quest to camelot movie

Romantic Tropes I’m an absolute sucker for:

The slow burn where they both love each other but think the other person doesn’t feel the same way but literally everyone in the world knows how they feel about each other.

They absolutely loathe each other but everyone around them knows that they actually totally love each other.

Royalty/Commoner ESPECIALLY when the commoner didn’t know they were royalty and feel so betrayed when they find out.

I mean really, any version of the Person A is hiding something about their identity for decentish reasons and Person B eventually finds out and is just so betrayed and Person A has some version of the “I didn’t mean for it to happen, but it did. I fell in love with you.” (Chasing Liberty is my favorite, okay?)

Also the “we’re from different worlds” version, too.

And of course Person A is trying to rescue/find/reunite with they significant other and Person B gets enlisted to help but then totally falls in love but thinks Person A really loves sigo, but when they finally are reunited they realize they really love Person B.


Like this post if you remember these NON-DISNEY animated movies from 80s-90s:

Swan Princess
Quest For Camelot
Land Before Time
Fern Gully
Page Master
The Brave Little Toaster
Troll In Central Park
We’re Back
An American Tail / Fievel Goes West
Road To Eldorado
The Prince Of Egypt
(Also, what movies am I leaving out?)

I’ve always had mixed feelings about the “Quest for Camelot” movie. Kayley’s design is cute and practical, and I’m surprised I haven’t seen more cosplays of her. The premise of the cartoon was overall pretty neat, but suffered from campiness and that scene-chewing two-headed dragon. The male love interest was also cool and maybe the only blind action character I’ve seen in fantasy, but… his face looks like a meme.

  • [at initiation]
  • Coco: Fox! Why won't you look at me when I'm talking to you? [grabs his shoulder and turns him to face her, eyes widening] Oh. I didn't realize you were...
  • Fox: What? Tall? Rugged? Handsome?
  • Coco: [quietly] Blind.
  • Fox: [chuckles] You know, I always forget that one.

zimeta and I marathoned a slew of “B” animated movies. And because I didn’t want to study I drew five leading ladies from the movies we watched.

I give you the Circus of the B Movie Stars!!

Lady Kayley, Princess Odette, Crysta, Snow White, and Thumbelina. Finest ladies of the “B” movie scene!
