The Chivalric Code and Its Importance in The Kid Who Would Be King

The Kid Who Would Be King

Disclosure:  I was given a copy of this movie in order to facilitate my review.  All opinions are my own.

The Kid Who Would Be King is a movie that reminded me of a cross between ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ but in a modern-day setting.

One of the parts of this movie I loved the most was the message that it shared.  As we all know kids can be mean.  They for some reason feel it is ok to bully or make other kids feel ‘less’ than them.  This movie touches on The Chivalric Code and how important it is when it comes to working together.  The loose definition of chivalry (or chivalric) is bravery, courtesy, honor, and gallantry toward women.  Which in today’s society women can be replaced with one another.

In the movie when Merlin gives the kids a passionate speech regarding the chivalric code they take it to heart and find the importance and value in it.

After seeing the movie you will be able to have seen one of the coolest things in the film.  This is when Merlin performs the intricate hand gestures needed to summon his magical powers.  In the bonus content, they show us how to pull off the spells. THEN….

  • #MovesLikeMerlin – They would LOVE to have kids and parents alike share videos on Instagram of themselves attempting the magical hand sequences, and then tagging the film and using the custom hashtag #MovesLikeMerlin
