Can you believe it's been 16 years since Kaamelott first aired?! (16 years, 11 months, 1 day to be exact.)
Why in the world did Kaamelott end?
When Kaamelott came to an end after 5 years in October 2009, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Arthur (Alexandre Astier). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Kaamelott reunion disappoint people?
Kaamelott aired from 2005-2009 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 Astier said he's not sure if Kaamelott would work today. “I don't want to see old Arthur,” he told a journalist (Astier turned 47 in June). “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 Kaamelott movie?
In a recent interview, François Rollin (who played Loth) said he can't imagine a Kaamelott 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 Alexandre Astier 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 Kaamelott movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Kaamelott film, Audrey Fleurot stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Kaamelott reboot?
Recasting Kaamelott 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 Kaamelott reunion, a Kaamelott movie, or a Kaamelott reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
