Avatar is a stroke of genius. This show is the opposite of that. Where Avatar has broad appeal, this show must be geared toward 7 year olds. Also whats up with the elf chicks voice acting. Sometimes SCOTTISH, sometimes not.

I haven't reviewed on RT in over a year but came back just to give this series 5 stars!!! Though the motivation for Prince Callum is unrelatable, the series as a whole is remarkable. It's one of the best written series I've ever watched. The series is so rich and the characters so appealing, I can't wait for Season 2! In fact, one of the highlights for me is the playful banter between the sister and the brother, Claudia and Soren respectively. I have an older sister who I cherish, and I think that whoever is writing their lines understands loving sibling dynamics. It's just so rare to see these dynamics, normally in dramas siblings are pitted against one another or playful banter is always referenced but never seen. But by showing it, the characters grow in depth, they become relatable, and you begin to care for them. I absolutely LOVE this series and I wish the best to Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond. I hope Netflix allows them to give us many new Seasons, and I can't wait for them to explore this fantastical world.

Wow, so what can I say about The Dragon Prince? Creators Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond tell the tale of an exciting magical world divided by war and guarded by dragons. I was instantly hooked from the first episode. The voice acting is phenomenal. The animation and music are beautiful, and the world building is well-crafted and immersive. The story has good pacing, and the writing is very articulate. There are interesting characters with compelling storylines, and not a single plot point goes wasted. This show has the right blend of action, comedy, and drama. If you're a fan of Avatar the Last Airbender, then you should definitely give The Dragon Prince a try. 10/10

Although coming from a very saturated genre, The Dragon Prince gives a very entertaining piece of media through fascinating development and chemistry between characters, and the lovey art style. I would highly recommend this show to all.

The music is too overt often times undercutting the scene rather than enhancing it.
The story is overly bloated and full of padding, even though the series was designed for a binge watch streaming service.
In each slide episode there needless exposition on where the story is, even though you just finished watch the last episode a minute ago. To compound upon it, Netflix added a feature which provides the user with a recap of the story, making the exposition even worse.
Because of This the story moves at a snails pace never allowing it's self to truly progress, making experiencing the series a painful slog for anyone above the age of 13.

The writing is terrible, by four episodes in every hole is some lame pun or joke about a weird word or phrase the one character says to another. This is the majority of the interactions between our main trio, which is tiering when all of them are jokers and none are straight men.

The main villain showed potential to be a nuanced character at the beginning of the series, always having a rational methodology to his seemingly evil plans. This is untill he tasks his children to kill the main trio to retrieve the magucal macguffin for himself, untill the end of the season where he becomes a full generic villain with spooky skin and hollow eyes. A massive departure from the complex antagonists within the last Airbender.

I recommend that anyone that enjoyed the last Airbender avoid this series as they'll just be dissapointed and frustrated by the fifth episode, if not sooner.

Great series. All characters are complex and nuanced, which is often the problem with these types of fantasy series. Good and evil are often completely black and white, which is not the case here. Amazing animation too
