Terry Gilliam’s 14-minute long deleted animations from Monty Python & The Holy Grail

To celebrate the 40th anniversary theatrical re-release of ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’ and the release of the 40th anniversary Blu-Ray, DVD & limited edition castle gift set, the British comedians put together this video of Terry Gilliam’s lost animations from the film.

The film received a 97% “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with the consensus: “a cult classic as gut-bustingly hilarious as it is blithely ridiculous”. In the US, the film was selected as the second best comedy of all time in the ABC special Best in Film: The Greatest Movies of Our Time; in the UK, readers of Total Film magazine ranked the film the fifth greatest comedy film of all time, and a similar poll of Channel 4 viewers placed the film sixth (2000).
