Prod. 2138 - The Sword in the Stone  - Cover and Seq. .001 "Prelude"

It's been too long since I have been blogging on a daily basis - Christmas and work did not help - but now at least I have a new draft to show here. As promised, it is the draft to Walt Disney Productions' production number 2138: The Sword in the Stone. So come with me on this journey through this quite underrated film in the next weeks. Here is first the cover of my copy which originally was used in the BG Morgue at the studio...

The Sword in the Stone was directed by Woolie Reitherman, assisted by Ed Hansen and Danny Alguire and secretary Betty Gossin, with layouts by Don Griffith and Basil Davidovich.

Sequence .001 - Prelude - is credited to Dick Lucas with effects animation by Dan MacManus. This draft of 6/13/63...
As before (e.g. see the first page of the Sleeping Beauty draft), the usual disclaimers apply as to the correctness of the information on the draft.

Great to see you posting again. I remember liking "The Sword in the Stone" a lot when I saw it as a kid. Unfortunately, I wasn't too impressed with it in one of the later re-releases and almost disappointed when I saw it on DVD.

One thing your drafts sure help to do (besides getting to know animators' styles) is re-evaluate movies I have thought I knew everything about.

Thanks and a happy New Year!

I have a soft spot for this film, and I look forward to looking at it again very closely. Thanks much for posting this doc.

That frames to feet scale was very useful!
