Fantasy, magic, and fun are all brewed together in Disney's legendary adventure The Black Cauldron. Whoever releases the mysterious Black Cauldron's power will be invincible!

With a motley team of the brave Princess Eilonwy, a minstrel named Fflewddur Fflam and Hen Wen, a remarkable pig who can predict the future, Taran embarks on a quest to stop the Black Cauldron's evil once and for all. Will he have the courage to succeed?




  • Great. Way underrated!

    Good film. I liked how it was not your typical Disney animated film for kids. But for teens/adults too. Some nice visuals. The Horned King was cool. This film is way underrated. It deserves more respect.

    Criminally underrated ! One of the few that deserve a live action remake.
  • Awesome!! Great Disney movie and should be appreciated!

    I am in love with this movie! The colors the characters and omg...there’s a Princess in it! I think Eilonwy is inspiring. She’s one of Disney’s first strong princesses and I love it when she says “ Girl? GIRL? If I weren’t for this “girl” you would still be in the dungeon”. I love that. She has a princess style and should be a appreciated. The only thing that annoys me is gurgi. He’s Kinda annoying. I also love the horned king. He’s an awesome villain and I love his chill voice. If anyone thinks this is scary I saw this when I was young and I wasn’t scared so ha. And to basketballdog im not going to say you were so right because I love this movie and yes of coures one can change my opinion. One of my favorite Disney classics
  • Love it

    I know this movie bombed at the box office, but I thought it was a decent flick. The animation is nice and sometimes colorful, and the characters seemed ok. I loved the whole idea of the horned king. That was pretty imaginative.

    Fflewddur Fflam is a young, handsome, king with spiked up blonde hair. But in this he is as old as my grandpa. It didn't even include one of the main characers from the book. READ THE BOOK!
  • My favorite movie

    By RhinoRobb08
    I have the book and I’m happy with the movie but I do wish that Disney went into more detail with the characters.
  • Blahhhh

    Bad movie Others:oh this movie was so terribly neglected Me:this is the worst Disney movie ever and Walt Disney Studios agrees This movie was a flop,in both my opinion AND the box office. It got beaten out by THE CARE BEARS MOVIE!!(which i have seen and liked) Its also very dark and scary. If u want to see this crap,go ahead. Just dont go all "u were so right!!" to me. But i respect yalls opinions. To moi,this movie is dog poop!!!!!!!
