With only one day left of term I am making an effort to get our playroom, puzzles, games, craft supplies and movie cupboard school holiday ready, with four kids at home I need plenty of options to keep us all happy, entertained and sane. Released only last week this is our latest addition to the DVD shelf: Justin and the Knights of Valour.
Justin and the Knights of Valour tells the story of Justin, a quiet young boy who lives in a kingdom ruled by bureaucrats and with laws for everything big or small. Inspired by his deceased grandfather Justin dreams of becoming a knight just like his heroic grandfather was but there are a few slight problems. The first issue is that knights have been ousted by the queen, the second hurdle is his father Reginald who wants Justin to become a lawyer just like himself.
Justin is struggling to decide, on the one hand he really wants to become a knight, fight for justice and win the heart of his dream girl Lara, on the other hand he doesn’t want to disappoint his father. His grandmother encourages him to follow his heart so he sets off on a journey to find his grandfather’s missing sword. With the help of his new found friends Talia and Melquiades he makes it to a far away castle where three monks train, teach and test him to become a real Knight of Valour.
While he is away a disgruntled former knight called Sir Heraclio, accompanied by a team of helpers, returns to take over the kingdom. Will Justin be ready to fight for what is right? He may not feel or look like a proper knight just yet but that won’t stop him from trying. It’s a time of learning for many, Justin’s father will come to accept his son’s big wish and Justin realises that it is not Lara who has his noble heart after all.
Justin and the Knights of Valour is available on Blu-ray (RRP $34.99), DVD (RRP $29.99) and as a digital download.
