Dragons are real and they’re among us. That’s the hook to the children’s book series Dragonology, which Universal bought the rights to in 2008. At that time, screenwriter Leonard Hartman was hired to crack the story of a team of dragonologists – people who study dragons, of course – who try and stop an evil group from turning the world’s remaining dragons on humanity.
