Original title : On - drakon
A long time ago, in a mythical Slavic past, it was tradition to sacrifice virgins to dragons. One day a courageous young knight couldn’t stand seeing his beloved ending up as an appetizer to an oversized lizard. He entered the dragon’s den, slayed the beast and saves his damsel. All’s well that end’s well? A few generation later, virgins no longer have to be afraid of being plucked out of the sky. Princess Miroslava is going to marry a descendant of the famous dragon slayer. At the party the guests do not see why they shouldn’t sing the old song with which dragons were once summoned. But they’ve barely finished the last couplet when the sky is darkened by the silhouette of a mythical winged creature that hasn’t been seen in ages and which only has one target: princess Miroslava!
After Indar Dzhendubaev story-boarded Timor Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the director of Nightwatch, Daywatch and Wanted made him an offer he couldn’t refuse: adapting the fantastic tale by the Dyachenko’s (the Ukrainian equivalent of J.K. Rowling when it comes to fantasy). With the support of Antony Tanev, a renowned producer of heroic fantasy (Conan the Barbarian, 300: Rise of an Empire), Dhzendubaev treats us to a dazzling romantic fantasy of epic splendor.
