Legend was written by William Hjortsberg and directed by Ridley Scott. In this film, the Lord of Darkness, played by Tim Curry, wants to rid the world of all its light. He sends his goblins to find and bring to him the horns of the unicorns, so that there will be eternal night. The goblins hide and wait for an opportunity to shoot the innocent unicorns.

They are given an opportunity when Lili, played by Mia Sara, approaches and touches the unicorns even though she is warned not to. When she touches the unicorns all seems fine for the moment, when all of a sudden the poison dart is shot and hits one of the unicorns. The unicorns take off, but one falls, and his horn is taken by the goblin. Jack, played by Tom Cruise, sees the Unicorns run away and immediately blames Lili, because she has touched them.

They seem to not be aware of the change in the environment as Lili challenges Jack her to find a ring that she tosses into the water. Jack accepts the challenge and immediately dives into the deep water. He retrieves the ring, only to be trapped in ice as he resurfaces. When he breaks through the ice, he sees that everything is frozen, and the world looks very different.

Jack searches for Lily, but she has run off. In his attempts to search for Lili, he instead finds the Gump, dwarves and a fairy named Oona. The Gump blames Lili and chastises Jack for what has happened, but together they search for Lili. Lili, who has gone to make things right, has been seduced by the Lord of Darkness. Jack and his friends plot to rescue Lili and save the world from eternal night.
