Sky Cinema has debuted the first trailer for the Sky Original animation ‘Dragon Rider’ featuring the voice of Thomas Brodie-Sangster.

The film tells the story of Firedrake (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), who wants to show the older generation he is a real dragon, not the naïve fledgeling 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 (Felicity Jones) in search for a mythical safe haven hidden in the Himalayas where dragons can live in peace.

On their quest, they encounter Ben (Freddie Highmore), 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 (Patrick Stewart) is hot on their tails to fulfil his own quest: to track and destroy every dragon.

Tomer Eshed makes his directorial debut on the animation which also features the voices of Felicity Jones, Freddie Highmore and Patrick Stewart.
