Based on the story of the sword in the stone, The Kid Who Would Be King marks the first directorial endeavour for Attack the Block helmer Joe Cornish. To celebrate its release, we sat down with the filmmaker himself, as well as all of the leading cast-members form this adventurous British production.

We met the four leading kids – such as Louis Ashbourne Serkis, , as well as Merlin himself, Angus Imrie, and the wonderful Rebecca Ferguson, who plays the film’s primary antagonist Morgana.

Watch all interviews in the videos below:


Old-school magic meets the modern world when young Alex stumbles upon the mythical sword Excalibur. He soon unites his friends and enemies, and they become knights who join forces with the legendary wizard Merlin. Together, they must save mankind from the wicked enchantress Morgana and her army of supernatural warriors.

The Kid Who Would Be King is released on February 15th.
