The myth of King Arthur (Nigel Terry) brought once again to the screen.

Uthur Pendragon (Gabriel Byrne) is given the mystical sword Excalibur by the wizard Merlin.

At his death, Uthur buries the sword into a stone, and the next man that can pull it out will be King of England.

Several years later, Arthur, Uthur's bastard son, draws Excalibur and becomes King.

Guided by Merlin, Arthur marries Guenevere (Cherie Lunghi) and gathers the Knights of the Round Table.

Arthur's evil half-sister Morgana (Dame Helen Mirren) sires a son with him, who may prove to be his downfall.
