Hidden by darkness. Guarded by witches. Discovered by a boy. Stolen by a king. Whoever owns it will rule the world. Or destroy it.
Trivia:
The first Disney animated feature to not contain any songs, neither performed by characters or in the background.

The first Disney animated theatrical feature to receive a PG rating. It even had to be edited twice to avoid being released with a PG-13 rating.

Known by many as "the film Disney tried to bury," fans of both the fantasy genre and the film itself have tried many times to get the film's deleted footage restored.

According to animation artist Michael Peraza Jr., when Disney started having screenings for the public at the studio theater to gather their reactions to the rough cut of this film, he knew that the "un-dead" section would most likely be revolting to some in the audience who would not expect to see a bunch of rotted corpses slowly fermenting. When the film reached the "un-dead" sections close to the end of the film, the doors opened and a mother was angrily leaving with her two wailing children. She was followed by another, and soon there was a sizable exodus of crying kids and upset parents fleeing from the theater. The un-dead sections were quickly cut from the film.
