Pop Goes The Classics – The Black Cauldron (1985)

On the twenty-first installment of the Pop Goes The Classics series looking at the Disney animated features, Mirandia Berthold, Andy Atherton & Steve Riddle look at 1985’s The Black Cauldron. They discuss the many aspects of the film including: the dark and ominous scenes; Hen Wen The Pig’s powers; Gurgi’s character arc; where The Horned King ranks amongst the Disney villains (including his demise); some of the more “adult” jokes that hopefully fly over kids’ heads; the great value Sanderson sisters; the undead army; Creeper, the under-rated henchman & why the film may not get the respect it deserves
