Can you believe it's been 9 years since Camelot first aired?! (9 years, 10 months, 29 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Camelot end?
When Camelot came to an end after 1 year in June 2011, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Morgan le Fay (Eva Green), King Arthur (Jamie Campbell Bower) and Merlin (Joseph Fiennes). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Camelot reunion disappoint people?
Camelot aired from 2011-2011 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Campbell Bower said he's not sure if Camelot would work today. “I don't want to see old King Arthur,” he told a journalist (Campbell Bower turned 32 in November). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.
Still hoping for a Camelot movie?
In a recent interview, Jamie Campbell Bower said he can't imagine a Camelot reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Claire Forlani (who played Igraine) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Camelot movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Camelot film, Joseph Fiennes stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Camelot reboot?
Recasting Camelot for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Camelot reunion, a Camelot movie, or a Camelot reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
