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!
