** While it's far from the only adaptation to do so, this sets King Arthur in medieval England, about a thousand years after King Arthur is supposed to have lived. It's particularly glaring when "England" is mentioned as the setting--Britain only came into existence because Arthur and other ''Welsh'' kings failed to stop the English from taking their land.

* AdaptationalJerkass: In the original book, both Ector and Kay were much more shaded and sympathetic in personality. Ector was stern towards Wart and Kay, but not mean, and he truly cared for their welfare and actually wanted Wart to have a tutor to educate him, and was even proud of him well before he pulled out the sword. Kay could act like a jerk, but he had a justifiable reason, since he suffered from an inferiority complex and SiblingRivalry with Wart. The Disney adaptation [[TookALevelInJerkass throws out most of their sympathetic qualities and plays up their flaws in turn]]--Ector is almost a 180 in personality, becoming a bossy, demanding and judgmental disciplinarian who is against Wart being educated because it would mess up his rigid schedule, while Kay is reduced to a one dimensional bully who hates Wart for no good reason.
