☐ Unknown Fairytale Movie

I remember a movie I watched a bit of when I was young (early to mid-80’s) but cannot seem to figure out what it was. It was an animated kid’s movie similar to The Last Unicorn and Flight of Dragons. I always thought it was The Dark Crystal, but I recently saw that and now know that it was not. I only saw a little bit of it so I don’t have much to go on, but the part I did see was mostly a pale yellow and had some sort of creature (sort of like the Skeksis from Dark Crystal) scouting on a cliff, observing the movement of their army through a narrow-ish passage through the mountains. I also remember a sense of it being a popular, new movie that everybody was seeing at the time. I considered the original Lord of the Rings and Hobbit as well as The Secret of Nimh, but it is not those either. I also don’t think that it is Black Cauldron because I recall it being less cartoony; darker and more grotesque like Dark Crystal or Labyrinth. And yes, I considered the Neverending Story series, Legend, The Princess Bride, Krull, Ladyhawke, and Willow; it’s not those, it’s definitely animated. What movie could it be?
