Girls can do anything they set their minds to--even if they happen to live in 9th Century England. Based on characters from Martin Baynton's "Jane and the Dragon" books, Jane and the Dragon: A Dragon's Tale is the story of an unconventional, adolescent girl whose best friend is a talking, fire-breathing dragon. More suited to knighthood than the traditional role of lady in waiting, the headstrong Jane receives King Caradoc's permission to become the first female knight's apprentice after rescuing the young Prince. Jane is determined to succeed in becoming a knight in spite of a significant lack of support from her fellow knight-in-training Gunther. Her mental and physical strength shine as she trains with Sir Theodore, but equally important to her ultimate success is her mastery of lessons in teamwork, honesty, self-confidence, and taking responsibility for the consequences of her actions. Add in Jane's inherent sense of compassion, her dedication to helping others, and her strong friendships with Dragon, and castle servants Pepper, Rake, and Jester, and Jane is definitely one very special girl. The striking, pencil-drawn look of this animated series, combined with the animators' careful attention to details like how hair and fabrics look and move, give this production a powerful sense of uniqueness and authenticity. The bonus "The Art of Jane and the Dragon" featurette explores some of the goals and techniques used in the animation process while "Character Profiles" provides additional background information for each of the five main characters. Also included is the program's original concept art. An entertaining and inspiring tale of a strong young girl determined to live up to her full potential, Jane and the Dragon: A Dragon's Tale is a winner for kids ages 5 and older. --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally available on DVD!!! August 29, 2008
Format:DVD
I'm so glad this is finally available on DVD! Hopefully the remaining episodes will be coming out soon as well. This is one of my favorite TV shows - entertaining to both children and adults, and with a good combination of action, humor and thoughtfulness. Good, clean family viewing with a moral to each episode meets knights, dragons & life in a medieval castle.

The premise is that 13 year old Jane has decided to become a knight rather than a lady-in-waiting. No one takes her seriously until a dragon shows up, and Jane is the one who saves the day, becoming best friends with Dragon in the process. Each episode involves either some new knight-in-training challenge, or sometimes just life around the castle. The characters are nicely animated (this is done by WETA, the folks who did the effects for the Lord of the Rings and Narnia movies, so you know it's good!) and their personalities well developed.

As seen on NBC, Jane and the Dragon: A Dragon's Tale is a children's DVD collection showcasing the first five episodes of a marvelous children's animated series based on author Martin Baynton's best-selling children's books. Brought to life with Weta Workshop's stunning, three-dimensional computer animation - so advanced as to show the fluid movement of Jane's fiery red hair and the natural flow of characters' clothing - Jane and the Dragon: A Dragon's Tale stars a spunky, twelve-year-old heroine who wasn't content simply to grow up to be a lady-in-waiting. She dared to face a fearsome dragon and rescue Prince Cuthbert; her bravery earned her special permission from King Caradoc to begin training as a knight's apprentice. At the beginning of the first episode, Jane is already working hard at her training, and has formed a fast friendship with the witty and easygoing Dragon - but her first test to be worthy of her chosen path as a future knight looms large! Other episodes show the dilemma of Jane's friend the Jester challenged to a duel of honor by a much larger, stronger, and more experienced opponent; the difficulties Jane must face in learning to work as a team with her fellow squire; and her personal troubles when her mother forbids her to attend the castle ball as a knight, stipulating that she must wear a gown or not go at all. Superb voice acting, captivating visuals worthy of the theater screen, and intelligent writing sure to entertain viewers of all ages make Jane and the Dragon: A Dragon's Tale a superb DVD ideal as a gift for dragon lovers of all ages and enthusiastically recommended for school and community library DVD collections for children.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Greatest shows I've ever seen! December 5, 2010
Format:DVD
Jane and the Dragon is one of the most charming children's television shows I have ever seen. The series focuses on a medieval girl named Jane and her best friend Dragon. Unlike most girls of the time, Jane chooses to take her destiny into her own hands and seeks to become a knight, rather than settling to become a lady-in-waiting. The stories focus on (as one might expect from the title) Jane and Dragon's various adventures and stories. These two make for great lead characters, and audiences are easily drawn to them. But like most good shows, there is an outstanding supporting cast of characters, from the gardener Rake to the clever and witty Jester to rival squire Gunther. Indeed, it seems as though every character has been very well thought out, and there is a great amount of depth to each and every one of them, whether they appear in every episode or merely a few. The endearing cast of characters contributes much to the overall success of the show.

But this attention to detail is not just found in the characters -- it is in fact throughout the entire show. The 3D animation is stellar (done by Weta Workshop -- better known for their work on the Lord of the Rings), the art design is beautiful, the music is catchy and the dialog is well written. It only takes watching a single episode to realize the extraordinary amount of effort put into the show by its developers -- a trait that many other shows, children's or otherwise, would do well to emulate.

Each episode runs approximately 22 minutes long, telling an individual, stand-alone story focusing on Jane, Dragon, and often several of the supporting cast.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll Love Jane and Her Friends! February 11, 2009
Format:DVD
Jane and the Dragon is one of my top-rated children shows of all time.

Jane is a girl who wants to be more than what others' wanted her to be. She believes that she can do things as well as a man could, and sets out to be a knight.
As for the Dragon, he's a lovable lizard (haha). Jane and him have a close relationship, and it's very cute and enjoyable to watch them fling nicknames back and forth at each other--such as the Dragon calling her "Short-life", as dragons live many human lifetimes, and Jane calling Dragon names such as "You overgrown lizard!" This never turns into a mean gesture, rather something you will grow to love and remember fondly.

The three best parts of the show are the characters, the art, and the messages that the show sends to its audience.

The characters that surround Jane are nothing more than a joy. Even when you're annoyed with one at the moment, later on you can always see that they have more than one side to them, they're not flat characters.

For instance, it may be easy to dislike Gunther, but in some of the episodes, he shows that he doesn't always feel good about his actions, and often tries to make up for them in some way or another. He's grown to be one of my favorite characters, actually.

Other characters such as Chester the Jester, Pepper the Cook, Rake the Gardener, and Smithy the Blacksmith support Jane through her quests, but also get plenty of their own time in the spotlight so you never feel like they're left out or unimportant.

The art is simply gorgeous. It has a painted feel to it, and appeals to EVERYBODY. And seriously, I mean that. If you don't like the graphics, that's fine, but I doubt anyone could HATE them.
