En route, he joins forces with a plucky barmaid called Talia (Saoirse Ronan) and a soothsayer called Malquiades (Walliams), and gains valuable training from three wise monks - Blucher (James Cosmo), Legantir (Charles Dance) and Braulio (Barry Humphries) - at the fabled Tower of Wisdom.
Meanwhile, banished Sir Heraclio (Mark Strong) and his sidekick Sota (Everett) exploit the absence of the knights to plot a coup...
