Never Say Die!

6. The Kid Who Would Be King (2018)

April 28, 2022

This month brings a movie that Drew and Rafe went into blind on: The Kid Who Would Be King. We have a lot to say as we visit a second Joe Cornish film for the podcast, including a focus on Joseph Campbell and "The Hero's Journey" monomyth. We highly recommend watching this movie! But we especially recommend watching it before listening to our spoiler-filled breakdown of the film and our attempt to gamify for an inspired game session.

What approach would you use to run a The Kid Who Would Be King inspired game? Would you stick to the Arthurian Legend or use a different one? And how closely would you follow The Hero's Journey? Let us know what inspiration this film has given you. Interact with the show on Instagram and Twitter or email us at
