Storyline

During the times of King Arthur, the story of an adventurous brave girl, named Kayley, whose father, a Knight of the Round Table, is killed by Sir Ruber, a maniacal brute who steals Excalibur and ultimately threatens to seize King Arthur's Camelot. Kayley enlists the blind, reclusive knight-aspirant Garrett and a goofy two headed dragon to brave the Enchanted Forest and retrieve the magic sword. Their adventure is also, of course, fraught with danger. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Goofs

When the bad guy tries to attack King Arthur he is repelled by the sword. He runs out of the chamber and slams the heavy wooden doors closed behind him. As he does so three knights throw a spear at him. However on the other side of the doors, seven spears are shown piercing through it. See more »

Quotes

Garrett: [singing] I know the sound of each rock and stone./ I embrace what others fear./ You are not to roam in this forgotten place./ Just the likes of me are welcome here./ Everything breathes and I know each breath./ For me it means life, for others it's death/ Perfectly balanced,/ Perfectly planned,/ More than enough for this man.

Crazy Credits

The first half of the closing credits revolves around the Stonehenge in which Excalibur, King Arthur's sword, was originally found. When it shows the cast & the animators, the main characters is aside from them. See more »

Alternate Versions

The French track of the DVD plays "The Prayer" after "Looking Through Your Eyes" instead of "I Stand Alone" during the end credits. After "The Prayer", "I Stand Alone" does play but ends just short of the 3rd verse (the credits run out). See more »

An underrated good quality cartoon film.
30 August 2007 | by MightyzebraSee all my reviews

Genre: Cartoon, Camelot, Adventure with female knight in training.

Main characters: Kayley, Garret, Devon and Cornwall.

Actors: Lots of famous ones here! There is Cary Elwes (Garret), Eric Idle (Devon), Gary Oldman (Ruber), Jane Seymour (Juliana), Don Rickles (Cornwall), Pierce Brosnan (King Arthur), John Gielgud (Merlin).

What happens: Kayley is the daughter of Sir Lionel, one of the knights at the Round Table. The young girl dreams of following in her father's footsteps as a knight. Then, disaster strikes. Lionel is killed :-( and Kayley as well as others mourn for him. Kayley dreams on of becoming a knight...

My thoughts: This film had good potential. It had good animation, good, heartwarming songs, good characters and lots of good actors. They released it and (on IMDb especially) it sort of flopped like a deflated balloon. What happened?

Well, I don't know personally. I suppose a lot of people don't like this film for a number of reasons. Yes, the film isn't perfect, but it's CERTAINLY enjoyable and good to watch! It's also good for the children, they are likely to enjoy at least one aspect of the film and want to watch on (just like me when I was younger). They may enjoy the songs, they may enjoy the actors, they may enjoy the characters or the excitement, or they may enjoy the humour. They are most likely NOT to be disappointed.

Adults are most likely to like the actors. Monty Python fans will hopefully not be disappointed by the performance of Eric Idle. Also here is Jane Seymour (but not Henry the Eighth's wife OBVIOUSLY! :-) )

Why this film has gone down so badly is a mystery to me. I hope those of you who have never watched it before will enjoy it as much as I do.

Recommended to: Families who like cartoon films, people who like any of the actors I mentioned earlier and people who just like the sound of the film in general - enjoy! :-)
