People of Camelot and Cinderellasburg are in distress due to spotting a dragon in their midst, and later a snake.Nell Minow of Common Sense Media gave the film four out of five stars, writing, "Delightful classic brings Arthur legend to life". Answer: Because Arthur was a nice person and smart, and that’s matter because the king need to be a good person to lead the people. White’s Merlin is right up there as my favourite characterisation of the great wizard, no mere Obi Wan Kenobi of a mentor, but a being who has a very complex story all in itself as he traverses life in reverse time.

When they arrive at the Castle, Merlyn demonstrates his magical powers, and although Sir Ector dismisses them as sleights of hand, he nevertheless hires Merlyn.After he is crowned, Wart is given gifts from all over the world and from his friends, both animal and human.

Madam Mim was adapted into the Duck universe where she sometimes teams with Magica De Spell and/or the Beagle Boys.
