See 14 minutes of lost animations from Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Monty Python and the Holy Grail turns 40 this year, and to mark that milestone occasion (and the corresponding anniversary Blu-ray release), Monty Python has unveiled a trove of Terry Gilliam’s lost animations from the film.

The 14 minutes of video includes deleted animations from “The Tale of Sir Robin,” “The Tale of Sir Lancelot,” and more, all set to music by Neil Innes that didn’t make it into the final cut, plus commentary from Gilliam himself. (“Why have I always liked snails?” he wonders at one point. “I mean, they’re dumb, stupid pieces of meat.”)

Monty Python and the Holy Grail’s 40th anniversary Blu-ray, DVD, and castle-shaped box set will come out in the U.S. on Oct. 27. You can see all of Gilliam’s deleted animations above.
