Mr. Link recruits explorer Sir Lionel Frost to help find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, this trio of explorers travel the world to help their new friend.
Old school magic meets the modern world in this epic adventure. Alex (Louis Ashbourne Serkis) thinks he's just another nobody, until he stumbles upon the mythical sword in the stone, Excalibur. Now, he must unite his friends and enemies into a band of knights and, together with the legendary wizard Merlin (Sir Patrick Stewart), take on the wicked enchantress Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson). With the future at stake, Alex must become the great leader he never dreamed he could be.Written by

Merlin's shirt continuously changes between gray and black between shots. When Merlin first appears, walks into a shop, and tells the clerk "I require your smock", he is referring to the clerk's Led Zeppelin T-shirt. When young Merlin wears it, the shirt is black; when old Merlin wears it, the shirt is gray. See more »
There's something written on the guard. Put it into Google Translate.
It means "Sword of Arthur". What if it's the Sword in the Stone?

Didn't expect much from this but the kids are good, Merlin (both old and young) is a delight and it's actually rather corny fun. If you expected it to be anything else, why are you watching it?
Only effect I thought weak was the one for 'MorganaDragon' and the rest are up to par, in the main.
Story isn't overlong, unless you can only tolerate cartoons. Neither the best, nor the worst film you'll see.
Give it a go. Avoid preconceptions. If you're disappointed, you simply have no soul. Particularly if you can't warm to Bedders immediately.
