The 12 years old Karen falls off her horse, and when she hits the ground, she's way back in the year 528, in England, near Camelot. She's immediately taken under arrest by Sir Lancelot: because of the dark color of her skin he's convinced she's a demon. But with some help of the 20th century's advanced technology she can safe herself from the stake and establish herself as great sorcerer. Only with her help, Arthur becomes as famous a king as we know him. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

A great movie for everyone!
16 March 2003 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie when i was about 10, and loved it. Although it doesn't have any big special effects, the movie doesn't need it. The plot may sound a little dull, but the actors portray each character very well. Rene Auberjonois, who plays Merlin adds humor to the movie and Hogo Blick, who plays Mordred, is simply evil, yet you have to like him. Whip Hubley (Lancelot) i think did the best job of all. He is so sweet and courageous, that you cant help but to adore him. Overall this movie is a enjoyable and funny adventure for all ages.
