Arthur's Legacy is a 2007 comedy brickfilm by Zach Macias. It follows the story of a young Arthur, who becomes king after pulling the sword Excalibur out of the stone[1]. It is a comedic retelling of a part of the story from The Sword in the Stone and was an entry into the third Twenty-four Hour Animation Contest, ultimately placing fourth.[2]


A narrator begins to tell the tale of King Arthur. According to the narrator, Arthur was raised by the wizard Merlin, and pulled Excalibur from the stone with his bare hands while a crowd watched.

A title appears onscreen: "What actually happened..." Arthur, by himself, approaches the sword in the stone and chips the stone away with a hammer and chisel. Eventually, the stone breaks away, freeing the sword. Arthur takes the sword, scoffing "Idiots."
