The Sword and the Stone gets a modern remake of sorts in The Kid Who Would Be King. The film tells the story of Alex, a twelve-year-old British schoolboy whose everyday problems are dwarfed by his discovery of the mythical sword Excalibur.
Now, with the most powerful sword in history in the hands of the most powerless schoolboy in Britain, an epic adventure begins as Alex and his friends must thwart a medieval villain named Morgana, who is hell-bent on destroying the world.
The Kid Who Would Be King features the debut of Louis Serkis, who is the son of director and mo-cap master, Andy Serkis.
