It’s finally happened!
Excalibur: Behind the Movie is streaming!
With loads of background details, archival footage, scenes from the film itself, and new interviews with cast members, including Gabriel Byrne, Helen Mirren, Patrick Stewart, Liam Neeson, Nigel Terry, and of course, the director himself, John Boorman, this documentary gives you a real feel for what making a film in Ireland in 1980 was really like.
You can watch this wonderful documentary about the making of John Boorman’s masterpiece, Excalibur, at both Amazon Prime and iTunes.
Amazon Prime offers it for both sale and rental as a streaming film, or you can subscribe to PBS as an Amazon Channel and get it that way.
This is such lovely news! I know there are many of you out there who have been waiting patiently for YEARS to see this film and I hope this will finally be your opportunity to enjoy it.
For more background on the making of Excalibur: Behind the Movie, including my trip to Dublin to celebrate the premiere of the film and to meet directors Mark Wright and Alec Moore (finally!), check out these early postings, from 2013:
Congratulations to Mark Wright, the director of this documentary. He worked long and hard to get the film made and then produced and distributed. I am so glad to see PBS finally make his and Alec’s film available to fans around the world. I hope everyone gets a chance to see it!
