The Black Cauldron is a 1985 American animated dark fantasy adventure film produced by Walt Disney Pictures in association with Silver Screen Partners II. The 25th Disney animated feature film, it is loosely based on the first two books in The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander, a series of five novels that are, in turn, based on Welsh mythology.

Set in the mythical land of Prydain during the dark ages, the film centers on the evil Horned King who hopes to secure an ancient magical cauldron that will aid him in his desire to conquer the world. He is opposed by a young pig keeper named Taran, the young princess Eilonwy, the bard Fflewddur Fflam, and a wild creature named Gurgi who seek to destroy the cauldron, to prevent the Horned King from ruling the world.

Phil Nibbelink of The Black Cauldron (1985) (voice of Henchmen, character designer, character animator).

Phil Nibbelink is an American animator and film director as well as comic book writer and illustrator. Nibbelink worked for ten years at Disney and was a directing animator on Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Then he spent ten years working under Steven Spielberg as an animation director, working on films such as An American Tail: Fievel Goes West (which he directed) and Casper as animation director. He also directed an animated adaptation of the children’s book We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story for Amblimation. He was working with Dick Zondag (who co-directed We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story) and the upcoming movie, Cats, when it was cancelled due to the closing of the Amblimation studio in London.

Nibbelink later turned his attention to independent filmmaking, cranking out not one but three full-length animated features single-handedly. These films would include Puss in Boots (1999) and Romeo & Juliet: Sealed with a Kiss (2006). He is the founder and owner of his company, Phil Nibbelink Productions. His most recent project is as storyboard artist on Wolverine and the X-Men.
