This month Netflix releases the new and original animated series The Dragon Prince.
If watching Avatar: The Last Airbender are some of your fondest memories and UNCHARTED 3: Drakes Deception is a game you couldn’t put down, then Netflix’s new animated show The Dragon Prince is going to take over your world come this September 14.
The series follows two princes, Callum (voiced by Jack Desena) and his brother Ezran (Sasha Rojen). They ally with the elf Rayla (Paula Burrows), who was sent to kill them, in an attempt to end the conflict between their peoples. Utilizing three-dimensional computer animation with Cel-shading and a slower frame rate the show makes all the action resemble traditional two-dimensional animation. This unique style of gorgeous hand-painted backgrounds with a digital technique that blends the aesthetic of stop-motion and traditional hand-drawn cartoons in order to create more spirited animation sequences is something your not used to but is definitely worth experiencing.
And if that’s not enough to get you watching maybe the creative team behind it will, Aaron Ehasz the head writer and director of the epic genre-redefining animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender and Justin Richmond the co-director of the video game Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception should do it. In an interview with Vice.com Richmond said “It’s about the younger generation having a chance to come to power, and having to face what has come before them,” and went on to say “The whole point is that you can change the world. Kids are really, really powerful, they can do lots of amazing things, and at the same, it can be a story that’s really grounded and deep.” Plus the voice of Sokka from Avatar: The Last Airbender is the main character what else do you need to know?
