Jimmy Johnston films Galavant

Date - 14 October, 2014, All News Television

Jimmy is on the set of Galavant this week filming this classic Disney fairy tale with echoes of “The Princess Bride” and “Monty Python.”

Brave young GALAVANT is heart-broken when his beloved Madelena spurns him after she’s kidnapped by King Richard, opting for his wealth and power rather than Galavant’s passionate love. Five years later, Galavant’s pretty much gone down the tubes, having gained weight, started drinking, and given up on his former noble pursuits. Enter Princess Isabella Maria Lucia Elisabetta de Valencia, whose parents have been kidnapped by King Richard in hopes that they’ll give up the priceless Jewel of Valencia; Isabella has come to a disinterested Galavant in the desperate hope that he can help her, and when he finds out that her adversary is King Richard, he’s all over it. Unfortunately, Galavant doesn’t know that Isabella’s mission isn’t quite what it seems to be…
