Storyline

At the destruction of Planet Tek at the hands of the planet-consuming Beast planet, Princess Tekla is the sole survivor. In desperation, she reaches a system where four planets named respectively Fire, Bone, Rock and Ice who continually raid each other for the resources that each planet needs. She crashlands on planet Ice where one such raid by the Rock people was confronted by the Ice people. A raiding party from the Beast attacks to silence her, but while they exterminate almost all the combatants, they are beaten back with the help of Graveheart, a miner of the Rock people and King Cryos of Ice. Princess Tekla appoints Graveheart with a massive critical task. Against all odds, he must build an alliance among the worlds to face the horror that is to come.

A Real Treat
15 March 2007 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I recently rented and watched the 6 DVD's of this series and thoroughly enjoyed it! It has such artwork/graphics I sat in complete awe from one scene to another. Such detail was done on the movements and art I wondered just how long it took the artists/creators to complete each episode. The stories for each episode alongside the running planet wars theme were excellent ... so much so that both adults and youngsters can sit comfortably together and enjoy this series.

I've read a comment about a series called Reboot, which I've not seen (but think I'll be renting it next!). In fact, I don't watch much animated or cgi'd films, but I was most certainly greatly impressed with this series. I hope, like the other user's comments, to see more of this series if they decide to make more. Absolutely AMAZINGLY good! It's a real treat, so I strongly recommend it for viewing.
