Dragon Wars: Fire and Fury

Overview

Dragons were once thought to be just as real as wolves, boars or deer. We go inside some of the greatest battles between man and dragon in Western folklore and explore the many influences that came together to create the sum of all medieval fears.

Through a mix of live action sequences and cutting-edge CGI, famous dragon tales are brought roaring to life in the modern world, including the legend of Beowulf, the Scandinavian warrior king, and Fafnir, the vengeful dragon that inspired Tolkien’s “The Hobbit.” Experts weigh-in on the credibility of these and other fables, providing additional historical context. Guided by art historian Dr. Janina Ramirez, we’ll examine the roots of the dragon’s origin and see how its image has been used for thousands of years.
