Talk about forgotten Disney movies.
This movie came out in 1985. It's animated, but unlike other animated Disney movies there's no singing. The score was written by Elmer Bernstein (who's name you aught to know.)
This movie supplies us with the most terrifying Disney villain ever. I know, we all love Maleficent and her curse words, but The Horned King is absolutely terrifying. His goal is to create a dead-ite army, (through the power of the black cauldron,) but he faces some major obstacles, namely a pig keeper (Taran,) a pig that can see the future (Hen Wen,) a princess (Eilonwy,) and bard (Fflewddur,) some shady witches, a little pond-fairy-thing (Doli,) and an oddly charming while horribly annoying little furry-fuzz-ball named Gurgi, (played by John Byner who also does the voice for Doli.)
The movie is based on a novel from the series The Chronicles of Prydain, by Lloyd Alexander.
This movie had a wide capacity for failure, but thanks to Disney animators and sheer awesomeness, this movie is marvelous. If you haven't seen it, you're missing out. It's really quite dark, but that's why we like it.
And take this moment to practice your Gurgi impersonation. It's a great party trick. Impress your friends! Try it today.
