Storyline

During the times of King Arthur, the story of an adventurous brave girl, named Kayley, whose father, a Knight of the Round Table, is killed by Sir Ruber, a maniacal brute who steals Excalibur and ultimately threatens to seize King Arthur's Camelot. Kayley enlists the blind, reclusive knight-aspirant Garrett and a young blind hermit and a goofy two headed dragon to brave the Enchanted Forest and retrieve the magic sword, and their adventure is also of course fraught with danger.

Goofs

When Lionel and the other knights go to Camelot, it takes a day for them to get there. When Arthur and the knights go to his house with his body, it might be implied that it took longer for them go there, as it is already winter. See more »

Quotes

Kayley: Hey, your falcon has silver wings!
Garrett: *Really?* I'll have to take your word for it.
Kayley: Oh, no. I'm Sorry, it just means he knows where Excalibur is!
Garrett: Sure he does, in Camelot. You know, big castle, lots of flags...
Kayley: No, it's somewhere in the forest!

Not excellent but very good anyway
27 January 1999 | by (Eindhoven, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I for one was eager to see Warner Brothers' first fully animated feature when it was released in the theaters. I didn't expect to see a Disney quality movie, but I was happy to find out that QfC came pretty close. And now it can be enjoyed on home video, which is a good thing.

Some animation in the movie wasn't as hot as I had hoped, but the songs... These are all really excellent. They are a joy to hear again and again. Special tribute must go to the animation of Ruber (the villain) who is really awesome to see. Ruber, to me, is the one that really makes this movie.

Even though some of the other characters may appear a bit bland, the overall art and animation is pretty good. With a little more work, Warner Brothers should be able to produce a movie that will perhaps match a Disney feature one day. The potential is there, I'm sure.

Quest for Camelot is a great first animated feature for WB. It isn't perfect, but it certainly has its charms.
