Synopsis

Disney’s 25th full-lenth animated classic, "The Black Cauldron," is a heroic adventure that fills the screen with magic and wonder. Overflowing with colorful characters, trailblazing animation, and nonstop action, this critically acclaimed film can be enjoyed again and again.

In the mystical land of Prydain, a young boy named Taran, who dreams of a future as an invincible warrior, finds himself leading a real-life quest. In a race against the evil Horned King, Taran must be the first to find the mysterious Black Cauldron -- or the Horned King will unleash its power and take over the world. With the help of a magic sword, an enchanting princess, an adorable clairvoyant pig, and a funny little furry creature named Gurgi, Taran overcomes winged dragons, the King’s monstrous henchmen, three batty witches, and more -- and learns nothing is as powerful as courage and friendship.
