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.
The film is released on Sky Cinema February 12th.
