An underrated and almost forgotten treasure
I honestly love the King's Beard. There was a time when it was played
every Christmas but it isn't anymore. Shame really, this is actually
really good. My only complaints are that it is too short and I do
remember the beginning being a little on the intense side. Everything
else though is great, the animation is colourful and nice and the music
is lovely. I loved the simplicity of the story and characters, and that
both elements were engaging enough for kids and adults. The vocal
characterisations are excellent, Jim Broadbent and Colin McFarlane
especially do a great job as the Wizard and the villain Jasper. I liked
Sophie, she is beautiful and Rufus is very likable. Overall, I like
this underrated and almost forgotten treasure. 8/10 Bethany Cox.
A Great Movie For Both Kids And Adults
The Kings Beard is a absolutely great film. I watched it the day before
Christmas- I\'m really glad I did! The animation is top-notch and the
story is brill. But I must warn you, the songs can get quite annoying
after watching it more than five times, but it\'s a good film, perfect
for a rainy day.I found that, after asking around my own age group,
that majority of people loved it, even my mum loves it! It\'s simple but
has a really good feel to it- a lot of heart must of gone into it.
Whatever you do, don\'t judge the clips of it or front cover of the
video, you need to see what it\'s really like by watching it. This is a
great film for all ages- even the older generations too. Hope you enjoy
it as much as I did... Have Fun!.
