Watch The Kid Who Would Be King Trailer #2 for another look at this film including scenes that weren’t shown in the First Trailer. Written and directed by Joe Cornish this family adventure fantasy will be in theaters on January 25, 2019.
Among the cast, Patrick Stewart is the most recognizable name, at least with us geeks. However, another actor from the film, Louis Ashbourne Serkis, has a name that sounds familiar. That’s because this child actor’s dad is Andy Serkis, the award-winning actor who is famous for his motion capture portrayals of Gollum / Smeagol from The Lord of the Rings movies and Caesar from the Planet of the Apes films.

With the future at stake, Alex must become the great leader he never dreamed he could be.
