Wizards (1977), a Ralph Bakshi film

Wizards was a film done by Ralph Bakshi. I first found the characters in a magazine that I collected called Heavy Metal. It was a bit far fetched and a little off the wall but I thoroughly enjoyed it in the mag, so I wanted badly to see the film.

I never did get to see the film when it came out though but recently found it on the internet.

This is a paragraph taken from Wiki's page on the film and it shows a little bit how "far off the wall" the characters were. "Earth has been devastated by a nuclear war instigated by five terrorists, and it has taken two million years for the radioactive clouds to once again allow sunlight to reach the surface. Only a handful of humans have survived, while the rest have changed into mutants who roam the radioactive wastelands. In the idyllic land of Montagar, the true ancestors of man — fairies, elves and dwarves — have returned and live in peace. During a celebration of 3,000 years of peace Delia, queen of the fairies, falls into a trance and leaves the party. Puzzled, the fairies follow her to her home and discover that she has given birth to twin wizards. Avatar, a kind and good wizard, spends much of his boyhood entertaining his mother with beautiful visions, while Blackwolf, a mutant, never visits his mother, but spends his time torturing small animals."

Below is the film posted in parts and in one piece full.
