With the help of a smooth talking tomcat, a family of Parisian felines set to inherit a fortune from their owner try to make it back home after a jealous butler kidnaps them and leaves them in the country.
Centuries ago, in the land of Prydain, a young man named Taran is given the task of protecting Hen Wen, a magical oracular pig, who knows the location of the mystical black cauldron. This is not an easy task, for The Evil Horned King will stop at nothing to get the cauldron.Written by
This is the fourth Walt Disney Animation Studios film to not be a musical of characters breaking into songs 3 or more times at random moments after Bambi (1942) (which only had songs sung in the background), One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961) (which was simply a music-musical), and The Rescuers (1977).

When the Witches confront Taran, Eilonwy and Fflam after the Castle is destroyed, they negotiate for the return of the Cauldron in exchange for bringing Gurgi back to life. When they arrived at the Witches house earlier, the Taran and co. didn't know where the Cauldron was, and had to barter for it.

I am sick of the marketing. I am sick of the lame musical numbers. I am sick of talking animals. I am QUITE sick of insulting cultural inaccuracies (think Pocahontas and Mulan). THE BLACK CAULDRON sticks out like a sore thumb in a crop of happy, whimsical garbage that has come out of the Disney studios in the last decade.

Its no wonder that it took so long for this one to make it to video. But I am rather pleased with it. --The SurgeBot
