Quest for Camelot
Directed by Frederick Du Chan
Warner Bros. 05/98 DVD/VHS Animated Film
In this enjoyable animated feature, two idealistic youths set out on a quest to save the Kingdom of Camelot. After her father Sir Lionel (voice of Gabriel Bryne) is killed defending King Arthur (Pierce Brosnan), young Kayley (Jessalyn Gilsig) dreams of one day being a Knight of the Roundtable. She gets her chance when Excalibur, Arthur's legendary sword, is stolen. The villain Ruber (Gary Oldman) wants to take control of Camelot. One of his warriors has dropped the sword in a dangerous forest. When Kayley goes there to retrieve it, she is befriended by Garrett (Cary Elwes), a blind young man who lives with his hawk. He also dreams of being a Knight. Together with the help of a funny two-headed dragon (Eric Idle and Don Rickles), these two courageous souls set out to foil Ruber's assault on Camelot.
Frederick Du Chan directs this animated work which is given moral uplift by three buoyant songs by David Foster and Carole Bayer Sager: "On My Father's Wings," "I Stand Alone," and "The Prayer."
