 Kid Who Would Be King Press Junket- Now In Theaters

Can you imagine what it would be like to be the King just for one day? Now imagine being a kid who finds out he is the King! That sure some comes with a lot of adventure attached to it. Recently I was invited to The Kid Who Would Be King NYC Press Junket.  Honestly, I felt as if I had become King for the weekend with the fun and adventure our family had. Pre-movie we were treated to King sized shakes at Black Tap in NYC! What an incredible night of yum. The next morning it was time to see the movie.

The Kid Who Would Be King is a fun adventure for the whole family that emphasizes the importance of friendship, leadership, and doing what’s right even in the face of adversity. When Alex (Louis Ashbourne Serkis) discovers Excalibur, the legendary sword in the stone, he and his friends embark on a journey to set things right in England. With the help of Merlin (Angus Imrie/Sir Patrick Stewart), they traverse the countryside and battle demon armies in an attempt to thwart the evil plans of King Arthur’s wicked sister Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson). Morgana seeks to corrupt England and take what she feels is her rightful place on the throne– will our band of young heroes have what it takes to stop her? Find out in The Kid Who Would Be King, in theaters now!

Whether young or old, everyone in our family loved The Kid Who Would Be King! Its roots in the legend of King Arthur (and an enthralling animated sequence narrating them at the beginning of the film) made this exciting twist on a classic tale captivating to all! With powerful messages about leadership, the future, and making sure to make the right choice even when it seems difficult, The Kid Who Would Be King will certainly be a conversation-starter in addition to simply being fun family entertainment. The film has it all– magic, humor, and plenty of heart– I’m sure that you and your family will enjoy it too!
We we also treated to a great press conference with the cast of the movie including Patrick Stewart. Each and every one of the cast shared their ideas on the movie and what it was like to be part of this great film. Medieval Times was on hand to show the children how to use a sword as if they were king! To end this amazing weekend we headed to FAO Schawrz where the children tried their luck at pulling an actual sword from the stone!
