Eragon: December 15,
ERAGON, a fantasy
adventure for young people based on the phenomenally
successful novel by Christopher Paolini – the first book in
the young author’s epic Inheritance Trilogy – is a timeless
yet modern tale.
The book’s most fantastical character – a flying dragon
named Saphira – arrives via the high-tech wizardry of the
industry’s most honored visual effects houses: WETA Digital
(the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “King Kong”) and
Industrial Light & Magic (the “Star Wars” films, “Jurassic
Park”). In addition, WETA created ERAGON’s climactic and
massive battle scene, in which the forces of good, led by
the young Dragon Rider Eragon and Saphira, battle the armies
of the evil King Galbatorix.
For over two millennia, dragons have been – depending on the
culture and times – beloved, feared, or even worshipped.
Today, the mythical creatures are a mainstay of pop culture.
ERAGON’s Saphira is inspired by the rich heritage of the
storied winged creatures, but for the first time, the power
of state-of-the-art computer generated imagery brings myth
to photo-real, emotional life. What “Jurassic Park” was to
dinosaurs, ERAGON is to dragons. Indeed, Saphira is a step
beyond the dinosaurs of “Jurassic Park,” as her facial
imagery conveys thoughts and feelings.

fantasy flim they have made so far. I
