The beginnings of Arthur as king are an interesting juxtaposition of pagan symbolism and Christian allegory. His removal of Excalibur from the stone reflects heavily on the pagan practice of icon worship, with the sword seen as the ultimate source of magical powers and associated with sovereignty of Great Britain. It is also in this scene of the movie, or excerpt of the legend, that the viewer or reader is simultaneously presented with the idea of Arthur as the “Chosen One”, an almost Christ-like figure with humble beginnings who is destined to be an important part of his world. Just as God had chosen Jesus Christ to spread his good news in the New Testament, to be the dynamic change that brought controversy and contradiction to the Jewish people, it seems there is an external source of power that has deemed Arthur the fated leader of his people; the king that, following the corruption and controversy of his father’s rule, will bring peace and glory to the people of his kingdom.

The Amduat was the sacred book of the Ancient Egyptians, which was reserved only for the Pharaohs. This book was based on the beliefs of the Egyptians that the deceased Pharaoh would undertake the dangerous journey in order to become reborn. United with the sun god, he travels in the boat of the sun from dusk to dawn.
