This is the original cut of The Thief and the Cobbler. This particular version is missing some scenes but it compiled by Garrett Gilchrist as it was intended to be shown. It is so imaginative and entertaining! Enjoyed every minute.

The Thief and the Cobbler is a 1993 British animated fantasy film directed, co-written and co-produced by Canadian animator Richard Williams. The film is famous for its animation and its long, troubled history. Williams worked 28 years on the project. Beginning production in 1964, Williams intended The Thief and the Cobbler would be his masterpiece, and a milestone in the art of animation.

In 2006, a filmmaker, artist and fan of Richard Williams’ work named Garrett Gilchrist created a non-profit fan restoration of William’s workprint, named The Thief and the Cobbler: The Re-cobbled Cut (the version that appears above). Full history here.
