Trivia The Kid Who Would Be King

Director Joe Cornish has said that the film's title is a playful reference to the title of 'The man who would be king' (1975). The names of Alex's friends correspond with Knights of the Round Table: Lance is Sir Lancelot, Kaye is Sir Kay, and Bedders is Sir Bedivere. The school used in filming was also the secondary school that former James Bond Pierce Brosnan attended when he was a kid.
