One of the most overlooked Disney movies has to be the 1963 film The Sword in the Stone . It tells the story of a young orphan named Arthur who pulls a sword out of a stone, suddenly becoming the king of England. In fact, the events that inspired the tale didn't even take place in England, but in Italy.

Also know, is there a sword in a stone in London?

The Sword in the Stone was located in the churchyard of St Paul's Cathedral in London. It had an inscription on it which stated that it could only be removed from its place (piercing an anvil which was atop a stone ) by the rightful king of Britain.

what happens if you pull the sword out of the stone in England? No and no. First off, even if it were real, the legend states that Arthur pulled the sword from the stone and became king. There's no evidence that there ever was really a sword in a stone, nor that pulling it out of the stone would have made someone king.
