Tutenstein: Clash of the Pharaohs
USA, 2008  TV  

Directed by Rob LaDuca, Bob Richardson

Tutenstein, Luxor and a reluctant Cleo use the Magical Mirror of Isis to travel back to the moment of Tut's death. Tut hopes to change history and fulfill his destiny as a full-grown pharaoh. Unfortunately, a mysterious stranger also wants the magical mirror and steals it right under their noses at the museum. A chase of the scoundrel ensues and suddenly, the Mirror of Isis takes our three heroes to the wrong era in Egyptian history, where Tut's illustrious background is not recognized—and Cleo is mistaken for Cleopatra. Working together, the three solve the mystery of Tut's death and return to the present with a friendship stronger than ever. (source:
