Aloha my wonderful merfolk!
Today, I thought I would share my three favourite characters from the Sword in the Stone. This film isn’t particularly full of characters with colourful back stories or character development. Majority of the film focuses on three characters and that it. However, if you look hard enough, there are some pretty good characters in this movie.
3. Granny Squirrel
This one might seem like a weird choice given the other characters in this film but she is just hilarious! The fact she’s so interested in Merlin and just chases him about always made me laugh as a kid.
As an honourable mention: Merlin Squirrel for his scene with Granny Squirrel. It’s one of my favourites.
2. Madame Mim
I know, the villain is number two. I’m not sorry. Mim is a fantastic villain and my favourite part of the whole film is the magic battle between Merlin and Mim. I do wish she had been in the film slightly more. Also her hair colour was my goals back when I was about 19 or 20. I just never took the nose dive to bleach my hair to get that colour.
This one might surprise people that the villain of the film is not my favourite character. However Archimedes is just too cool not to top this list. The scene represented in the gif below alone always makes me howl. He’s sassy, he’s sarcastic and overall one of my favourite owl characters Disney has ever created.
Who are your favourite characters from The Sword in the Stone.
