The Black Cauldron (1985) – 2.5/5

The Black Cauldron (1985)

Interesting b/c of it’s position and place in Disney history. Also, the animation was good and interesting techniques at times.

But I think the Disney animation department was a bit scattered and schismed at the time and it shows. The story is a bit spotty at times and the characters, to me, aren’t very sympathetic.

There’s some witches and a magic sword and several references the Horned King’s war and army and such, but none of them are really explained.

It has some influences from Lord of the Rings, I think.

Haiku Summary
Cauldron holds power.
Horned king wants it, boy must stop.
Witches, fights. We win!
