Another reimagining of the classic legend of King Arthur, titled ‘The Pendragon Cycle’ is reportedly under production with Jeremy Boreing and Ryan Whitaker taking up the direction for this upcoming fantasy series. If you are still wondering what exactly are the Arthurian legends then let us help you out because if classics of English literature ever had any origin, it comes from these. There was a time in Medieval Britain that was obsessed with chivalry and the now familiar concept of “knights in shining armor” and King Arthur pretty much initiated that trope. Residing in Camelot, King Arthur was the bravest of men who embarked upon several adventures with his Knights of the Round Table, killing monsters, enemies and any threat to his kingdom. Thomas Malory’s ‘Le Morte d’Arthur’ was the text that served as the basic source for all the modern day adaptations of the Arthurian legends.
However, this upcoming series is slightly different as it will be set in the era before the Medieval Britain. The Roman ruled Britain was still prominent and pagan tribes warred with Saxon and Pict invaders. Wanting to actualize the dream of a unified Britain, Merlin, the son of an Atlantean princess and the bard, Taliesen, begins his search for a king who can unite the lands whist warding off ancient evils and enduring the rise
