Synopsis

City life meets the mythical world of King Arthur when a young boy named Alex, who is bullied in school and disappointed with his ordinary life, finds the ancient leader’s sword, Excalibur. Following this discovery, he must assemble his own Round Table, befriending schoolmates and even working alongside former bullies to defeat the medieval enchantress Morgana, who has the power to call on all the world’s evil. Assisted by the legendary wizard Merlin, famously known as King Arthur’s magical advisor, Alex faces a series of quests that push him to be the hero he didn’t think he could be.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
