** It was because of ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' that Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo didn't release it on home media sooner -- according to the [=IMDb=], 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 (which they did that May, and under their special ''WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyClassics'' label, a first for the studio). 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.

** Maybe not so much now. The movie received a digitally restored DVD rerelease during its 25th anniversary, which even got promoted on some higher-profile [=DVDs=].

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.
