by Tomer Eshed ZFF for Kids

Lung, a young silver dragon, has spent his life hiding in the jungle with his family. When humans threaten to destroy their home, he finally gets the chance to prove his abilities. Together with goblin girl Sulphur Skin, Lung sets off on an adventurous journey to seek out the fabled ‘edge of heaven’, the dragons’ last refuge. Along the way, they meet the shrewd orphan Ben, who claims to be a dragon rider. There is no time for doubt, as the dragon-eating monster Nesselbrand is snapping at their heels. The dissimilar trio must learn to pull together as quickly as possible. DRACHENREITER brings to life in animated form the magical world described in the eponymous fantasy novel by Cornelia Funke.
