The Sword in the Stone
The Sword in the Stone is a Disney animated film based on the T.H. White novel The Sword in the Stone
It is about the search for a successor to the British throne after the death of King Uther Pendragon. A sword is found embedded in a stone and anvil with an inscription that proclaims that whoever can pull the sword is to be the rightful king. Many try, but no one is able to pull the sword, and with the passage of time, it is forgotten.
In the meantime, the boy Arthur, called “Wart” meets the wizard Merlin and his companion, the highly educated owl Archimedes, and with their guidance, learns the importance of education as well as valuable life lessons about justice through the use of Merlin’s magical shapeshifting powers.
Acting as a squire, Wart finds the sword in the stone while looking for a sword for his brother Kay to use in a tournament, and, without knowing what it is, pulls the sword from the stone. When the identity of the sword is realized and it is discovered that Wart was the one who pulled it, he is made King - wiser and better equipped to rule using the lessons he learned from Merlin
