The English king dies leaving no heir. In the churchyard of a cathedral in London, a sword appears embedded in a stone. It is inscribed with a prophecy. Although many try, no one can budge the sword from the stone. Deep in the dark woods, Merlin the Magician begins to teach 11-year-old Arthur, who lives in the castle of Sir Ector where he's an apprentice squire to Sir Kay. Arthur learns the basic truths of life, but he also runs into the evil Madam Mim, who tries to destroy him. A great tournament is held in London to pick a new king. Arthur, attending as Kay's squire, forgets Kay's sword, and runs back to the inn to get it, but the inn is locked. Arthur, seeing the sword in the stone, innocently, and easily, pulls it out. When the knights marvel at the wondrous sword and question where he got it, Arthur has to prove himself all over again by pulling the sword from the stone.

Great Arthur story. This title doesn't have a princess's name so that boys who complain about watching "girl movies" can have a medieval story of their own.

Fun, animated movie for the kiddies with lots of great, off-beat characters, especially the Magnificent Marvelous Mad Madame Mim. Strange, though, that through most of the movie Merlin pushes knowledge, study & wisdom as the keys to success, instead of relying on luck and fate, but then at the end Arthur gets to travel to London based on pure luck (the other squire gets sick), and he pulls the sword from the stone based on fate. Seems like luck and fate worked out pretty well for him.

I love all the old Disney Movies like the Sword and the Stone

It's cute if you like Sleeping Beauty-style animation. The only reservation I had about this movie was that there was absolutely no major conflict, just very minor stuff.
