Voyage of the Unicorn is a 2001 television film starring Beau Bridges, Chantal Conlin and Heather McEwen. The movie is based on James C. Christensen's book Voyage of the Basset. It is featured on TV1000 channel. Directed by noted fantasy/action director Philip Spink.


Dr. Alan Aisling is an antiquities professor who has lost his wife and struggles to keep his daughters' spirits high and his loneliness at bay. His younger daughter Cassie daydreams about the mythical world her illustrator mother left behind in her drawings and annoys her older sister Miranda.

Then something magical happens: The family find themselves fleeing a plague of monstrous trolls by boarding a mysterious ship called The Unicorn. They are given a quest to find the benevolent dragon that once ruled the legendary faerie isles, before the demon trolls arrived.

They partake of the quest that shows them the wonder of the mythological worlds: Fire-breathing dragons, the mermaids' siren songs and the Minotaur's labyrinth, and try to re-ignite an enthusiasm for life within the family.



This movie was released on a DVD with the TV movie "The Old Curiosity Shop" (starring Sir Peter Ustinov) in 2007. It was considered an "extra".

Both parts were released by Hallmark Entertainment as a single stand-alone feature on VHS.
