Excellent animated classic.
I first saw this movie when I was a kid (probably 7 or 8) and I loved it. After that I didn’t know what happened to it. Then last year (or so) it appeared on video. Naturally I snapped it up.
Well? Had the years been kind? Somewhat. Of course the build-up I had given it could never have been lived up to, but I enjoyed it. Watching it again, without the preconceptions, I thought it was wonderful. Maybe not as good as I thought as a kid, but still great.
Sure, some of the animation isn’t as polished and crisp as the likes of ‘The Little Mermaid’ or ‘Beauty and the Beast’ (2 of my favorites) but it still looks great (especially the cauldron scenes near the end). And the team didn’t feel the need to squeeze songs in where they would have been unwelcome. There are NO songs in this movie.
Overall, I can see why some people don’t like it, but that’s surely true of any movie. This is an atypical Disney release, but a classic. One of my favorites.
The Once Long-Lost, Disney Animated Feature.
I remember first seeing this title on the back covers of the few Disney classics series books by Mouse Works Books that I had owned when I was little/younger. And every time I went to rent a movie or some movies, I used to wonder why it still had yet to be released on VHS. But I’d find out, learn more and see why years later, after reading about the history/back-story behind it.
So after it finally first had a VHS release over a decade later as part of the Masterpiece Collection series, I continued showing interest and curiosity in it, bought a copy (except in my case, it was the edition that was part of the Gold Collection) and saw what I just had to see. Having gotten to view it for myself at last, I enjoyed it, although I never read the original books in the Prydain Chronicles series (nor did I know this was even another, full-on, Disney adaptation at the time). And despite what some nay-sayers here may have typed about it, I believe in and can take it for what it is, regardless of whatever changes are made and differences there are from the books, because it wouldn’t really be much of an adaptation nor could one truly call it that if it followed the original source as it is, that’s how I look at and think of it except for maybe depending on what was changed, and to what degree.
Anyway, I like how it stood out from most other, Disney animated films that were the norm at the time and it was groundbreaking in a sense, but at the cost of being a win-lose situation: On the one hand, it attracted some teen audiences as it was intended. But on the other hand, this decisive move caused it to tank at the box office, due to its somewhat controversial nature of the dark and violent content, which drove away parents and the very young/little kids, since that wasn’t what they were expecting. That explained it all to me a lot and cleared things up for me as to the mystery behind the delay of its release on home media . Since I’m sure others have covered what it’s about, I’ll just say that one of my favorite parts is with the Fair Folk, who I love. It’s no wonder The Black Cauldron has hardly ever been brought up by the studio/company and why it’s one of the least referenced. It had more violent and graphic parts that didn’t make the final cut. However, even though it was toned down somewhat, that apparently still wasn’t enough nor satisfying for some. Having typed that, I’d recommend this for children as well as older viewers, solely if the parents believe that the youngsters are valiant and mature enough to handle those moments. There’s nothing tedious or boring about TBC, as it’s an action-packed fantasy/adventure/medieval times flick that should keep any of y’all on the edge of your seats. If it doesn’t thrill y’all, then I’m sorry to say there must be something wrong if anybody can’t feel it. And it’s one of the few fantasies I ever got into trying. Not for anyone who is faint of heart.
