The Black Cauldron is a 1985 American animated Dark Fantasy film set in medieval times, based on The Chronicles of Prydain series by Lloyd Alexander.


Taran, a pig keeper, has his oracular pig Hen wyn stolen by minions of The Horned King. In a bid to save her, he meets Princess Eilonwy, and a sloth-like creature named Gurgi, and disrupts the Horned King's plan to control the world with the fabled Black Cauldron.



Taran/Eilonwy is the only active ship in the fandom that isn't crossover, as it is a canon ship (albeit forced), and none of the other characters in the film are even close to Eilonwy's age.

Eilonwy is occasionally shipped in crossover however, with two well-known examples pairing her with Vanessa from The Little Mermaid, and Merida from Brave
