The classic tale of King Arthur meets the modern world, setting the perfect adventure for children and adults alike. Alex (Louis Ashbourne Serkis) thinks he’s just another nobody until he stumbles upon the mythical sword in the stone, Excalibur. After being confronted by the young and old versions of Merlin (Angus Imrie and Sir Patrick Stewart), Alex takes on the task of assembling a band of knights–including his school bullies–in order to defeat the powerful enchantress, Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson). To save the future, the Knights of the Round Table must work together and demonstrate their bravery and trust.
Cleverly written by director and writer, Joe Cornish (“Ant-Man”; “The Adventures of Tintin”) “The Kid Who Would Be King” teaches children and adults that people of all ages can truly make a difference.
