Arthurian adventure movie ‘The Kid Who Would Be King’ looks like a lot of fun

The first trailer for new family film The Kid Who Would Be King has been unveiled.

Loosely based on the King Arthur legend, the upcoming British adventure movie tells the story of a kid in modern London who finds Ex­cal­ibur, the sword in the stone, in a building site.

Featuring The Greatest Showman star Re­becca Fer­gu­son as the vil­lain­ous Mor­gana and Star Trek legend Patrick Stewart as an older Merlin, The Kid Who Would Be King arrives in UK cinemas next February and it looks like it’s going to be really fun.

Watch the trailer:

The movie’s official synopsis reads: “Alex 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, take on the wicked enchantress Morgana. With the future at stake, Alex must become the great leader he never dreamed he could be.”
