Help: 80's animated film - name please!

Post by Liamh1982 » Sat Dec 24, 2011 9:22 am

There was a film my brother and I used to rent out from the local newsagent's video section.
All I can remember was that it had a typical 80s fantasy He-Man vibe (good vs evil, monsters, muscles) and throughout the film is a little blind boy, who after the good guys triumph gets his sight back.

When you said blind boy, it reminds me of Starchaser: The Legend of Orin. It also had a smattering of monsters (aliens) in as well.

Thanks for the help - now to Google!

EDIT: Funny how the mind plays tricks - just watched the trailer on YouTube and while I do vaguely remember some of the characters and scenes, I didn't recall it being such a blatant Star Wars rip-off! Mind you, I haven't seen it in 20 years...
