Patrick Stewart voices Drago in Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire trailer
Patrick Stewart voices Drago in the all-new epic action adventure Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire, debuting on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and On Demand on June 13, 2017 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Check out the trailer below!
Distinguished producer Raffaella De Laurentiis makes a triumphant return with a fresh installment of the legendary fantasy franchise that has delighted audiences worldwide. Packed with thrilling adventure and stunning visual effects, Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD showcases extraordinary special features including a featurette on the magic behind Drago and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film.
In an interesting bit of little-known trivia, Stewart was technically the first person to voice the original Dragonheart in the early ’90s when writer/original director Patrick Read Johnson shot test footage using a Jim Henson Studios-built animatronic head puppet. A young, unknown Clive Owen stood in for Bowen (later played by Dennis Quaid) and Stewart voiced the dragon, though the test was unsuccessful and the film was taken over by Rob Cohen, who created the dragon with CGI and the voice of Sean Connery.
In Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire, Patrick Stewart voices Drago, the magnificent dragon who became bonded with King Gareth. When the king dies, his potential heirs, twin grandchildren who possess the dragon’s unique strengths, use their inherited powers against each other to vie for the throne. When Drago’s source of power – known as the Heartfire – is stolen, more than the throne is at stake; the siblings must end their rivalry with swords and sorcery or the kingdom may fall.
The Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD bonus features include:
