This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Quest for Camelot
Rubur serves the cause of the Chaos Gods from Warhammer.
One could easily make this connection by looking at how his "Mechanical Army" is created—-shades of Khorne.

Kayley is an ancestor of Belle.
Belle could almost pass as Kayley's identical descendant. Seriously, look at their faces and not think Strong Family Resemblance. As for why Belle is in France, one of Kayley's descendants before Belle moved to France for whatever reason.

The Knights of the Round Table are communist warlords.
"Each of us will now divide, in equal shares our countryside."

Ruber has a plan.
It includes you.

Quest for Camelot is the sequel to Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Look at the two King Arthurs. The king who Kayley is fighting for looks quite a bit like Graham Chapman, doesn't he? And Merlin doesn't look unlike Tim the Enchanter. Think about it. The singing at Camelot. The insanity of the whole movie. Ruber's helmet even resembles that of the Knights Who Say Ni. The swamp that Kayley meets Garret in is the "bloody swamp" that the Swamp Castle was build over (it sank again).
  • Oh god! it all makes sense now!
  • Eric Idle voices Devon. 'Nuff said.
  • Alternatively, Monty Python and the Holy Grail is the sequel to Quest for Camelot, if you buy that King Arthur already had a couple of knights back in Camelot already (which is assumed in Monty Python and the Holy Grail).
    • Which means the King of Swamp Castle hasn't even started building his castles yet, the Knights of Ni are basically remnants of Ruber's forces, and Merlin retired from Arthur's court, disguised himself and gave himself the fake name of Tim.

The bad guys locked up Bladebeak's wife for a reason.
She's a chicken, they're a bunch of hedonistic gluttonous bad guys, and they're about to go somewhere that involves large banquets and giant tables. Don't get it? They were going to cook and eat her to celebrate their victory. Bladebeak found out and this became the straw that broke the camel's back.

The entire "If I Didn't Have You" sequence was all in Garret's head.
C'mon. It's hard to believe Kayley wouldn't pay attention to all the flashy stuff going on, or at least lampshade it afterwards. In reality, Devon and Cornwall were just singing the song itself, acting it out. All those flashy things and the mysterious background-music appearing were just in Garret's head. His imagination sprung loose and so the scene happened such as we saw it. It also explains why he didn't want any more songs: being used to seeing the world as a person living in medieval times, all those flashy, crazy things going on was too much for him. He didn't want his imagination to run amok again.
  • Oh my God...
  • Given that the man can't see, and therefore probably has a bit of an active imagination to compensate... I've certainly heard stranger theories.
