Another underrated Disney Classic.
10 February 2018
The Sword In The Stone is a very charming and relaxing movie to watch. Just like any Disney feature animation, you want humour,emotions, songs and a happy ending and this movie fulfills all of these and more. Most of the humour comes from Sir Ektor(voice of Sebastian Cabot) and Archimedes (voice of Junius Matthews), but Merlin (voice of Karl Swenson) had some truly delicious lines. I just love Archimedes, he is absolutely hilarious, and still manages to be likable, despite being very grumpy. The animation was ver classic looking and extremely lovely, and the scenes when Wart (voice of Ricky Sorenson) was turned into various animals (a fish, squirrel and bird) were truly entertaining. The duel between Merlin and Madam Mim was the highlight of the film for me. I remember seeing that scene years ago and I absolutely loved it. The songs by the Sherman Brothers, while not particularly memorable, were very pleasant to listen to, as was the incidental music by the composer of the Jungle Book, George Bruns. All in all, a truly enjoyable movie, that is definitely underrated. Highly recommended to watch with the family.
