ABOUT THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING (2019)

The Kid Who Would Be King or The Boy Who Wanted to Be King in Portuguese is a 2019 fantasy and adventure film written and directed by Joe Cornish. A British-American venture, the film stars Louis Ashbourne Serkis, Tom Taylor, Dean Chaumoo, Rhianna Doris, Angus Imrie, Rebecca Ferguson and Patrick Stewart. The plot follows the story of a young boy who finds King Arthur's legendary sword; Excalibur, and you must use it to prevent an ancient witch from destroying the world.

Distributed by 20th Century Fox, the film was released in the United States on January 25, 2019 and in the United Kingdom on February 15, 2019. Despite receiving positive reviews, the film failed at the box office as the studio spent more than 59 million and raised 39 million.

SYNOPSIS

Alex (Louis Serkis) is a boy who faces problems in high school, for always defending his friend Bedders (Dean Chaumoo) from the bullies Lance (Tom Taylor) and Kaye (Rhianna Dorris). One day, while running away from the duo, he hides in an abandoned construction site. There he finds a sword embedded in a stone, which he draws with great ease. What Alex didn't know was that the sword was the legendary Excalibur and that, as its new bearer, it now needs to face King Arthur's half sister, Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson), who is about to regain his power. To this end, he counts on the help of the wizard Merlin (Angus Imrie), transformed into a much younger version.
