Time Bandits tells the story of a young boy, Kevin, who is intrigued by history but neglected by his parents. He gets the chance to make his dreams come true when a band of six time-traveling dwarfs appears out of thin air in his bedroom. Having stolen the Supreme Being's one-of-a-kind map of time and space to get rich, the greedy gang whisk Kevin off on an exciting journey to the depths of history, skipping from one era to another. To further complicate matters, the dangerous arch-rival known as the Evil Genius is hot on their trail, bent on getting his hands on the precious map for his own evil scheme. He uses his powers and the gang’s greed to lure them into the Time of Legends for an epic showdown that stretches time and imagination.
