The Dragon Prince - Book Two: Sky TV review

The Second Season of The Dragon Prince continues the journey of the human princes Callum (Jack De Sena) and Ezran (Sasha Rojen) and their new Elven friend Rayla (Paula Burrows) to return the newly hatched Dragon Prince to his mother. Much like The Lord of the Rings, the fellowship’s journey stretches long and wide, but there’s plenty of character developement along the way as Callum attempts to find a way to access primal magic without a stone, Ezran attempts to teach the baby dragon to fly, and Rayla puts aside her fear of water for a voyage on a boat with a blind sea captain suffering from narcolepsy.

Although the opening episode “Echoes of Thunder” is pretty heavy in opening narration and exposition to set the stage for the events which will follow, the series builds momentum over its nine-episode “Book One” by focusing on the young protagonists of Callum (Jack De Sena), Ezran (Sasha Rojen), and Rayla (Paula Burrows) who push through initial distrust to work together and begin their journey.
