Quotes

Ayden: I know all too well about the danger of dragons. It was a dragon that took my parents from me. But I was able to look past my fear. If we don't hurt them, they won't hurt us. It's just a young dragon. It's an orphan, like me.

New Family Favorite
26 November 2015 | by dberkley-73210See all my reviews

This is my new favorite Christmas Movie! Think "Santa Claus: The Movie" meets "How to Train Your Dragon" meets "Lord of the Rings" with a Sean Connery Santa Claus! Obviously the budget pales in comparison, so don't come expecting the best effects, but they aren't terrible either. Father Christmas is amazing and the story line is a fairly unique take on rescuing Christmas. My kids LOVE dragons so we decided to take a risk on this. Best decision ever. This movie is a new tradition for our family starting now!

Unlike the ordinary orphan based films, these orphans are friends and partners (for the most part) from the very beginning of the movie. They aren't fighting over the magical items in the film and trust is not a rare commodity. As a parent I thoroughly enjoyed watching this film with my children. Again, if you are expecting the effects of a big budget Hollywood film you will be disappointed. But if you are looking for an original Christmas movie (sure it's probably inspired by others) then it's worth a shot.
