kid who would be king
We just enjoyed watching THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING thanks to Fox Home Entertainment sending ageekdaddy.com a digital download code of the movie. The movie is available now to view via digital stream and download plus will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on April 16, 2019. Medieval magic merges with the modern world in this flick when the wizard Merlin recruits a new generation of heroes to defend mankind from the wicked enchantress Morgana and her army of supernatural villains. Can a group of school aged children save the world from becoming enslaved by these evil forces?

Although he is hundreds of years old, Merlin appears to twelve-year old Alex in the form of a young man. Merlin uses his magic, and the legendary sword Excalibur, to help Alex form a group of knights to fend off the forces of darkness. My kids were really intrigued by Merlin's use of magic in the movie which he manipulates through intricate hand gestures and arm movements. Plus you can check out Merlin's mesmerizing magic in more detail through tutorials on casting spells that are included as bonus content in the home entertainment video release of THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING.

Merlin challenges you to replicate his spells in these fun tutorial segments included with other bonus content that also includes deleted scenes, featurettes about the making of the movie, and a music video for "Be the King" by Lay Lay. Of course my daughter wanted to tackle this challenge to do moves like Merlin. So she tried to replicate Merlin's magical hand sequences for the spell of metal duplication. We didn't have any swords to duplicate like in THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING so we tried using forks instead. How'd she do?!

THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING. After watching the movie, if your family decides to do this too share your videos on social media with the hashtag #MovesLikeMerlin. Hey makes sure to follow @Geekdad248 on Twitter and Instagram and tag these ageekdaddy.com social media feeds if you are posting any videos! I'd be delighted to see your magic show.

THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING is rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America for fantasy action violence, scary images, thematic elements including some bullying, and language.
