Movie Reviews

Finally available on DVD!!!
Sigrun Denny | Seattle, WA | 08/29/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm so glad this is finally available on DVD! Hopefully the remaining episodes will be coming out soon as well. This is one of my favorite TV shows - entertaining to both children and adults, and with a good combination of action, humor and thoughtfulness. Good, clean family viewing with a moral to each episode meets knights, dragons & life in a medieval castle.

The premise is that 13 year old Jane has decided to become a knight rather than a lady-in-waiting. No one takes her seriously until a dragon shows up, and Jane is the one who saves the day, becoming best friends with Dragon in the process. Each episode involves either some new knight-in-training challenge, or sometimes just life around the castle. The characters are nicely animated (this is done by WETA, the folks who did the effects for the Lord of the Rings and Narnia movies, so you know it's good!) and their personalities well developed."

"I happened on Jane & the Dragon by accident as I was flipping through channels one day. OMG...one episode and I'm HOOKED! I'm an able-minded 46 year old woman and I just adore this show! The animation is simply magical and the storylines are meaningful for young and old alike. I highly recommend these DVDs! I know I'M going to get them!

A superb DVD ideal as a gift for dragon lovers of all ages

"As seen on NBC, Jane and the Dragon: A Dragon's Tale is a children's DVD collection showcasing the first five episodes of a marvelous children's animated series based on author Martin Baynton's best-selling children's books. Brought to life with Weta Workshop's stunning, three-dimensional computer animation - so advanced as to show the fluid movement of Jane's fiery red hair and the natural flow of characters' clothing - Jane and the Dragon: A Dragon's Tale stars a spunky, twelve-year-old heroine who wasn't content simply to grow up to be a lady-in-waiting. She dared to face a fearsome dragon and rescue Prince Cuthbert; her bravery earned her special permission from King Caradoc to begin training as a knight's apprentice. At the beginning of the first episode, Jane is already working hard at her training, and has formed a fast friendship with the witty and easygoing Dragon - but her first test to be worthy of her chosen path as a future knight looms large! Other episodes show the dilemma of Jane's friend the Jester challenged to a duel of honor by a much larger, stronger, and more experienced opponent; the difficulties Jane must face in learning to work as a team with her fellow squire; and her personal troubles when her mother forbids her to attend the castle ball as a knight, stipulating that she must wear a gown or not go at all. Superb voice acting, captivating visuals worthy of the theater screen, and intelligent writing sure to entertain viewers of all ages make Jane and the Dragon: A Dragon's Tale a superb DVD ideal as a gift for dragon lovers of all ages and enthusiastically recommended for school and community library DVD collections for children."
Hurray for Jane

"Terrific. Having two granddaughters it is awesome to have dvds out there like this that show them they can be anything they want. And the animation is just incredible! I find myself watching it out of fascination and appreciation of the anime. Highly recommend."
