The Kid Who Would Be King – Trailer 1

The Kid Who Would Be King
The Kid Who Would Be King made me think – Grange Hill meets King Arthur, as the picked-upon boy is the only one who can save the world.

And of being told he must put paid to the evil Morgana, “How am I supposed to stop her? That’s ridiculous. I’m 12(!)”

This sounds like an utterly terrible idea for a movie, as a band of kids embark on an epic quest to thwart a medieval menace, especially with a tagline, “The kids rule, and evil gets schooled” – with British locations and actors mixing with daft Americanisms, but I was laughing a lot during this trailer and it looks like it might just hit the right mix between a fun film for kids, and a film that adults will also enjoy.
