I think the same of Madame Mim, who again serves a pretty dubious purpose remember, young Wart, if someone insults you. The film is definitely entertaining, but there are a few drawbacks as well. Just before the climax of the movie, Wart forgets Sir Kay's sword in the inn in which they are staying. This treatment of the fantasy offers no magic, no buzz, no confection, no charm. The humour in the film starts very quickly as soon as Merlin appears and has trouble with the well outside. He made nothing so nothingy. It would look very silly if a powerful wizard was unable to open a locked door.
This is one of the main ingredient of the famous Disney Magic: Joy and tragedy! I'm really not much of a Disney fan, and a lot of their films I find are sentimental rubbish, to put it bluntly. Considering we're dealing with an older character than Pinocchio, it's just too bad that Pinocchio had to deal with much more hellish and sobering obstacles than does Wart. Pleasant Disney animation, without being a classic. It looked eventually like strangely pure introduction, or eternal imperfect musical. There's just not much to it.
I wanted to watch one of my movies last night and I picked The Sword in the Stone and rediscovered how much I loved this movie when I was a kid and still love it today. But there were quite a few things that I didn't like. As an aside, though the squirrel sequence is funny on the whole, its conclusion represents arguably the saddest moment in the film, one that shows love to be a greater force than gravity! My personal favourite was the squirrel scene, but the duel of Merlin and Mim was the highlight of the film for me. Most Disney classics are like stepping into a fantasy storybook, but this is little more than a cheap cartoon. Music The music in the film is catchy, albeit forgettable. Okay, maybe one animal transformation would have been alright. Not that it would even be worth saying if the film hadn't had Disney's stable of animators working on it, turning out their usual good work and struggling to make an impression.
Peet is studiously detached from his material. Though there isn't much of a plot, the development of character makes this film very entertaining. I can't say I loved this movie. You can do so by purchasing. I still find it funny. This isn't usually counted as being one of the top-ranking Disney films, but I insist on not being snobbish in this list, and remembering the films that brought me joy as a kid.

I just love Archimedes, he is absolutely hilarious, and still manages to be likable, despite being very grumpy. The lyrics of the songs are clever and memorable. What do you think of The Sword in the Stone? Here we have a film that has sold its soul - or at least its spirit - and gotten nothing in return. Charming entertainment for little kids and adults alike. Archimedes can also be humorous with his bitter, obnoxious demeanor, and certain other characters sometimes add humour as well, such as an evil witch named Madam Mim who appears in a segment later in the film.
The Sword in the Stone is a classic Disney film that should never be missed and I can't wait to show my children one day. Merlin The wizard is my favorite character in The Sword in the Stone. Something meaningful could have been made of Arthur's encounter with an amorous squirrel this occurs while he himself is in the body of a squirrel , something akin to the beautiful and literary swan episode in White's book. Wart doesn't learn anything really, except in a few instances. She has already watched it at least a dozen times, and I only checked it out from the library three days ago. No, not the best Disney by a long way and certainly not in the vanguard of the studio's work. Each Disney film praises, in some way or another, values that we can relate to nowadays.
Good animation, story, characters my favorite character is Merlin , songs, music, art and dialogue. It also takes place in Xavana savannah in African as part 1, but its content revolves around the love affair between Kiara - Simba and Nala's daughter with Kovu, Scar's youngest son who is also the uncle and enemies of Simba with his wife, Zira. It really seems to me Walt Disney had a hand in all of this, if just because every movie made by him has it. I used to watch the Sword in the Stone quite a number of times as a kid, and I know why later on in my years. The highlight for me was a showdown between Merlin and Mim in which they morph into a variety of creatures to battle one another and no morph looks the same twice. Not one character here has had the kind of iconography many of Disney's characters have, with the possible exception of Merlin. It includes Merlin, and his 'educated Owl' Archamedes, and a whole lot of wacky adventures trying to get Arthur, who can't read or write, into a mode of thought higher than how he's been raised.
I'm not all that familiar with the original story of the Sword in the Stone aside from the obvious more famous bits but I imagine the story guys on this movie took a lot of liberties. The songs might as well not be there, not that they make enough of an impression to do any harm, the story goes all over the place without going anywhere, the art directors had no very strong ideas - how many ways can I say it? I know the animation isn't up to par with today's standards, but this is the exact animation that I loved growing up with because the animators seemed to have a love for the film they were making. This is bad when your movie is dealing with the coming of age of King Arthur of all people. Since I didn't have the chance to get the soundtrack, I recorded the songs from the movie's copy to listen to them for endless times. Even if they wanted to make it as the real deal, then this is a historic case of a deficient movie. I'm an animator myself so maybe this means more to me than the average audience, but the character animation on Merlin and Madam Mim can easily go head to head with Disney's more highly regarded classics and the use of effects is remarkable in classical animation, effects refer to any animation that's not a character i. Everything from rain storms to pixy dust is masterly handled and adds a whole layer of wonder to the whole thing.
It's not a great Disney movie, but it's a solid one with scenes of real note. When it comes to classic Disney, The Sword in the Stone is usually overlooked compared to other sixties releases. But despite these problems, he remains optimistic and still dreams about being a great warrior and a knight's squire. It's not big, it's not clever, but it is fun! This is one of my all time favorite Disney films. Milt Kahl gets to do some straight cartooning with Merlin, and succeeds quite spectacularly, particularly in his use of hands animators take note. No-one has explained to my satisfaction what happened to the old or rather the young Walt Disney. Wart goes to retrieve it but the door is locked.
