An apprentice witch, three kids and a cynical magician conman search for the missing component to a magic spell to be used in the defense of Britain in World War II.
Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman wrote two songs that never made it past pre-production, despite Richard's protests. In "The Fundamental Element", Miss Eglantine Price would've explained her philosophy to the children after turning Charlie into a rabbit. Miss Price would've sung "Solid Citizen" to distract King Leonidas and get the magic star; ultimately, the soccer game replaced it. Both went unheard until demos performed by Richard Sherman appeared on the CD soundtrack re-issue. Part of "The Fundamental Element" was incorporated into the "Don't Let Me Down" portion of "Eglantine".
Captain Ainsley Greer:
You there, which way to Pepperinge Eye?
Elderly Farmer: Couldn't say, sir. It said on the wireless to paint out the sign posts in case the Nazis drop in.
Captain Ainsley Greer: I'm not a Nazi, I'm a British officer!
Elderly Farmer: That's what you'd say if you *was* a Nazi, isn't it sir?
Shots of the armor of the knights on horseback alternate between them advancing a few feet when German soldiers are in the shot, and several hundred feet when no other characters are visible.
The opening credits are based on the Bayeux Tapestry, a full account of the 1066 Norman conquest of Britain.
The Disney+ Version omits the subtitles for the German soldiers dialogue.
