Mr. Link recruits explorer Sir Lionel Frost to help find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, this trio of explorers travel the world to help their new friend.
Old school magic meets the modern world in this epic adventure. Alex (Louis Ashbourne Serkis) thinks he's just another nobody, until he stumbles upon the mythical sword in the stone, Excalibur. Now, he must unite his friends and enemies into a band of knights and, together with the legendary wizard Merlin (Sir Patrick Stewart), take on the wicked enchantress Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson). With the future at stake, Alex must become the great leader he never dreamed he could be.Written by
The phrase "The Once And Future King" is taken from the title of T.H. White's four book series of Arthurian tales, the first of which was used as the basis for Disney's The Sword in the Stone (1963). White derived his title from the inscription that, according to Thomas Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur, was written upon King Arthur's tomb: "Here lies Arthur, king once, and king to be." It was White who first described Merlin as living through time backwards; an idea revisited by Joe Cornish in this movie. See more »

Really good fun family film
My wife and I watched this and really enjoyed it. It was a wet dreary day outside on a bank holiday Monday so this was a good way to spend it. Love how it was all set in the UK. Yes its King Arthur etc but that would not normally stop them from ending up in the USA at some point.
There was some great moments in the movie like making the round table by lifting the sides on a normal table and Excalibur coming out the bath... very clever and witty.
The special effects were also excellent especially the demon horse riders... really good stuff and of course its always good to see Partick Stewart but all the actors were great such as leading role Louis Ashbourne Serkis and Young Merlin (Angus Imrie)
A very good family movie and well worth watching
