Did You Know?


The scene where Drake produces ignited flatulence and destroys the mill by accident is partly re-used from DragonHeart (1996) when Bowen and Draco attacked the first village - footage from the first film is used as the mill bursts into flames. See more »


Kwan's hand movements are several seconds late when he says "Turn that way so you don't hit the mill. Then let it all out." See more »


Mansel: Drake is an innocent, he's easily mislead!
Geoff: Don't worry. I'll protect him.
Mansel: Who's going to protect him from you?

Tale of a boy and his dragon
6 July 2017 | by a_chinnSee all my reviews

Okay kids fare about a stable boy who befriends a young dragon. The dragon is voiced by Robby Benson, who's certainly no Sean Connery, who did the voice of the dragon in the original film which I've never actually seen, although Benson did do the voice Beast in Disney's animated version of "Beauty and the Beast" so maybe he does have a bit of cred. This film is not a big budget film by any measure, but it's not exactly a cheap low budget production either. Outside of Benson, there are no real name actors, but the special effects are all good and the writing and direction are also competently done, which is more than I was expecting from a De Laurentiis production. I think what was most strange about this film is who exactly was the target audience? It's PG-13 for a fair amount o violence, so it's not exactly a kids movie, but I'm not exactly sure that teens or even pre-teens would be all that interested in a corny tale of a boy and his dragon. Oh well, it kind of works and is passable enough of entertainment.
