Unico in the Island of Magic is a 1983 animated feature film based on the Unico manga by Osamu Tezuka. The film is the second to be based on the character (the first being The Fantastic Adventures of Unico) and, like its predecessor, was created by Sanrio and Tezuka Productions with animation by Madhouse.

In this film, Unico meets a kind-hearted young girl named Cheri whose older brother, Toby, is working for the evil Lord Kuruku. Kuruku, a very powerful demonic entity, plans to turn all living creatures, animals and people alike, into unusual zombie-like beings called "Living Puppets" to be his slaves. It's up to Unico and Cheri to stop Kuruku and save everyone from his wicked magic.

Like The Fantastic Adventures of Unico, the film was dubbed into English and shown on the Disney Channel during the eighties.
