In the film, a sword in a stone has an inscription proclaiming that whoever removes the sword is the rightful King of England. Several try but none succeed in removing the sword until an 11-year-old orphan named Arthur (given the nickname “Wart”) pulls the sword from the stone and becomes King Arthur.
