    The Thief and the Cobbler




    The Thief and the Cobbler (2007 Recobbled Cut) [v2.0] - 1:37:17 - Nov 18, 2006
    Richard Williams Animation Ltd.

    Possibly the greatest animated film. A true masterpiece of craftsmanship, as well as humor. An ancient prophecy foretells that if the Golden City's balls are stolen, death and destruction will fall upon it. After a thief takes them, doom impends if a meek cobbler cannot save the city. A special fan edit of The Thief and the Cobbler reconstructed by Garrett Gilchrist of Orange Cow Productions. Combines the fabled uncut work print with other footage from the released versions, as well as other rare materials to create the most complete film - not to mention the most faithful to the original vision. The film itself was directed by Richard Williams, best known for his Oscar-winning animation direction for Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The voice cast includes Vincent Price, Sir Anthony Quayle, Hilary Pritchard, Joan Sims, and Felix Aylmer. Also featuring cameo vocal performances by Donald Pleasance and Sean Connery.

    I am embarrassed to say I have never heard of this movie. Thank you for posting it. I have watched it now twice already. Visually amazing!

    Ive watched this about 3 different times. I see subtle GREATNESS in animation and story telling each time. Its also funny to see the ""DISNEY""" style in its VERY early form.

    At first glance this really looks like a seriously harsh ripoff of Aladdin. I remember seeing this movie at the video rental store when I was a kid, and I always dismissed it because of that. Apparently, though being released in 1993 for Australia/South Africa and in 1995 for America (A year after Aladdin came out), it was in production way longer than Aladdin, for 31 years from 1964 to 1995. The 1995 version reportedly sucked, but this is pretty cool. It also brings to mind the whole Kimba the White Lion/Lion King controversy, as well as all those other animated movies that came out which seem to have way too similar themes (EG a bug's life/antz).
