About the Movie
Dazzling color and brilliant animation bring the medieval legend of King Arthur to life in "The Sword In the Stone." With a forest full of charm, spectacle, and wizardry, Disney's classic tale conjures up delightful entertainment for all ages! England is in the midst of a dark age and without a proper king, Young "Wart," an orphan and squire-in-training, is content with kitchen duties in his foster home -- until he drops in on the extraordinary wizard Merlin and his articulate owl, Archimedes. Through three life lessons, Wart learns to set his "sights on the heights," armed with the most powerful forces on earth -- intellect, wisdom, and love. When it's time to contest who will be king, Wart must use his newfound knowledge to do what no mighty knight has done before! Join in all the magical marvels that make "The Sword In the Stone" a classic animated film and pure Disney gold!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The humor sparkles with real, knowing sophistication -- meaning for all ages -- and some of the characters on the fifth-century landscape of Old England are Disney pips.
Fresh: The feature-length cartoon demonstrates anew the magic of the Disney animators and imagination in character creation.
Rotten: There is still some life in the characterizations, though the animation is turning stiff and flat.
Fresh: It feels older than contemporary Disney work due to flat, creaky animation. The story still has resonance for kids, though.
plese let me buy it
A full-star movie gets a one-star treaetment.
The Sword in the Stone, along with Alice in Wonderland, is my favorite animated film of all time. So, naturally, it can only be rented and not purchased (yet). Oh, well! At least The Sword in the Stone has found its way into iTunes somehow, unlike Alice in Wonderland.
i want to buy it!
please make it available to be bought!
