This question already has an answer here:
Wands are a huge part of the magic system in Harry Potter. A wand is required to perform most magic (from what I've seen so far). This definitely isn't the first instance of wands being used to assist or perform magic. I remember watching Disney's The Sword in the Stone when I was a kid and seeing Merlin use his wand to perform magic. While this movie is from 1963, I'm sure there are much earlier examples of wands in use, but which is the first?
I'm specifically looking for wands not staffs. This is not limited to Disney movies. Any example is acceptable.
