An underrated and almost forgotten treasure
6 February 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

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
