Synopsis

Taran is a young pig-keeper who dreams of being a hero. One of his pigs, Hen Wen, is psychic and can discover the location of an all-powerful magic cauldron. When Hen Wen is kidnapped by the evil Horned King, Taran is forced to leap into action. He embarks on a mission to find the pig, and to stop the Horned King from using the cauldron to take over the world. Along the way he gathers a motley gang of friends who are keen to help him defeat the Horned King, but as the perils increase Taran is wary of putting his newfound friends in danger. This animated Disney fable is an exciting sword and sorcery adventure.
