Rowanne, Sir Bryant, and Denys are all completely original characters, but each could be interpreted as having at least a few similarities to ones in Hal Foster's comic strip. In the comic, Valiant and Arn both love Ilene, while in this show they are both shown to have feelings for Rowanne (albeit the two reflecting on this is temporary). Though not a Moor, Sir Tristram is one of the earliest knights to befriend Valiant and often seen with him and Sir Gawain, very much like Bryant. Although not related to anyone noteworthy as Denys was, Geoffrey also found himself free from a cruel home situation and became the most developed of Valiant's squires. See more »
I respectfully disagree with the poster who had issues with the female lead's voice. On the contrary, Noelle North's voice was among the highlights of this series, which this long-time Prince Valiant fan heartily enjoyed from start to (*sigh*) finish. Thanks, Noelle, for making this Legend all that much better.
I do agree that the animation at times wasn't the best -- especially when characters and horses and such were walking. But I suspect that this had more to do with the budget and deadlines than the talent of the animators. More important, isn't it great that people still hold the Arthurian legends near and dear to their hearts? I can't help but think that this was a labor of love for most of those who contributed to The Legend of Prince Valiant.
