** Allegations about what Disney considered doing with the film in the 13 years of its reported shelving have circulated on the internet, but with very little evidence. One rumor (which as of May 2016, has not been proven) claims it was because of ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' that Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo didn't release it on home media sooner. Disney was all set to release it when the latter film became a smash hit and they were pressured to get it on video ASAP. Another allegation was that Disney planned to reissue it in American theaters under a new title, ''Taran and the Magic Cauldron''. Because this movie was both atypical and unpopular, it wasn't released to video in North America until 1998 as one of the last installments in the WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyMasterpieceCollection. Even later, ''The Black Cauldron'' would become the Canon's last traditionally-animated movie, aside from some 1940s package films, to receive a Blu-ray release. %%DO NOT list a Blu-Ray release date, even a rumored one, unless Disney actually confirms it!

** Overlaps with NoExportForYou: ''The Black Cauldron'' has never been released or dubbed in Hungary, Turkey, Israel, or Thailand (though that may also be for content reasons, as those countries do treat animated pieces like children's fare).

Added DiffLines:

* This movie is the reason that the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon exists. Prior to 1985 the Disney animated film lineup was more or less free-floating, with the 1940s package films sometimes being counted, the live action/animation hybrid films sometimes being counted, the documentaries with animated segments sometimes being counted, etc. This films release however was intended to be a landmark for Disney animation, and necessitated a label that was fitting for such an event; and so, shortly before ''Cauldron'''s release Disney finally set an official lineup for their animated movies in order to name this one their 25th feature.
