reasons to watch the dragon prince

You seldom see a review of The Dragon Prince that doesn’t refer to its spiritual predecessor Avatar: The Last Airbender. You might recognize the name of Aaron Ehasz, the head writer of Avatar, as one of the creators of The Dragon Prince. Even Jack De Sena, the voice of our boomerang-wielding Sokka, leads as Prince Callum.

Many of the hallmarks between these two shows overlap. These two children’s animated shows are worlds apart yet close in resemblance. Let’s dive into the shared motifs of The Dragon Prince and Avatar: The Last Airbender and why they’re proof that you should watch the Netflix fantasy series, whose second season arrived today.

Did you know it’s been almost 12 years since Netflix moved their business model from subscription-mail DVD rentals to online streaming? The company pivoted to video (sorry!) in 2007. Why am I bringing this up? Because I can recall, clear as day, having conversations at the time that boiled down to my generation telling older generations that Netflix had just killed cable. Like all Cassandra’s, we were ignored.

Now, only a dozen years after taking their first steps into the digital world, Netflix is releasing original content so quickly it’s impossible — literally — to keep up. Even folks whose job is to watch and critique television all day stare with glazed eyes at the glut of content. Just this past October, the streaming giant released 60 new shows and films. That’s almost two per day. The month before that? 54 original releases.

So it’s no surprise that things get lost in the noise. But what is a surprise, at least to me, is that somehow The Dragon Prince was one of the shows that got lost. As of this writing, the first season has a paltry nine reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. All fresh. But compare that to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina with 87 reviews or Disenchanted with 72 reviews. The Dragon Prince is flying under the radar, which is a travesty. One I’m hoping to remedy by laying out exactly why you need to give the show a go before season two drops in 2019.

The head writer of Avatar: The Last Airbender teaming up with Netflix to create a fantasy animated series sounds like a match made in heaven.

Avatar: The Last Airbender was one of the greatest animated series of all time, if not the greatest. So it’s always an exciting prospect when one of the talented writers behind that beloved Nickelodeon show is working on something new. Because you know it will be something fantastic.

Which makes a team-up between Netflix and Avatar: The Last Airbender head writer Aaron Ehasz sound doubly fantastic. The streaming service has announced that it will release an all-new animated series called The Dragon Prince, a fantasy series co-created by Ehasz and Uncharted game director Justin Richmond.
