Unique, painting-style animation that reflects humor and the
specialness of Montreal. Fun stories--- as you watch it, you feel
constantly surprised by the level of its clever dialogue, beautiful
animation, and just how much fun it is! This is soooooooo much better
than typical children's programming. As a 39 year old artist, I love
it! This show seems to ignore all the rules about what is required for
commercial success. It is creative, moral, funny, and unique. WOW is
all I can say. I can't wait until it is available for purchase.
Parents, this is a great show for kids, but you will also enjoy watching it. Highly, highly recommended. Give it a try and you will be hooked.
This is a FABULOUS program! The animation style is unusual, but is
faithful to the illustrations from the beloved original books. "Jane
and the Dragon" is not attempting to look like "Finding Nemo" or
"Cinderella"--it is a creative work with its own unique voice and
I absolutely love this series (and am 39 years old). So does my mom (who is 65 and usually has no use for animation). Little girls also love spunky, brave, imperfect, funny, and loyal Jane, who has developed a really close and loving friendship with Dragon. (Of course, little boys can also relate to the knights backdrop of all the stories and the idea of befriending a dragon, and the program teaches boys a valuable lesson about treating girls as equals and building friendships with girls, too.) This is not the program for someone who likes shoot-em-'up, superhero style animation. (It is also not a program for sexist adults or "no girls allowed"-type boys.) Instead, it is a thoughtful, well-written, character-driven program. Jane is a great role model for girls and boys. The plots are interesting and empowering, and generally revolve around the problems Jane and Dragon face in the kingdom. The episodes explore the relationships between the characters and the characters are challenged to grow and change, just as real children are.
I love "Jane and the Dragon", and I can't recommend it more highly to parents and lovers of good storytelling.
