"The Recobbled Cut is a valuable and sensitive attempt at restoration that hints at the extraordinary work that The Thief and the Cobbler could have been if Williams had been allowed to complete it ... The remarkable and singular look of the film would have adequately papered over the narrative cracks. It’s a fun adventure romp blessed with some of the most eye-wateringly beautiful animation you could ever wish to see."

(Note: Nothing from Howard Blake's short script was used, and it's weird that anyone talks about it now. Margaret French wrote the film, in roughly final form before 1980, and deserves all that credit.)

"Gilchrist’s assemblage hints at how monumental a finished Thief and the Cobbler might have been. It combines Williams’s jaw-dropping use of simulated camera movement, his love of smooth character animation, and so many other wonderful talents to create one of the great might-have-beens of film history and a tribute to an exacting and demanding animator who kept creating stunning work — all drawn by hand — right up until his twilight years."

"He was — and this is not an exaggeration — the greatest animator in the world and had been for decades. Over the course of his career, he conjured unreal visions solely with pen and paper, resisting almost all use of computers (toward the end of his life, digital entered his process for the final compositing stage, but never for the actual animation). A notoriously exacting boss at his company, Richard Williams Animation, such attention to detail produced a singular style and beauty rarely matched and even more rarely exceeded in the form."

At the end of her feature film (seen elsewhere on this channel), SheHulk faces some returning villains.
