Description by OLDIES.com:
Where myth and history meet, where good vanquishes evil, the heart of a lion beats in the body of a child. Eric Stoltz and Gabriel Byrne star in this epic adventure set in the time of the Crusades. En route to join Richard the Lionhearted's forces bound for the Holy Land, young knight Robert Serra (Stoltz) discovers his destiny elsewhere: as champion of the children of the Crusades - the hungry, tattered, orphaned and forgotten little ones victimzed by the war. And as foe of the Black Prince (Byrne), a ruthless warlord who wants to sell the children into slavery. Graced by the craft of two Academy Award? winners*, director Franklin J. Schaffner and composer Jerry Goldsmith, Lionheart fills its screen with grand vistas and sword-clanging clashes, yet also finds time for boisterous bursts of humor and lyrical romance. Take the journey.
A young knight, whose quest to join King Richard the Lionhearted's Holy Land crusade is interrupted by a more urgent mission: save a ragtag band of homeless but resourceful children from a merciless slaver known as the Black Prince.
Medieval tale about Robert Nerra, a youthful knight trying to locate the mysterious King Richard II, who's bound for the Crusades. Nerra becomes something of a pied piper, as dozens of young vagabond children follow him in his search for the king. Danger is omnipresent, however, in the form of the Black Prince, who wants to kidnap and enslave the children.
