The Kid Who Would Be King
Old school magic meets the modern world in the epic adventure THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING. Alex (Ashbourne Serkis) thinks he’s just another nobody, until he stumbles upon the mythical Sword in the Stone, Excalibur. Now, he must unite his friends and enemies into a band of knights and, together with the legendary wizard Merlin (Stewart), take on the wicked enchantress Morgana (Ferguson). With the future at stake, Alex must become the great leader he never dreamed he could be.
Cast: Louis Ashbourne Serkis, Dean Chaumoo, Tom Taylor, Rhianna Dorris, Angus Imrie, Patrick Stewart, Rebecca Ferguson
Written and directed by Joe Cornish, the film was produced by Nira Park, Tim Bevan, and Eric Fellner, with James Biddle and Rachael Prior serving as executive producers.
The heart of The Kid Who Would be King is based on the chivalric code that the wizard Merlin teaches young Arthur in the legend. This is the set of laws that King Arthur’s knights abided by, which dictated earnest moral behavior – honoring the people you love, persevering, refraining from offense and telling the truth. In the film, Cornish takes that moral code and applies it to modern kids, to see what its value is in today’s world.
This film is most certainly going to be a modern twist on an old classic tale. I cannot wait to experience The Kid Who Would Be King in theaters to see how the modern twist on an old legend looks on the big screen.
