Product Description Do you believe in dragons? Ruling a make-believe world of fantasy and fairy tales, these terrifying, winged predators never existed in real life. But what if they had? With CGI special effects created by the same production house that made Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, this landmark exploration takes an in-depth look at these ferocious beasts of myth and fable, from their unique anatomy and evolution to their legendary ability to breathe fire. Combining live action, natural history and state-of-the-art computer animation, DRAGON'S WORLD: A FANTASY MADE REAL will reveal everything you ever wanted to know about these spectacular flying creatures and much, much more. Amazon.com Fantasy enthusiasts and animal documentary aficionados alike are sure to get a kick from this imaginative blend of adventure and nature special that purports to investigate the discovery of a dragons corpse in modern-day Romania. Director Justin Hardy skillfully balances the framing story of a British scientific team that attempts to understand the creatures unique capabilities (flight, fire breathing) with documentary-style "re-creations" (narrated by The Lord of the Rings Ian Holm) that explain how dragons evolved since prehistoric times. Stunning CGI effects (members of the visual effects team worked previously on the Walking with Dinosaurs series and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets) help make these flashbacks as realistic as possible, but what really sells the premise is the script by Hardy and Charlie Foley (with assistance from acclaimed fantasy author Neil Gaiman), which uses real animal biology and history to present a compelling and plausible case for the existence of these mythological animals. --Paul Gaita
