The Flight Of Dragons Story Detail
Combine expert storytelling from Rankin/Bass ("Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "The Last Unicorn") and storybook-come-to-life animation from Japanís Topcraft Studios -- predecessor of Studio Ghibli ("My Neighbour Totoro," "Spirited Away") -- and the result is a fantastical epic for all ages! "The Flight of Dragons" is set in the final days before humanity's belief in logic and science would eradicate magical beings completely. The realm of magic is being threatened by the realm of logic, so Carolinus, the green wizard, decides to shield it for all time. Vile Red Wizard Ommadon (James Earl Jones, voice of "Star Wars" villain Darth Vader) stands in his way, declaring that he will use his remaining power to make men destroy the Earth and themselves. Carolinus then calls for a quest. The good wizards summon Earth's only hope: the first man of both the realms "of science and magic" from the future. Playing with lines of reality and fiction, the man who arrives is Peter Dickinson (voiced by John Ritter), real-life author of influential fantasy book "The Flight of Dragons" (1979), a speculative biology of dragons.
