Humor, spectacle and magic rule in Walt Disney's legendary classic tale The Sword In The Stone! Embark on an adventure-filled quest for an unlikely hero! According to legend, only someone with honor, decency and inner strength can claim the throne of England - by pulling out the enchanted sword that lies locked in a massive stone. Many brave knights have tried, so it seems impossible that a young apprentice known as Wart could succeed. But with the guidance of the wizard Merlin, help from some hilarious friends and true strength of character, Wart just might become England's greatest king.

Critics Consensus: A decent take on the legend of King Arthur, The Sword in the Stone suffers from relatively indifferent animation, but its characters are still memorable and appealing.

Delightful classic brings King Arthur legend to life.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Wart (aka the boy who will become King Arthur) experiences some bullying in this Disney classic. Witch Madam Mim can be a little scary, and both she and Merlin get quite angry on a couple of occasions. But otherwise The Sword in the Stone offers lots of positive lessons about courage, the importance of brains over brawn and fair play, and the power of love.
