Eragon (13-Dec-2006)

Director: Stefen Fangmeier

Writer: Peter Buchman (screenplay)

From novel by: Christopher Paolini

Keywords: Juvenile

Film adaptation of the 2002 novel of the same name follows a young boy's fight against evil brought about by his discovery of a dragon's egg.

Eragon, a peasant child in the mythical kingdom of Alagaesia, discovers a blue stone sent by Princess Arya on his farm one day that turns out to be a dragon's egg. In good time, the egg hatches, bringing the dragon Saphira into young Eragon's world and placing him at the center of a prophecy depicting a fearsome dragon rider's extermination of the tyrannical King Galbatorix. Danger and peril await our hero in spades as he seeks to end the bad King's reign of terror and usher in an era of peace and prosperity like none before it.
