What does it say?
Poil is a little girl raised by a mighty dragon. But when her father has to pay the Witchcraft with her second most precious possession, it is Foil that he offers, plunging his daughter into infinite sadness and forcing her to flee the family cave.
Poil then embarks on a journey to discover the world of men. In contact with them, she will learn friendship, solidarity, but also the greed that seems to eat away at men’s hearts.
From the creators of Wakfu and Dofus
Cock-a-doodle Doo ! Princess Dragon is made in France, produced by the independent company Ankama. Behind this name, known to gamers, hides in particular Anthony Roux, nicknamed Tot, to whom we owe the creation of the universe called Krozmoz, where the Dofus video game and the animated series Wakfu take place. At his side, Jean-Jacques Denis, former storyboarder who became director of the animated series Dofus and the film Dofus Book 1: Judith.
With this original story which is primarily aimed at children, the two long-time friends pay homage to the traditional tales of their childhood, on a simple scenario without downtime and thanks to endearing characters. The two little heroines are cute and meet on their way the Sorcenouille (frog-witch), the hilarious Fiduval pony or the annoying Albert.
The theme of friendship serves as a backdrop to this fable, which touches on other subjects such as the arranged marriage for which the princess is destined, the king’s warlike spirit, the relationship with the nature and a universal morality: money does not buy happiness.
This assumed classicism is also underlined by the visual work, inspired as much by the illustrators of the past such as Edmond Dulac and Gustave Doré but also by graphic techniques little used today. The watercolor rendering of the sets and the frame-by-frame animation give this film a vintage feel, which sometimes evokes the creations of Studio Ghibli.
