After King Gerlach dies, Merlin the Magician must care for Baby Arthur and do his best to make sure Arthur eventually takes his rightful place as King.
The classic tale of King Arthur is told afresh with Merlin the wizard, the sword in the stone, and the land of Camelot. In this animated film for kids, the boy Arthur is faced with the challenge of growing up in search of purpose and identity. When his mentor and caretaker, Merlin, decides to take on a different magical apprentice, Arthur is left directionless and leaves to find his destiny. This whimsical tale follows Arthur on the journey from boyhood to manhood as he takes up the mantle of King of Camelot.This short movie, with nothing but good, clean fun, earns it the Dove Seal of Approval. The only thing to note would be that it is a film all about magic. For some parents, this is nothing to bat an eye at, yet for others, it merits the raising of eyebrows. If you’re willing to have a conversation about fiction and the role of magic in a mythical world, Camelot has the potential to provide a fun adventure for your kids on a Saturday morning.
