The Sword in the Stone: 50th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray

Posted May 17, 2013 04:48 PM by Webmaster

Walt Disney PicturesThis summer, Walt Disney Home Entertainment has announced it will bring The Sword in the Stone to Blu-ray in celebration of the film's 50th anniversary. The 1963 animated adaptation of the T. H. White novel of the same name was Walt Disney Animation's 18th feature, and makes its Blu-ray debut on August 6th.

Official Synopsis: Take an amazing journey with a young orphan named "Wart" (voiced by Rickie Sorenson, Richard Reitherman and Robert Reitherman) and the extraordinary wizard Merlin (Karl Swenson). According to legend, only someone with the purest character and inner strength can pull the enchanted sword from the stone and claim the throne of England. Armed with newfound confidence and the power of friendship, Wart discovers his destiny and learns the best magic is the kind you find inside yourself.

The film also features the voice talents of Sebastian Cabot (The Jungle Book, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh) as Sir Ector, Junius Matthews (The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too) as Archimedes, Martha Wentworth (101 Dalmatians, The Stranger) as Madam Mim, Norman Alden (Transformers: The Movie, Back to the Future) as Sir Kay, and Alan Napier (Marnie, Batman) as Sir Pellinor.

The Sword in the Stone is being made available via Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy and BD/DVD combo packs, and presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. Special features include:

  • New Alternative Opening: Wart Meets Merlin
  • Original Classic DVD Release Bonus Features
  • Music and Magic: The Sherman Brothers
  • Sing-along with The Movie
  • All About Magic Excerpt
  • A Knight for a Day
  • Brave Little Tailor

Again I hope they give us the original 1.37 release from the matt negative (like Dumbo and Alice) and do not try to modernise this wonderful classic by topping and tailing it to be "modern".

This is great news! I love Disney's adaptation of The Sword In The Stone.

I hope that the Blu-Ray will feature the Widescreen presentation and the original Mono mix. I own the 45th Anniversary Edition DVD that was released five years ago in June of 2008 and I recently watched it and thought that the transfer is still pretty good. That DVD was rumored to present the movie in Widescreen but in the end it was Fullscreen Version.

Wow, Disney is going to be releasing Robin Hood and Oliver and Company on Blu-Ray that same day. I think I am going to grab all three.

While I had wished for a Sword in the Stone/Black Cauldron combo, this is still worth celebrating! Now, please, please announce Cauldron.

25 The Black Cauldron July 24, 1985
31 Aladdin November 25, 1992

one of my least favorite Disney animated films - not that it's bad, but it's a tad short and piffle in my opinion - I'll buy it if I can find it at a cheap price.

I hope they aren't going to just skip the poorly selling titles like Make Mine Music, Fun and Fancy Free, The Advs. of Ichabod and Mister Toad, Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros + The Black Cauldron. I need ALL the official Disney animated classic titles on Blu!

Can't wait! I loved the hell out of this movie as a kid. One of my all time favorites. Never got the DVD, though. But I have it stored in my DVR from an HD airing on Disney Jr.

And the cover is awesome!



@maidenbrain I can't wait for Black Cauldron either. Even though a lot of people seemed to hate Disney movies made during the 70s and 80s, I appreciate the hell out of them. They are so charming and refreshing, which is why I'm ecstatic for this new slew of Disney releases.

At first, I shuddered at the thought of a Sword in the Stone / Black Cauldron combo pack, then I kind of liked it, but I prefer that they remain individual even though they both deal with a common theme of legendary swords. Lol. It just wouldn't make sense to me to have them together like Fantasia or Rescuers does.

However, I'd think it'd be best if Disney released the package films from the 40s as... well, package films. (Fun & Fancy Free / Ichabod and Mr. Toad; Make Mine Music / Melody Time) Make sense to me seeing as they are already shorts put together. I can't wait for those to release as I have not seen them since VHS.



@Dubstar Cheap as in $20? That's about the lowest I see Disney Blu-rays go for nowadays. But I remember when Amazon gave $5 coupons for Pocahontas, Rescuers 2-movie collection, and Aristocats and they price matched Best Buy so each Blu-ray only costed me about $15. That was like the best deal ever, especially for a quality release like Rescuers / Down Under for only $15.

Those were the days.

Since then I can't bring myself to pay more than (or close to) $20 for the newer releases, like Hunchback (even though I really, really love it) and Brother Bear (haven't seen it). I got Mulan, though (when it was $20) and also pre-ordered the new ones coming out: Lilo and Stitch, Atlantis, and ENG.

The only released Disney canon movies I don't own are Hunchback, Brother Bear, and Home on the Range (for reasons irrelevant to price).

Only Disney movies I can remember buying (not first week) for "cheap" was:
Treasure Planet - $12.99
Great Mouse Detective - $12
Pete's Dragon - $12

did not expect this one. It was my absolute favorite as a kid and I still think it's underrated. Really, really looking forward to this.

Is this the one where the boy is turned into a squirrel, a fish, etc.? If so, I loved that films when I was a kid.

Yes, Bluyoda, this is that movie.

Though not held in high esteem, SITS has always been one of my favorites. It was the first Disney film I saw theatrically and, so, has a special place in my heart. I still own the Disneyland Records pop-up storybook LP, in fact.
