Trailer Revealed for Upcoming Sky Original Film Dragon Rider
From 12 February, join Firedrake, a young silver dragon on his magical adventure of courage, self-confidence, hopefulness, and the forging of unusual friendships as Dragon Rider, a Sky Original flies into homes on Sky Cinema this February half term.
Dragon Rider comes from the original story of Cornelia Funke's worldwide bestselling children's novel of the same title, brought to screen from the filmmakers behind The NeverEnding Story and the Fantastic Four film franchise. 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, a Sky Original, tells the story of Firedrake (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), 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 (Felicity Jones) in search for a mythical safe haven hidden in the Himalayas where dragons can live in peace.
