So, when Arthur returns it’s as a twelve-year old public school kid?
While The Kid Who Would Be King sounds like it could be a grade Z waste of time, the talent behind it suggests it could be a surprisingly good movie – Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) wrote and directed; Louis Ashbourne Serkis (SS-GB, Taboo) is Alex; Patrick Stewart (ST:TNG, Ted) is Merlin, and Rebecca Ferguson (the last two Mission: Impossible films) is Morgana.
The Kid Who Would Be King opens on January 25, 2019.
