tony's coffee mug.)
Hexxus: I should've sprayed for pests. Mmm. Lovely wings. So easily detached. (Hexxus flicks Crysta down onto the Leveler's left robotic arm's joint plate. He then brings the machine's left arm to secure Old High Rise into place and brings the right chainsaw to cut it down.) Yes!
(The fairies and animals cower in fear, as Hexxus slides his finger, symbolizing the death of Ferngully. Just as all hope is lost, Zak wastes no time as he runs across the Leveler's dash board and throttle levers. Pips watches him, as Zak finally grips on the Leveler's key and turns off the ignition, shutting down the Leveler. Hexxus becomes shocked, as the animals and fairies become surprised.)
Hexxus: (gasping for air) What happened to the energy?
(Tony and Ralph have run to a tree stump in another part of the forest for safety, as they look around in surprise. All the while, Hexxus sucks on the exhaust stacks, but he is then pulled into the Leveler, with a few thin wisps of smoke vanishing into thin air. As the commotion settles down, everyone cheers for their home being saved. Crysta looks at Zak, who gives her two thumbs up. Just when it seems that Zak has saved the day, the earth rumbles, shattering the windshield and knocking Zak over. On top of the cab, a burst of flames appear, and rising from the top is Hexxus in a skeletal-form made of lava, sludge, and fire. He cackles menacingly at the faires, until Crysta picks up a tree seed.)
Magi Lune: (voiceover) All the magic of creation exists within a single, tiny seed.
(Crysta realizes what must be done: She then flies into Hexxus' mouth, where he swallows her whole. This shocks Zak, the animals, and the fairy clan.)
All: No! No!
(Before Hexxus can destroy Old High Rise again, a stem appears above his skull. He feels a sharp pain and tears off the stem. Unfortunately, several more stems appear out of his arms, forcing Hexxus to desperately tear them off as best as he can. The fairies then frown in a war-like feeling, as Pips flies out of the tree.)
Pips: (confidently) Come on! Help it grow! Come on, guys!
(He leads the entire fairy clan out of the tree to help the seed grow.)
Zak: Come on!
Pips: Let's go! Follow me!
(The fairies waste no time, as they use their powers to help a new tree grow. Zak climbs down the ladder for safety. The roots of the tree burst through the spiked treads and tear off a portion of the ladder. Fortunately, Zak slides down a vine that slithers to the ground. The fairies use their powers, as the massive tree takes shape. Hexxus looks at them one last time, before he is sealed away for good inside the trunk. Their work is done, and all of Ferngully is saved. Later, as a blue sky hangs above the canopy, they notice that Crysta is gone.)
Fairy 1: Oh, Crysta's gone.
(To their surprise, a flower grows.)
Fairy 2: Oh, look!
(Crysta, the heroine who sacrificed her life, flies out of the flower and comes alive again. She then hugs Zak, as the crowd cheers happily.)
Crysta: We did it, Zak. Now Hexxus can never harm FernGully again.
Zak: But humans still could. That's why I have to go back. There's a part of me that really wants to stay.
Crysta: There's a part of you that will always stay. Remember, Zak. Remember everything.
Zak: Keep the stereo, dude.
Pips: Thanks, dude.
Root: Hey, he's not going already?
Stump: He was a nice guy. He just needed wings.
Crysta: What was done, now undo. Return you to the form that's true. Good-bye, Zak.
Zak: Oh. Batty.
Batty Koda: I've shrunk!
Ralph: What happened here?
Zak: I will remember. Guys, things have gotta change.
Magi Lune: Crysta, help it grow.
Batty Koda: Hey! Where are you going?
