Juggling in Movies

The Last Unicorn (1982)

[Animation; voices: Alan Arkin, Jeff Bridges, Mia Farrow, Tammy Grimes]

The last unicorn in the world goes on a quest to discover what has happened to all the others of her kind. The story is part fantasy, part allegory about fairy tales, and part a tale about life itself.

There is a brief and unrealistic juggling bit about two thirds of the way through the movie. Schmendrick juggles sixteen balls in two circles, one inside the other, going in opposite directions. Then, being a wizard, he walks away and leaves the balls juggling themselves. A slightly less unrealistic scene occurs later.
