A-Z: Eragon

I LOVE dragons!!  Who doesn’t?  Especially when they are cute and little…lol…

Eragon is one of my all time favorite movies.  I especially love the scene where Saphira is a baby dragon, accidentally puts a hole in the bag of milk and stalks and catches a rodent in the barn.   I think for me, the dragon, Saphira (voice by Rachel Weisz) makes the movie.  Her personality really brings Saphira to life and well, she just kicks butt!!

Eragon was released in 2006 after being filmed in several locations in both Hungary and Slovakia.  The movie stars Ed Speleers as Eragon who finds the dragon egg, Jeremy Irons as Brom, a fellow dragon rider who mentors Eragon and John Malkovich as the evil King Galbatorix.

Eragon learns that a dragon and its rider are bound together until death.  With the help of his mentor, Brom, Eragon learns sword fighting, magic and dragon-riding.  Eragon and Saphira team up with the group of rebels  Varden and fight an evil sorcerer, Durza (Robert Carlyle) and the king’s army, proving that he was indeed the dragon rider that had been foreseen in an ancient prophecy that would set the people free from the tyrant Galbatorix.

If you haven’t seen Eragon, I highly recommend it.  It’s perfect for a movie/pizza night.
