The Black Cauldron Coloring Pages
On the little farm of Caer Dallben, Taran, is an supporter Pigkeeper (to the enchanter Dallben), with boylike dreams of turning into a big warrior. However, he has to put the daydreaming aside when his charge, an oracular pig named Hen Wen, is kidnaped by an evil lord called the Horned King. The villain hopes Hen will show him the way to The Black Cauldron, which has the power to create a monster army of unstoppable warriors from the dead, (known as “The Cauldron Born”). With the aid of the stubborn-yet-lovable Princess Eilonwy, an exaggerating middle-aged bard named Fflewddur Fflam, and a pestering but ultimately loyal creature called Gurgi, Taran tries to save the world of Prydain from the Horned King. As the new friends face witches, elves, magic swords, and the Cauldron itself, Taran starts to learn what being a hero really means and that some things are more important than glory.
The Black Cauldron (also known as Taran and the Magic Cauldron in some countries) is the 25th animated characteristic in the Disney animated features canon. It was produced by Walt Disney Productions, and originally released to theatres on July 24, 1985 by Walt Disney Pictures and Buena Vista Distribution. It is based on Lloyd Alexander’s Chronicles of Prydain book serial publication.
Legend has it, in the mystic land of Prydain, there was once a king so cruel and so evil that even the gods feared him. Since no prison could hold him, he was thrown alive into a crucible of molten iron. There his demonic spirit was captured in the form of a great, black cauldron. For uncounted centuries, the black cauldron lay hidden, waiting, while evil men searched for it, knowing whoever possessed it would have the power to resurrect an army of deathless warriors… and with them, rule the world.
