When introducing himself to the class, young Merlin gives his name as "Mertin Ambrosius Caledonensis". The first name is, of course, a sly play on "Merlin" he made up on the spot, but other two names are derived from names used to refer to the wizard Merlin in the legend of King Arthur and stories that inspired the character. Merlinus Caledonensis is another name for the Welsh folk character Myrddin Wyllt (the name means "of town of Carmarthen", a place in South Wales,) while Merlin Ambrosius is the given name of the Merlin character in the original Arthurian story Historia Regum Britanniae Godfrey of Monmouth See more »

I enjoy the idea of a modern retelling of King Arthur, but I wish the film had turned out a little better. There were far too many cringey moments relative to every touching or entertaining moment. Kids movies can be fun and profound without being super cheesy. It's an okay film, but it ends up being kinda forgettable.
