Trivia / The Sword in the Stone

  • Cross-Dressing Voices: In the Japanese dub, Mika Doi voices Arthur, and also overlaps with Playing Against Type, as she's normally casted for voicing very feminine roles.
  • Fan Nickname: Fans of the girl squirrel have nicknamed her "Hazel".
  • The Other Darrin: There were no less than three different voice actors for Arthur. And it was very noticeable. Two sound very similar: young and squeaky. While the other is the voice of a teenager who's gone through puberty. Two of which sound a lot like Mowgli or Christopher Robin. While neither of them voiced Mowgli or Christopher Robin, the older one did. Two of them are also animator/director Wolfgang Reitherman's sons.
  • What Could Have Been: The Wizard's Duel in the film, judging by concept art, was going to be very similar to the original book, ending with Mim turning into an Aulay (that is a giant equestrian beast with an elephant's trunk) just before Merlin turns into the germ.
  • Write Who You Know: The animators based Merlin on Disney himself, noting that they were both cantankerous, argumentative, but brilliant and ultimately lovable.
