    Well, you really need to read the books instead...

    The movie is cute, but it has the same problem that all the other Disney movies have, THEY COMPLETELY CHANGE THE PLOT!!! I think if I hadn't read the books I would have liked the movie a lot more, because it is kind of cute, but has none of the intensity or character developement that Lloyd Alexander had in his books. Obviously. And what was with Eilonwy not having RED hair?

    the worst adaptation ever

    The books are wonderful. If you liked the books, don't ever force yourself to watch this waste of time. Even as its own movie, it's bad quality. The characters are completely undeveloped and stupid, it mocks mythology, and I have no idea how Lloyd Alexander could refrain from sueing them for ruining his books so badly. I was apprehensive before watching it, and am considering throwing the video out instead of returning it to the library.

    Noted for art over story.

    I've yet to read the books this movie was based on, but from an art perspective, The Black Cauldron was pretty cool. Though it's got some pretty spooky stuff, I think I saw a Halloween short that Disney made in the 70s that had these crazy images of Satan and flaming women dancing naked. So if you can sit through the ok plot, not wet your pants from all the gruesome stuff, and still appreciate the fascinating work done on the background art, spend your lonesome Saturday night with The Black Cauldron.

    It's Awfull!

    If you liked the Prydian Chronicles book series, you.........ARE GOING TO HATE THIS! I know I did. Disney took all three books mashed them together and changed everything but the names. It really is the worst movie I ever saw. Now maybe I'm a little biased because of my love for the series. But even looking at it from another stand point it's still really awfull and contains frightening images that would give a young child nightmares.
