09:00 PM SCI FI ORIGINAL MOVIE--BOOK OF BEASTS, THE (2009)
Also known as Merlin and the Book of Beasts, this is a new movie set at Camelot. There is not much available about the film and nothing yet on Wikpedia. The telefilm stars Battlestar Galactica's James Callis as Merlin, and a complete cast list can be found on the IMD. The web site of the production company, Tamden Communications, offers some details, including a brief synopsis, as follows:
Once in a great while, the world's most powerful wizards gather together for a meeting of the minds, testing their powers and abilities to determine who among them should lead. It is on a journey to one of these summits that Merlin now finds himself - but his enemies have other ideas. Merlin has to use all of his most powerful magic to survive against the fantastic creatures and wizards that plague him... or he'll die trying.
SciFi's trailer has been posted on YouTube. The film seems to be set after Arthur's death and pits Merlin against a series of magical foes, including Medusa (!), to save the life of Arthur's daughter.
