The fourth volume of the delightful animated series for children of all ages from WETA Workshop, the people behind the amazing special effects from The Lord Of The Rings and King Kong has all the fun and magic we have come to expect from this wonderful program.
Jane is an adolescent girl who lives in a small medieval European kingdom. Although she was raised to be a lady-in-waiting, Jane has always dreamed of becoming a brave knight. She wins the chance to become an apprentice knight after encountering - and befriending - a 300-year-old dragon.
Weta Workshop has partnered with New Zealand author and illustrator Martin Baynton, to create a television series based on Martin's best selling books, Jane and the Dragon. Martin has been illustrating and writing children's books for twenty two years and the content of Jane and the Dragon is a perfect fit for Weta Workshop's first foray into children's television production. Drawing on the skills of the Weta Workshop design team, they are bring the same creativity and eye for detail to the world of Jane that was used in the creation of The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.
Their work has been combined with the latest digital effects technology, developed by a visual effects team supervised by Trevor Brymer, to deliver a beautiful and stunning new aesthetic for animated television. Each 30 minute episode will have your child mesmerized from start to finish.
Review: A Delightful series full of great visuals and storylines that will entertain children with positive, insightful and problem solving messages. Highly recommended.
