Who is Merlin? This is a question that many of us believe we can answer based on what we have read, seen or heard in the different adaptations of the arturic legend in popular culture. Now comes a whole new adventure with Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), Patrick Stewart (Logan, Star Trek: The Next Generation), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: imspoible - Fallout) and young Angus Imrie, The Kid Who Would Be King.
The starting point is in the character's own creation, someone who the older he gets physically the more mentally rejuvenates. That is to say, Patrick Stewart's Merlin is the past while Angus Imrie's Merlin is the present, but "when he feels pressure or struggles with situations he transforms into the old Merlin". "I'm here as the figure in which it transforms when things are not going well, I think I appear in six or seven pages of the script, but it's been a very interesting journey, especially because of the existence of two Merlines," Stewart explained. , one of the main claims of the film.
"You'll have to find the entrance to the underworld, defeat Morgana in her own realm before moon musk the sun and your people, and the land in wich you live is doom" - "You must find the entrance to the underworld, defeat Morgana in your own kingdom before the moon masks the sun and your people, and the land in which you live, is condemned "- this is the message that old Merlin sends to Alex (Louis Ashbourne Serkis) and his friends, This is the key to the puzzle, the solution to the confrontation with Morgana. "What you've seen on set is my first scene in the film, the first time we understand there are two Merlines. One of the most interesting aspects of this was working with Angus, with the fact that we We overlap in some things, because I will become that young man, so I imitate him in some things and vice versa, "Stewart has made clear.

The Kid Who Would Be King, written and directed by Cornish, will tell us the story of Alex and his friends, when he discovers the mythical sword Excalibur and meets the wizard Merlin.
