TVLine Items: Time Bandits Sets Premiere, Grammys Date and More

Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s batch of Time Bandits will make their debut on Wednesday, July 24 on Apple TV+.

Created by Waititi, Clement and Iain Morris, the reimagining of Terry Gilliam’s 1981 cult fantasy film is officially described as a “comedic journey through time and space with a ragtag group of thieves and their newest recruit: an eleven-year-old history nerd” (played by relative newcomer Kal-El Tuck). “Together, they set out on a thrilling quest to save the boy’s parents — and the world.”
