In the city of Nottingham, a fearsome soldier returns home from war and a feisty young maiden travels towards her uncertain future. Strict laws must be obeyed on pain of death, and an ancient promise must be kept no matter what the consequence. But deep in the Forest of Sherwood, a band of lionhearted outlaws are gathering, ready to do battle in the name of vengeance and love. A thrilling combination of adventure, comedy, music and daredevil fighting, Wanted! Robin Hood will be a magical adventure for everyone.
