Dazzling color and brilliant animation bring the medieval legend of King Arthur to life in THE SWORD IN THE STONE. With a forest full of charm, spectacle, and wizardry, Disney's classic tale conjures up delightful entertainment for all ages! England is in the midst of a dark age and without a proper king, Young "Wart," an orphan and squire-in-training, is content with kitchen duties in his foster home -- until he drops in on the extraordinary wizard Merlin and his articulate owl, Archimedes. Through three life lessons, Wart learns to set his "sights on the heights," armed with the most powerful forces on earth -- intellect, wisdom, and love. When it's time to contest who will be king, Wart must use his newfound knowledge to do what no mighty knight has done before! Join in all the magical marvels that make THE SWORD IN THE STONE a classic animated film and pure Disney gold!

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The picture quality is washed out, blurry and lacking any detail - it has been digitally manipulated to the point where it looks like a kids paint by number coloring book.
I have never returned a Disney Blu-Ray and asked for a refund - in fact, I have never returned ANY Blu-Ray based on quality and asked for a refund - but I will now.
I would rather watch my years old SD DVD than this horrific mess. It's that bad, and the DVD is actually SUPERIOR quality.
Stay far away.
And Disney - do the right thing and offer fans a replacement and re-pressing. This is utterly embarrassing. It's obvious you don't care about this title, but fans would have had a superior product if you had simply reissued the DVD.
Oh dear! Disney, the once and future king of high-definition transfers, has not only dropped the ball but the ball has bounced out of the court, rolled onto the highway and been flattened by a convoy of semi’s.
The picture has been scrubbed to death soooo much that much of the motion is smeary – to the point that I thought there was something wrong with my AV equipment. But after reading other reviews I was relatively relieved to learn that it is just the disc at fault.
As it is merely an ‘anniversary edition’ the supplements are thin on the ground as well.
As an act of goodwill and to restore faith in the fans, Disney really should remaster this transfer and offer an exchange scheme. (Or at least offer a remastered disc as a reward on their DMR site for those who have already redeemed the points for this version.)
In short, there is not much point in upgrading from the DVD. But don’t let this one slip put you off all of Disney’s catalogue. All of their other blu-rays I have watched have been exemplary. Which is what makes this release such a disappointment.
If by some miracle you haven't seen this, here's some of what you have to look forward to: Merlin the magician in his tall pointy blue hat and long robe and long white beard, and his sidekick Archimedes the grouchy but wise owl; animated dishes and household objects (the first movie to have these I think) - and when he packs up his house everything flies through the air shrinking down and packing themselves in his suitcase; as a lesson for young Arthur he turns him into a fish and they have an adventure in the water and nearly get eaten; in another lesson he turns Arthur into a squirrel; in another lesson he turns him into a sparrow and Arthur meets "Mad Madame Mim" an evil (but not scary) witch...and then there is a Wizards dual between Merlin and Mim which is just awesome!
It doesn't have the snappy remarks that Pixar and more recent Disney movies have - but it's not without humorous remarks. And I really love the "lessons" all kids can benefit from, but they're not preachy or like going to school.
I HIGHLY recommend watching this again and again! Probably better for ages 6 and up...
