I recognize a few, but some I've definitely never heard of.

And if they're on this map with the likes of Middle Earth and Westeros, I'm assuming they're pretty prominent in the fantasy world.

Can anyone tell me what movies and / or novels are set in these fantasy lands?

Should this be tagged story-id? It kind of feels like it should, but it's also not a typical story-id question... – Jason Baker Jan 20 at 0:34

@JasonBaker Not a typical story-identification question, but still appropriate to tag it that in my opinion. – Dijkgraaf Jan 20 at 1:30
    
I'm a bit disappointed not to see the Kingdom of the Isles on there... – Mason Wheeler Jan 20 at 15:30

Surely most (if not all) can be easily found by an internet search. – GEdgar Jan 20 at 15:40

This map is wrong in that technically Arthurian legend's Avalon is an island and does not contain Camelot. Avalon is Arthur's immortal resting place. – Mark Rogers Jan 20 at 15:40

I have a soft spot in my heart for Krull. Ok, maybe it's a soft spot in my head, but still. Fond memories. – Todd Wilcox Jan 20 at 4:39

Was there anything on that map that wasn't Duckduckgo-able? – user14111 Jan 20 at 8:12

I'm pretty sure that "Fantasia" is from The Neverending Story. – Pablo Jan 20 at 9:22

Maybe this should be merged with @JasonBaker 's answer (mainly for maps and the indexes on the second one). – Panzercrisis Jan 20 at 17:39
