When a modern-day preteen named Alex finds an ancient sword, he’s challenged to assemble an army of kids to fight off an evil enchantress who returns from medieval times in this new movie. Alex is just a regular kid, so he doesn’t think he can be a leader. But he must fight to be a great leader if he wants to save his school…and the world.
Our Take on The Kid Who Would Be King
The Kid Who Would Be King is rated PG for mild fantasy violence, some bullying and language, and scary images. Especially sensitive preteens may find it to be too scary, but for a majority of kids, it’ll just be a fantasy adventure they can enjoy in the moment. Parents can discuss the elements of good and evil with preteens and real-life ways of responding to evil in the world.
