Sky Original ‘Dragon Rider’ gets a first trailer.

Sky Original animation Dragon Rider gets its first trailer.

Dragon Rider tells the story of Firedrake, who wants to show the older generation he is a real dragon, not the naïve fledgling they see him as. When he discovers that humans are about to destroy the forest where the dragons reside, he sets off on a daring crusade with his best friend Sorrel in search for a mythical safe haven hidden in the Himalayas where dragons can live in peace.

On their quest, they encounter Ben, an orphan, who they mistake for a dragon rider destined to help them on their voyage. The unlikely trio must learn to work together, despite their differences, as dragon-eating villain Nettlebrand is hot on their tails to fulfil his own quest: to track and destroy every dragon.

Tomer Eshed, in his directorial debut, brings to life Jonny Smith’s (Sherlock Gnomes, Gnomeo & Juliet) screenplay, which is based on the bestselling children’s novel of the same title by Cornelia Funke.

Dragon Rider boasts a star-studded cast of voices from Felicity Jones (Rogue One, The Theory of Everything), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (The Queen’s Gambit, The Maze Runner), Patrick Stewart (X-Men, Star Trek), and Freddie Highmore (Finding Neverland, The Good Doctor).

Dragon Rider is coming to Sky Cinema in the UK on 12th February, 2021.
