I had seen documentaries mention The Black Cauldron tons of times. I went into watching this remembering that the 1980s was where the mythical adventure stories were huge. Mainly, titles like Dungeons and Dragons and The Lord of the Rings cartoon were big. Disney really wanted to tap into this market with this movie.
I think if I saw this as a kid, definitely would have been freaked out by it. There were a lot of intense scenes and the movie was still a bit intense as an adult! I’m surprised there wasn’t a warning about the flashing lights for the lightning or powerful scenes. My eyes hurt and had to look away when that happened. Ouch.
Overall, it was okay though. I don’t know if I really would re-watch it on my own. This would be a re-watch if someone else wanted to see it.
