The film that almost killed Disney.
This week, we welcome in special guest Pat Gessner of 106.1 WBLI and The Shred Shack to review and discuss 1985's "The Black Cauldron". This controversial film was deemed too scary for children at the time of its release, while losing the company tens of millions of dollars and nearly ending Walt Disney animation as we know it. What went wrong? Does the film translate better to today's audience? Should it be re-made? All of this and more this week on Monoreel Radio.
