As the title would suggest, it follows the travels of the legendary sword Excalibur through Arthurian myth, from the violent, powerful hands of Uther Pendragon, to a long-years' rest in the stone to being redrawn by Uther's son Arthur, who uses it to defeat the evil invaders and establish the great court of Camelot and the great Knights of the Round Table. It is there in Arthur's glory years and in his decline, brought on by the love affair between his wife Guenevere and best friend and best knight Sir Lancelot, the Holy Grail Quest which produces many casualties among the knights, and the arrival of Mordred, the son Arthur had by his evil half-sister, the sorceress Morgana. Through it all, the magician Merlin watches over everything, always ready to throw in a Charm of Making when it's called for. - Tommy Peter, IMDb

В основу фильма положена легенда о короле Артуре, волшебнике Мерлине, злой колдунье Моргане, замке Камелот с "круглым столом", доблестных рыцарях Ланселоте и Персивале и, конечно, магическом мече Экскалибуре, дающем не только силу и власть, но и мудрость. Волшебник Мерлин колдовством способствовал соединению королевы Корнуолла Игрейн и короля Ютера. От этого союза появился на свет Артур - король, объединивший земли и положивший конец междоусобным войнам с помощью волшебного меча Экскалибура. Прелюбодеяние королевы Гвиневеры ослабило волшебную силу меча, и король посылает рыцарей Круглого стола на поиски священного Грааля в замок своей сводной сестры Морганы.
