A new family fantasy series is heading to Netflix later this year in the form of “The Letter for the King”. The series is based on the bestselling book of the same name by Dutch author Tonke Dragt. The story tells of 16 year old Sixteen-year-old Tiuri, who is about to become a knight, and his mission to deliver a secret letter to the king – a letter that will decide the fate of the whole kingdom. The story is described as one boy’s battle against evil, set in an enchanted world of chivalry, courage and true friendship.
Amir Wilson (“His Dark Materials”) will play Tiuri alongside other cast including David Wenham (“The Lord of The Rings”), comedian Omid Djalili (“His Dark Materials”), Peter Ferdinando (“King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”) and Ruby Serkis (“National Treasure”). The new series is expected to arrive on Netflix later this year although an exact date has yet to be confirmed.
