It follows the Saxon protagonist, Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe, who is out of favour with his father for his allegiance to the Norman king Richard the Lionheart. The story is set in 1194, after the failure of the Third Crusade, when many of the Crusaders were still returning to their homes in Europe. King Richard, who had been captured by Leopold of Austria on his return journey to England, was believed to be still in captivity. Written by Paul Gerard Kennedy

Another one of Burbank Films Australia's better efforts
18 July 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Being someone who generally likes Burbank's offerings and greatly enjoys the story, while sometimes having corny dialogue and moments where the pace was a little too slow, I liked this version of Ivanhoe. The animation is not the best I've seen, but while the character designs could've been less sketchy the colours and backgrounds are really quite nice. The music is rousing also, and I did appreciate that a lot of detail went into the story so generally the plot did move along nicely. Adaptation-wise it is not as good as Wind in the Willows, but it is far better than the likes of Prisoner of Zenda or The Odyssey, you actually unlike those two versions actually feel the spirit is there at least here. The characters are not as interesting naturally as the ones in the original story, understandable considering the running time, but they are still engaging, while the voice work is solid. Overall, a good effort. 8/10 Bethany Cox
