Early Black Cauldron Background

I remember a variety of visual BG development for The Black Cauldron. This beautiful Bg is by Ron Dias. It represent a throwback to old classic Disney, very romantic, and also well executed.
Gosh, you wonder what this movie could have been.
To me the film's problems lie within the insufficient story telling as well as often lackluster character animation
Fortunately better movies would follow, and eventually we were on a roll with animated films that resonated with modern audiences.

Yet, I do love this Dias BG.


  1. Do you think it's difficult to pull out a painting with two light sources?

  2. I've read that author Christopher Finch considers the backgrounds in BLACK CAULDRON "the best since THE JUNGLE BOOK."

  3. That background is just beautiful. Looks like something out of Snow White.

  4. Beyond being beautiful
    I felt like I was in the room

  5. beautiful BG! la première fois que j'ai vu "black Cauldron" en 1985 en 1985 j'étais surpris par la baisse de qualité générale.l'histoire trop sombre et sinistre etc...Aujourd'hui il n'a pas trop mal vieilli et je suis bien plus indulgent.Ce n'est pas un grand Disney .
