The legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table has been told countless times – but never quite like this. Watch the trailer for The Kid Who Would Be King below.
Alex (Louis Ashbourne Serkis, son of Andy "Gollum" Serkis) is a regular schoolboy, contending with bullies, homework and the things you’d expect a kid his age to have on his plate. But when he pulls Excalibur out of a stone at a building site, he has to rally an army of students for an epic showdown with Morgana’s (Rebecca Ferguson) evil forces.
