Heartwarming / The Black Cauldron

  • Eilonwy demands respect from Taran after they escape and he comments that girls wouldn't know anything about swords. Upset, she runs off and cries while leaning against a tree. When he goes to apologize to her, she forgives him and treats him with respect in return.
  • As Taran says that without his sword he's nothing, Eilonwy takes him aside and says this.
    Eilonwy: Look, you are somebody. You must believe in yourself. ...I believe in you.
  • Gurgi jumping into the Cauldron because he doesn't want Taran to die.
    Gurgi: Taran has many friends... Gurgi has no friends.
  • Taran, Eilonwy, and Gurgi hugging at the end.
    • Promptly followed by Gurgi pushing Taran and Eilonwy's heads together to make them kiss.
  • Lloyd Alexander's reaction to the film, that while it bore little resemblance to his books, he still thought it was a quality story in its own right.
