The Kid Who Would Be King Trailer

Kids Rule in “The Kid Who Would Be King” Trailer

In these dark times, who will rise to save us? Kids, of course. In particular, a 12-year-old boy named Alex, who just happens to discover Excalibur, King Arthur’s sword, and pull it from its mythical stone. In doing so, he sets off a series of events that force him to rally his troops to defend against a greater evil, the enchantress Morgana.

The trailer sets a fun tone for a film that looks equal parts silly and exciting. Merlin, the famous wizard, is not an old man but a 16-year-old teenager. Perhaps old to a 12-year-old? Written and directed by Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) and set in modern day London, The Kid Who Would Be King takes a more lighthearted approach to King Arthur’s story, which is pretty much exactly what we need nowadays. As the tagline says, “kids rule and evil gets schooled.”
